Father of 'American Taliban' John Walker Lindh 'Proud' of Son's Testimony in Group Prayer Lawsuit

The father of John Walker Lindh, the young American who was captured in Afghanistan after 9/11 and sentenced to prison for aiding the Taliban against U.S. troops, said he is proud of his son for fighting in court today for the right to pray with other Muslim prisoners.

"I was really proud of John," Frank Lindh told ABCNews.com. "Today he did such a good job of explaining the daily prayer. It was a really well informed testimony. It shows how much depth of knowledge he has about Islam."

John Lindh, who pleaded guilty to helping the Taliban and carrying explosives, testified in court today that a prison policy limiting group prayer has forced him to sin.

Lindh, 31, is suing prison officials for the right to pray five times a day with fellow Islamic inmates instead of praying alone in his cell.

"I believe it's obligatory," Lindh said in court, the Associated Press reported. "If you're required to do it in congregation and you don't, then that's a sin."

Lindh is being held in the Communications Management Unit in Terre Haute, Ind., where he is serving a 20-year sentence for supplying services to the Taliban and carrying an explosive during the commission of a felony.

"I am a Muslim and my religion requires that I perform five daily prayers in congregation. This is mandatory and not optional," Lindh wrote in a handwritten complaint to prison officials that was also filed in federal court.

A ban on daily group prayer was instituted in 2007 after Muslim inmates ignored a lockdown caused by a fire alarm, court documents stated.

Father of ‘American Taliban’ John Walker Lindh ‘Proud’ of Son’s Testimony ...

Frank Lindh’s pride for his rat boy son is surely along the lines of the “gay pride” typically on public display during the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade.

Incorrect.

It is considered preferable to perform as a group, but not mandatory (except once each Friday).

I wonder if Johnny's father realizes what the Taliban consider to be the obligatory - and not optional - way to treat someone who adopts Johnny's father's lifestyle.

If he isn't pardoned, he will be freed by the time he is 40 years old.

That is a recipe for disaster.

It has surprised me that he hasn’t already. But, what the hell, the people spoke on November 4,2008 and he[obama] was their choice.

There is NO law that says this dirtbag can’t pray in his cell. So he can Shutup and pray in solitude.

No one will care.

Frank Lindh left his wife and son for another man. His moral compass is so directionless that of course he is proud of his rat boy, who can rot in hell AFAIC.

Well the old man has already proven he only thinks with his small head and that head is screwed up to think Man on Man is the new normal.

No wonder he produced a traitor as the old man is a traitor to real men and to real marriage.

Well, if Father Bin Laden really thought bout his son’s dedication to his version of Islam, he should rightfully be proud of little Osama too, by the Lindh father’s standards.

This was the generation of overpraise for children. So Daddy Lindh is just obeying the Berkeley parenting techniques of the 80s. Find something, anything at all, to praise your son for! Ok, so he got caught fighting his own country and working for the enemy... Practicing terrorism and being a traitor... Surely there is SOMETHING about him you can notice to praise him for that will change him around... Maybe he has nice blue eyes. Maybe he stood up for his brand of Islam in front of a courtroom? There you go, look how brave and logical! GOOD BOY!!!!

Thank you for posting that prayer reminder. I thought of Spann as soon as I saw that animal’s face in the photo.

Prayers up for Spann’s family.

“We continue to clamor for those very qualities we are rendering impossible ... in a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.” - C. S. Lewis

I hope no one finds out, especially his fellow jihadi prisoners, or those on the outside who associate with his father, but the reason he wants group prayer is so he can rat out the other muslims...

Sadly by the time he is 40 years old and gets out he will just be one of hundreds of Muzzie nut jobs walking among us...
