Supreme Court stays execution of Buddhist inmate to provide religious advisor

Buddhist inmate wants a religious advisor to be present at his execution. The Supreme Court agreed because his request is considered protected under the first amendment, giving citizens the right to the freedom of religion. The execution has been delayed, so one can be provided. Other inmates have been denied this right, because their requests were not submitted in a timely manner.

He didn’t afford this mercy to his victim so why afford him the same mercy he denied.

I have never been able to understand, after reading the Book of Buddha, how Buddhism even became a religion.

I don't understand why it needs to be such a big deal to have some religious adviser in the room.

The only thing he should be allowed is anything he wants for his last meal.
