Judge Orders Racist White Man To Attend Black Church
<snip>

CINCINNATI -- A judge has sentenced a suburban Cincinnati man to attend services for six weeks at a black church for threatening to punch a black cab driver and using racial slurs.

Judge William Mallory Jr. told 36-year-old Brett Haines, "It seems readily apparent to me that you don't like black people. That's OK with me. But you have to understand that you are at the whim and authority of a black judge."

Mallory let Haines choose between attending the black church for six Sundays or spending 30 days in jail. Haines said he'd try the church, although he doesn't usually worship on Sunday.

Mallory offered Haines the choice Friday after Haines was convicted of disorderly conduct. He was arrested in November after threatening cab driver David Wilson and Wilson's wife.

Mallory said he was concerned about maintaining the separation between church and state, so the judge asked Haines whether the option would offend him.

1. Just attending?
How about volunteering for the 30 days instead of just going to church. After all this fool could nod off during the sermon and not absorb anything just like some of the regulars....

5. Is the church forced to take him?
If so, they're being forced to accept a racist criminal.

If not, are there security measures? What will happen if this wacko decides to harass members of the church?
