While it's fun to think that all those self-reported Christians in jail/prison are just checking the wrong box and deep down they're atheists, turns out that is far from the case.
Christianity is a popular way that hardcore American criminals and gang members justify their crimes to themselves. They are just as strong believers as the average Christian, and moreso in many cases (no atheists in the foxhole, as Christians like to say). They just do things similar to when someone quotes Leviticus to protest against gays while eating shrimp. That or they take an extreme "god forgives all if you believe" or "only god can judge me" stance giving them essentially a moral blank check. Some criminals pray before committing a criminal act to absolve themselves.
Damn good thing they aren't atheists!
