Actually he recited part of the Bible. If I were in a similar situation, and my lawyer were to say that I was an active member of the Humanists of America, would the judge take it easy on me? If not, is the judge committing unethical, discriminatory behavior, by giving breaks to people whose religious beliefs are probably closer to his own? For the lawyers and lawyers-in-training on the board, what types of things can (and cannot) a judge take into consideration in situations like this? How subjective are these decisions?
