Parolee Practices Religion at Direction of Government

From the beautiful people at Liberty Level:

First, William Stanley’s release was delayed three months, according to the ACLU. Apparently West Virginia has a prohibition on cohabitation if you’re unmarried (no joke), and since he had been planning on moving in with his fiancée, he couldn’t leave.

Then, he was placed in the Union Mission, where he attended religious classes and had to go to an approved church. “Being forced by the government to practice a religion is the antithesis of what it means to be an American,” said Andrew Schneider, executive director of the West Virginian branch of the ACLU.

For the rest.
