NH court: sex offender can't attend church

Hummm, I'm not so sure their decision is correct.
9-17-2010 New Hampshire:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ” The New Hampshire Supreme Court has denied a sex offender's request that he be allowed to go to church with a chaperone.

Jonathan Perfetto of Manchester was convicted in 2002 of possessing child pornography. Though a condition of his release is that he have no contact with children, he had asked to attend Jehovah's Witnesses services chaperoned by a church elder.

The state Supreme Court on Friday agreed with a lower court ruling denying that request. It said the probation condition does not violate Perfetto's constitutional rights to religious freedom and that Perfetto can still practice his religion in other ways.

Perfetto also served time when he was 17 for molesting a young male relative and again when he was older for assaulting adult women. ..Source.. by NewsOK

I have been asked politely not to attend three different churches since my release. I think Jews are worse than Christians in this respect. Jews are terrified of what outsiders think of them and seem to go to extreme hypocritical lengths to avoid allowing a convicted child molester to attend services "in case someone should find out."

Yea, "assholes" and this is just another reason why the religious right is so despised by the true moral majority.
