A provocative new study is challenging assumptions about the deterrent effect of religion on criminal behaviour.
The U.S. study found that through “purposeful distortion or genuine ignorance,” hardcore criminals often co-opt religious doctrine to justify or further their crimes.
The findings could have important implications, the researchers say, for how faith-based services are administered within the corrections system.
Prison ministries shouldn’t just be about presenting religious doctrine because some inmates might take religious teachings to excuse their behaviour, lead author Volkan Topalli, a criminal justice professor at Georgia State University, said in an interview Monday.
“People have to understand that presenting religious doctrine to people isn’t enough to change their behaviour,” he said. “(Faith-based services) have to be systematic and about behaviour change — religion has to be a vehicle, rather than the goal.”
The research of Topalli and his colleagues was published this month in the journal Theoretical Criminology in an article titled With God on My Side: The Paradoxical Relationship Between Religious Belief and Criminality Among Hardcore Street Offenders.
They interviewed 48 people who were actively involved in serious and violent street-level crimes, including drug dealing, robbery, car jacking and burglary.
Almost all of them professed a belief in God and identified with the Christian faith. However, many of the criminals had an incomplete understanding of the rules and expectations of their faith, the study found.
One 33-year-old criminal, identified in the study by the nickname “Triggerman,” refused to accept the suggestion that a consequence of murder was eternal damnation.
“No, no, no, I don’t think that is right,” he told the researchers. “Anything can be forgiven. We live in Hell now and you can do anything in Hell. … God has to forgive everyone, even if they don’t believe in him.”
Another criminal, 47-year-old “Detroit,” told researchers that “there is a Heaven and there is a Hell, but I believe that it is Hell on earth, and we trying to fight to get (to Heaven). … We already in Hell, you know?”
Other interview subjects tended to manipulate religious doctrine or were selective in which principles they adhered to, the study found. One 23-year-old criminal, nicknamed “Young Stunna,” said those who came from disadvantaged backgrounds were excused from committing crimes.
“See, if I go and rob a [expletive], then I’m still going to Heaven because, umm, it’s like Jesus knows I ain’t have no choice, you know?” he told researchers. “He know I got a decent heart. He know I’m stuck in the ‘hood and just doing what I gotta do to survive.”
A 25-year-old criminal nicknamed “Cool” said he always does a “quick little prayer” before committing a crime in order to “stay cool with Jesus.” As long as you ask for forgiveness, Jesus has to give it to you, he said.
He also suggested that if a crime is committed against another “bad person,” such as a dope dealer or child molester, “then it don’t count against me because it’s like I’m giving punishment to them for Jesus.”
The interviews show that criminals will often employ “elaborate and creative rationalizations” to reconcile their belief in God and their serial offending, the researchers concluded.
They suggested that those who run faith-based programs in prisons could play a role in trying to correct some of the distortions or misunderstandings.
However, that’s not to suggest that these programs should be all about “hellfire and brimstone” because that would just turn inmates off, Topalli said Monday.
Instead, religion should be a “subtle, background, authoritative force” for making change, he said, adding that faith-based programs work best in reducing recidivism when done in conjunction with educational, vocational and life-skills training.
Representatives of the Interfaith Committee on Chaplaincy, whose members provide support to federal inmates across Canada, could not be reached for comment Monday.
A 2007 report posted on the Correctional Service of Canada website noted that about 15 to 20 per cent of federal inmates regularly attend religious worship services and expressed a “high level” of satisfaction with services offered.
The study said while a key function of chaplains was to provide religious services, some were also providing more “holistic” services, including personal development and money management training, which complemented inmates’ overall correctional plans.

GATORGAIT Update (11/12/2012) – Hackers strike PdfCast.org as the truthful and damning scandal-focused report circulates the USA!Hackers strike PdfCast.org as the truthful and damning scandal-focused report pertaining to GATORGAIT rightfully circulates the USA! See the image displayed above, be sure to fully expand it (the image is 1024 pix x 768 pix when fully expanded and its primary components are clear and legible when fully expanded). The criminal cabal extending from Florida to California is in peril and those who are already in possession of the comprehensive and illustrated report know that page 3 of the very same report forewarned of hacking. Again, share the report and the instructions pertaining to the entertaining and informative poem with everyone (remember the consent on page 197). Again, all followers should read the informative poem (on pages 183-185) before proceeding beyond page 4 and all followers should remember the KeepandShare.com unnecessary censorship when they get to page 88. It’s time for the criminals to meet the inside of the prison cells in which they belong. Again, the epic scandal that is Gatorgait involves Florida’s governor Rick Scott, Google, UF’s “pending resigned” Bernie Machen and many-many more (several of the other entities have also been named in the recently released materials). We urge the public and law-abiding public servants to support PdfCast.org any legal way possible as the company valiantly fights against criminals to both uphold “free speech” and bring the public the truth…the truth that will lead to the criminal convictions that are so very deserved.
Variant of a relevant excerpt from a truthful comment that has been posted elsewhere:
“There is a lot going on that the general public is unaware of. And it’s all very disturbing. People need to keep a close eye on Florida and its leadership (both during this election period and after it). Not to state the obvious, but there are some things that aren't right in the Sunshine State. Below is a variant of a message that was shared previously, but it is fitting that I share it here. However, I’ll add a couple points first. What has been publicized widespread over the course of the last several months is that Gov. Scott did not campaign with candidate Romney during Romney’s campaign visits to Florida. Again, that is what has been trumpeted to the public for several months. Now suddenly, literally within days of the 10/27/12 release of a true and damning corruption-exposing report that references ‘plausible deniability’ [Note: the corruption has actually impacted Florida’s / the nation’s 2012 election process…that’s an undeniable fact as you’ll clearly see if you opt to follow the below directions], the following things occur:
(1) A video featuring photos of Gov. Scott shaking candidate Romney’s hand on August 13th pops up on or about 10/31/12 [of course the Medicare fraud was referenced in the video…we’ve already exposed the bad actors’ reliance on positive p.r. and spin so that is largely no longer a viable bail out tactic].
(2) Gov. Scott visits one or more Romney Florida campaign volunteer sites.
And now this…
(3) The relatively unpopular governor (and many would say that’s putting it mildly) shows up to a Florida event for candidate Romney on the last day before the election. Presumably the precise time when candidate Romney would want to be viewed most favorably; and thus would presumably want distance between himself and Gov. Scott.
[This bracketed segment was not on the m#########s.com comment. In further support of the implication made by the previous three points addressing post-10/27/12 activity, Rick Scott’s presence at the 11/5/12 Sanford (i.e. the home of theTrayvon Martin tragedy and the resultant fallout) campaign event likely was truly not desired by candidate Romney (or Rick Scott for that matter). But when things are looking bad for people sometimes they have to do things that they’d rather not do…things such as eliminate the previously fostered impression that there is distance between Scott and Romney.]
Those of us that are ‘in the know’ see through all of the chicanery. The public should be keeping their eyes peeled…way-way-way peeled. Follow the instructions in the below message, and in the message to which it refers. I promise you that the truth will alarm you. That is unless all of the Florida issues have left you jaded to the point of no return...that would be understandable.
If people only knew the half. The ‘bottom content’ at the current-dot-com link displayed below is a variant of an email that was shared with various members of the media (and other parties likely to take an interest in this issue) beginning at the start of the week. This is not a joke. There is likely way-way-way-way-way more to this (i.e. the subject matter addressed in the article) than initially meets the eye. Those who seek the truth would be wise to visit the link current-dot-com/community/93943807_epic-2012-election-impacting-scandal-amongst-casualties-florida-s-gov-rick-scott-google-part-1-of-2-dot-htm and read all of the content...and follow the instructions. Truth seekers will be glad they did. Those ‘in the know’ know that there is much afoul in the air. Those who are following this story, and opt to follow my suggestion, will likely be particularly interested in the line of the poem that addresses pages 6-8, 54-57, 165, and 160-162 (especially 165 and 160-162). To those that decide to seek the truth...happy hunting!
One last thing, the photos in the Priorities USA video are interesting. It has been relatively widely reported that Gov. Scott and candidate Romney haven’t yet campaigned together in Florida. For reference see the second to last sentence of the story at the url http://www.realclearpolitics.com/2012/10/07/confident_romney_rallies_thousands_in_florida_292344.html .”
Additional information that might ultimately prove to be extremely relevant:
It is an undeniable fact that Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi endorsed Mitt Romney during his presidential campaign. The following quote (paraphrased) has been attributed to Ms. Bondi – “Mitt Romney has the vision and experience necessary to turn our economy around and restore prosperity to our nation...(he) will bring principled leadership and conservative values to the White House, and I am honored to support his candidacy for President.” [See http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/the-buzz-florida-politics/content/pam-bondi-endorses-romney ]
The most important documentation to review is the report/supplement titled “Gatorgait – Epic Public Corruption in 2012” along with the associated 1-page diagram. Again, those items can be obtained via the links http://pdfcast.org/pdf/epic-bicoastal-public-corruption-in-2012 and http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/707/gatorgaitadiagram.jpg/ , respectively. Again, follow the instructions that are in the “s.b. posted comments” at PdfCast.org…currently there are three comments.

Gatorgait Update: KeepandShare.com engages in unnecessary censorship and in doing so the company, in effect, aids the criminal co-conspirators!The above image is 1024 pix x 768 pix when fully expanded.
UPDATE (11/12/2012): See http://current.com/technology/93960499_gatorgait-update-11-12-2012-hackers-strike-pdfcast-org-as-the-truthful-and-damning-scandal-focused-report-circulates-the-usa.htm
This is to inform all citizens that KeepandShare.com of San Francisco (CA) recently, without providing any warning, inexplicably closed the account of justice seekers diligently engaged in an effort to annihilate the epic scandal that is Gatorgait. To see content related to the company’s censorship visit the link http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/5/kandscensorship.jpg/ . Gatorgait is a far-reaching scandal that has adversely impacted numerous people and things including, but not limited to, Florida’s / the nation’s 2012 election process…this is an undeniable fact. The content that has been censored is a customized and high caliber 14 image slide show that evidences critical information. Prior to its unwarranted removal the slide show was hosted at the link http://www.keepandshare.com/photo/438974/gatorgait-google-cache-test-samples?i=2309184 . The slide show is referenced on pages 88 and 93 of the truthful, lawful, damning, and illustrated 197 page report titled “Gatorgait – Epic Public Corruption in 2012”. That report is hosted at the link http://pdfcast.org/pdf/epic-bicoastal-public-corruption-in-2012 . For the record, though damning itself, the content that has been censored by KeepandShare.com is (just as all of the other extensive content that has previously been placed online by and on the behalf of the justice seekers) also truthful and lawful. This behavior is in line with previous behaviors exhibited by saboteurs presumably amongst the co-conspirators. In fact, merely days ago the initial Gatorgait content hosted on ImageShack-dot-com was vandalized in a significant manner by one or more parties. However, in that instance it is assumed that the vandalization was carried out at the hands of hackers associated with the desperate criminal co-conspirators for ImageShack-dot-com acted honorably and replaced the vandalized content literally within minutes of receiving notification. To date KeepandShare.com has chosen to ignore requests to (1) reactivate the account and (2) return the slide show content to its prior location and prior form. Unfortunately, unlike ImageShack-dot-com, KeepandShare.com has opted to not “take the high road”.
Businesses that engage in this type of activity have no place in society…especially American society which places civil liberties on a pedestal. This type of behavior is arguably a proximal cause of corruption running rampant not only in America, but the rest of the world as well.
For beneficial information pertaining to the report hosted at the above referenced PDFCast-dot-com url visit the link http://current.com/community/93943807_epic-2012-election-impacting-scandal-amongst-casualties-florida-s-gov-rick-scott-google-part-1-of-2.htm . Be sure to follow all of the directions for a truly eye-opening experience.
It is an absolute fact that one or more proven criminally-corrupt public officials is still involved in Florida’s / the nation’s 2012 election process at the time of this report. David P. Kreider is at least one of those one or more criminally-corrupt officials that has been deliberately entangled in the election process by various leaders within the state of Florida. David P. Kreider has repeatedly been formally brought to the attention of various appropriate entities within Florida. Unfortunately none of them have enforced the removal of the proven-criminal from one of the state’s and the nation’s most sacred processes. The Office of the Attorney General of Florida is also an entity that has been formally informed of this serious issue. As the 197 page report clearly evidences there are several substantial criminal co-conspirators—even some far-removed from Florida—attempting to execute one or more significant and illicit plots. Everything stated in this addendum is both undeniable fact and inexcusable. Again, all of this is in reference to Gatorgait.

I honestly believe the only reason Romney wants to be president is so that he can sell America to the highest bidder (think China or Japan) -- pocket the trillions that would bring him -- and leave the 'bill' to all us peons. If you think I'm wrong read this article in its entirety, and then argue your viewpoint.
Few individuals or organizations have been as influential as Mitt Romney and Bain Capital in worsening our runaway healthcare costs, causing unnecessary suffering, or accelerating our government's long-term deficit problem. Their highly leveraged investment strategy puts healthcare companies under enormous pressure to increase revenue. They often respond by overbilling -- or worse, by encouraging unnecessary medical treatments that can include anything from non-invasive tests to heart surgery.
I spent many years working in healthcare economics: running health service companies, projecting health plan costs for governments and employers, and analyzing healthcare investments. I've reviewed hospital bills in detail and seen shocking things: Thousands of dollars for bandages and gauze during a surgery; a 12,000-percent markup on ointments; a $250 charge for the lightbulb in a projector the hospital claimed was used during surgery.
I've seen hucksters put red filters over an ordinary flashlight, call it an "infrared" healing device, and charge insurance companies or hapless patients for their use. And I've seen hundreds of cases of human tragedy brought on by unnecessary surgeries performed solely for money. I can't say I was always on the side of the angels, but I can say this: Before Bain, I had never seen behavior that was as consistently bad as we're seeing today.
Mitt Romney and Bain Capital paved the way for other investors in healthcare. Their greed has caused explosive growth in a cost and overtreatment spiral that's threatening Medicare, our healthcare system, and arguably -- us.
The Important Part
Consider the story of Bain Capital and Duane Reade. Bain purchased the drugstore chain and hired a CEO who was later convicted of investor fraud, while the chain itself was selling out-of-date drugs and baby formula to its customers.
Duane Reade's story is not unlike that of Damon International, whose Bain-anointed CEO was convicted for tricking doctors into ordering unnecessary procedures and billing them (ironically enough) to Medicare. Apparently Romney and Bain had an eye for healthcare talent: an evil eye.
But even that isn't the biggest part of the story. This is: Mitt Romney and Bain Capital were among the first to to engage in the kinds of highly leveraged buyouts of private healthcare companies that pressures them to overtreat patients and overbill payers just to satisfy their investors.
Let's add another name to the list of predatory Romney companies: Dade International. No laws were broken in the management of this medical equipment company, although Bain and Romney certainly milked bankruptcy laws for all they were worth.
Most of the publicity around the Dade acquisition centers around Romney and Bain's management: the loss of 1,700 jobs, the cuts to 401(k) and other benefit plans, the ruthless bilking of the company for massive fees to Bain -- which was essentially Romney & Co. --overpaying for work they assigned to themselves, and using investors' money to do it.
Here's the other side of the Dade International deal: Romney and Bain borrowed massively to acquire Dade with other people's money. In order to show returns for their investors, Dade had to grow quickly and aggressively. So Romney & Co. directed Dade to borrow even more so it could acquire some of its competitors.
Eventually Romney and Bain pressured Dade to borrow even more so that it could buy them out. It eventually did, a few months after the February 1999 date that Romney told ABC News marked his retirement as Bain CEO. But papers filed with the SEC continued to list him as both CEO and sole shareholder for nearly three years. If those statements are false it could be grounds for fraud charges, since it is illegal to knowingly file false information with the SEC. If they're true, Romney remained closely involved with the Dade deal.
