“Those who serve in government are not disqualified from having religious beliefs and exercising their religious beliefs in ways that are protected by law,” said Suzii Paynter, executive coordinator of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

The Arkansas Supreme Court has barred Griffen from hearing any cases relating to the death penalty or the lethal injection protocol. He is under investigation by the state Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission. Some lawmakers have called for his impeachment.

Ed; Another example of why I am proud to be a supporter of CBF. Judge Griffen has long been one of us. https://cbfblog.com/2013/10/28/new-mill ... nity-in-un
