Bernard Pritchard, a prison inmate at the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility in Las Cruces, N.M., is claiming he is being discriminated against.
He says he is not being afforded the necessary means to practice his religion of Satanism and is suing to secure that, according to KRQE-TV and The Santa Fe Reporter.
In 2009, Herbert and Catherine Schaible lost their 2-year-old son, Kent, to bacterial pneumonia—a condition they refused to let a doctor treat, insisting on using only prayer to heal him. Last week, their second son died. He, too, failed to receive any potentially life-saving medical care.
