All-Christian prison proposed for Wakita, OK
Via Tulsa World:
This tiny town near the Oklahoma-Kansas state line north of Enid may soon own the country's only all-Christian prison, with Christian administrators, employees, counselors and programs.
"If Chicken Little doesn't come to town, we'll be open in 16 months," said Bill Robinson, the founder of Corrections Concepts Inc., a Dallas nonprofit prison ministry that is spearheading the project. ....
Robinson, himself an ex-con and prison minister, said he had been working for years on the idea of an all-Christian prison, and he had invested $1.3 million so far on construction plans and other expenses.
He said a lot of prisons have faith-based or Christian units, but he knows of none with an all-Christian staff.
"The staff, being all born-again believers, will see this as a mission," he said.
"They don't have to go to church, or Bible study, but they have to participate in the curriculum, which is Christ-centered," Robinson said.
He possesses legal opinions that say that as a religious organization, the prison will be able to hire only people of like faith, he said.
Actually, I'm for all-Christian prisons, and I think we should start by jailing the Bush and Obama administrations.
