Supreme Court Examines Religion and Prison

The Supreme Court hears arguments on a federal law requiring prisons to accommodate inmates' religious practices. The case involves Ohio prisoners who practice lesser-known religions, including a Wiccan and a Satanist. Ohio says the law is unconstitutional because it gives special treatment to religion and that inmates could use religion as a cover to promote gangs.
