If you're going to stir up "freedom of religion" trouble in prison, go all the way

Love it:

An inmate is suing the Utah Department of Corrections for denying him his right to practice an ancient Nordic religion while behind bars. [...]

In the lawsuit, Polk says he has been a member of the Asatru faith since 2005, and in order to properly practice it he needs items including: a Thor's Hammer, a prayer cloth, a Mead Horn used for drinking Wassail, a drum made of wood and boar skin, a rune staff and a sword.

We call this a free country and our prisoners can't even have Mead Horns and rune staffs?!
