Legal News with Benjamin and Aronson

 

Most of the time we speak on the First Amendment as it relates to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression, or delve into the political world. We talk about upcoming elections or the results of the last one, and news about what could have been, what should have been,or the horrors of what is. Very rarely do we speak on the First Amendment in relation toreligious freedoms.
Of course there is a First Amendment that protects religious freedoms, but there is also the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which also guarantees a person’s right to act in accord with their religious conscious. Some of you may recall that this Act, or State Acts patterned after it, are responsible for the Hobby Lobby case, in which Hobby Lobby was free to avoid providing birth control types of insurance coverage under Obamacare, as it went against their religious beliefs. (Some may have a little different take on the essence of HobbyLobby, but this brief analysis will suffice for the purpose of this discussion).
This law, along with arguing that the First Amendment Freedom of Religion, also has been used for cake bakers in Indiana to claim that they have a right to discriminate against gay marriages and therefore, not provide services at weddings. Taken to the extreme, a gay couple could travel through some southern state and run out of gas, as no filling station would be willing to provide them with gas on their honeymoon, because it went against their religion. As we said, these are arguments under RFRA and the First Amendment that certainly have not been universally accepted.
However, this brings up an interesting question under Florida law, and most probably at least another third to half of the other states in the country. In those states that still have the death penalty, and certainly in Florida and probably most states, one can be excluded from the jury because they are unable to impose the death penalty upon a finding of guilt. The essence is that the death penalty in those states is lawful and therefore, if a juror cannot follow the law under any circumstance, then they must be excluded. Yet, how does that not violate RFRA and the First Amendment Freedom of Religion? These people have as much right as anybody to sit on a jury, even a capital case with the death penalty. But because of their religious conviction, that their religion would not allow them to impose the death penalty, they become excluded from the jury. By their devotion to their religion they are being denied the most fundamental of rights, that being the ability to serve on a jury equal to all other citizens.
In most cases, that juror is more than happy to be excluded from the jury. The pressure of a capital trial might be overwhelming. The time away from a job or other commitments could be overwhelming. Most people would rather do anything other than being on jury duty. So, there are very few complaints by the prospective juror and by and large they do not even know that this is the reason for their exclusion.
On the other hand, a defendant in any trial has the right to be judged by a jury of their peers. Part of the peers is a cross section of the community and those who have religious convictions that tell them that they cannot impose death upon another human being, are part of that community. Aren’t they entitled to have an entire cross section of the community serve on their jury, as opposed to one that is devoid of a certain segment of the population, simply based upon their religious views?
We do not expect that this article will start any type of movement. Rather, the purpose of this article is simply to show how different aspects of the law effect other aspects of the law. How Freedom of Religion and RFRA have not yet affected those who sit on a jury, butmaybe they should. That strengthening laws for religious freedom might actually affect, at some time in the future, the composition of a simple jury trial. How a well-meaning law to protect people’s religious liberty might end with a stalled car in Alabama. How a law to protect an individual’s long-held religious feelings might impinge on others freedom of movement or making them feel that they have less rights than others.
The real question becomes, when do religious freedoms conflict with other peoples’ rights to the extent that the religious freedoms must take a back seat? Or, conversely, do theyever? When does somebody’s right to the pursuit of happiness take a backseat to somebody’s pursuit, making them unhappy in the name of religion?
We do not have the answers to any of the questions, or at least a great majority of them asked herein. Our country is getting more and more polarized. There are more people then ever following religious doctrine and there are more people then ever disavowing the same. The law will go through a tug of war to balance these interests. There is a good reason why your parents always tell you, at holidays with large groups of people, never to discuss politics and religion, and that is because these two subjects are incredibly sensitive and it is hard not to offend someone in the discussion. The same is true with laws that affect religion or are based upon religion. They are bound to offend someone. No matter what we do, that will be the end result.

 

Erica Icon The Rub April Edition

Brett Rossi directed her very first film for Deviant Films. It’s an all-girl flick called Brett Rossi’s Girl Crushed and it stars Brett, Lyra Law, Maddy O’Reilly, Abigail Mac, AJ Applegate, Tia Cyrus, Alix Lynx, and Karlee Grey. The DVD will be out at the beginning of this month. You can also see Brett in Wicked Pictures’ Friends & Lovers, a feature film by Mike Quasar, which deals with the question can friends also be lovers.

Spicy Latina Nikki Delano has two feature shows this month. On April 22nd, she will be hitting the stage at Déjà Vu in Tijuana Mexico. And on April 29th, she will be returning to Sapphire’s newest NYC club, Sapphire 39 Midtown located at 20 West 39th Street.

Fans of blonde bombshell Sarah Vandella who live in the Denver area are extremely lucky. She will be appearing at Exxxotica and signing for Porn Star Tweet/Candy booth March 31st through April 2nd. Fans can take a picture with Ms. Throated 2016 and buy her exclusive merchandise, which she will personally sign. More info about the event can be found at http://co.exxxoticaexpo.com/. If you can’t make it to Denver, you can still spend some quality time with her. Take her home with you and pick up Zero Tolerance’s Make My Wife Squirt—she even scored the cover and is looking very bootylicious. You can also see the oral queen in Elegant Angel’s Buttwoman vs. Buttwoman and Sweetheart Video’s Prison Lesbians Vol. 5 and ArchAngel’s The Booty Movie 5

Savana Styles will be launching her new studio Alpha Females soon. The first title will be The Riders and will star Savana, along with Adriana Chechik, Romi Rain, Briana Banks, Derrick Pierce, Charles Dera, Xander Corvus, Mick Blue and Marcus Dupree. The movie will have a Wild West theme and feature women taking charge with men and getting a little help from a female friend. Also look for her as a hot soccer mom who likes anal in Evil Angel’s Anal Soccer Mom #2.

Karen Fisher is premiering her own DVD line, American Honey, that will be distributed through Third World Media. The first title is Mom’s Dirty Laundry and has a smoking hot topless photo of Karen on it. The scenes on all the titles will showcase Karen, along with some of the top names in adult. Mom’s Dirty Laundry will street in the middle of this month.

And ArchAngel has something pretty spectacular going on this month. They will be releasing The Booty Queen 3 on April 7th, which will feature the reigning Booty Queen, Kendra Lust, along with former Booty Queens Jada Stevens and AJ Applegate and the infamous Riley Reid. The three Booty Queens do a very hot all-girl scene and Riley joins Kendra for a three-way G/G/B scene. But the most amazing part of the movie is that it features Kendra’s very first DP…ever! Top-name male talent Mick Blue and Markus Dupree are along for the wild ride and it will be a scene everyone will be talking about for some time. This is Kendra’s first showcase film of 2017 and a definite must-have. ArchAngel will also be releasing Beautiful Tits 4 later this month.
