  What is a chaplain? The technical definition is “a member of the clergy…a person chosen to conduct religious exercises.” (Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary) If you ask most people how they define what a chaplain is, chances are you will receive positive feedback. People tend to consider them men of God who are ready and able to provide spiritual counsel and religious instruction. The last thing you would expect from a chaplain would be for them to ignore your pleas for spiritual assistance, to refuse you religious instruction, and definitely not to discriminate based upon race or religious preference. However, if you ask inmates inside the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC) to describe most prison chaplains, you’ll likely get an eye-roll, a snicker and a quick unfavorable opinion. Inmates will tell you that, if anything, ADC chaplains, in conjunction with ADC policy, discourage inmates from observing their religion AND they discriminate in ways that are not only extremely offensive, but are also unlawful.
