UK Prison Service Encourages Paganism

Exporting Imams to Britain suddenly doesn't seem to be such a bad idea. Bear to the Right is linking to some freaky news:
Pagan priests will be allowed to use wine and wands during ceremonies in jails under instructions issued to every prison governor. Inmates practising paganism will be allowed a hoodless robe, incense and a piece of religious jewellery among their personal possessions. They will also be allowed to have Tarot cards but are forbidden from using them to tell the fortunes of other prisoners. The guidance, issued by Michael Spurr, the director of operations of the Prison Service, makes it clear that Skyclad (naked pagan worship) will not be permitted. Prison staff have been told that pagan artefacts should be treated with respect...

As if the inmates weren't messed up already (I presume). God Bless them all.
