In the Gemorrah there is a case where a gentile slave was made free so he could complete a minyan. true, he had been circumcised already, but who is to say that he was a strict shomer shabbos. so much for anonymous' opinion. Reply

There are opinions that allow for leniency concerning counting someone who is non-shomer Shabbos in a minyan. Reply

Actually that is incorrect regarding the 10 for a minyan The halacha says that someone who is מחלל שבת can not be included in the 10 for a minyan. The can be the 11th and on. Someone who violates the Shabbat is considered worse then a murderer because in the 10 Commandments, Shabbat is higher up in the order then murder. Reply
