Judge Ignores Religious Freedom

Get this load of happy crappy.

Seems a couple in Indiana got divorced, and they have joint custody of their 9-year-old son. Seems to be fairly amicable (dunno the reasons, doesn't matter). Both parents are Wiccan...but the judge, with no input from either parent, put a clause in their divorce that prohibits either parent from teaching the child any further Wiccan beliefs.

Yep, that's right: neither parent brought this up, and both objected...but the judge went in the face of Constitutional religious freedom and basic civil liberties, making some crack about "non-mainstream religions" causing "confusion" as the boy ages.

Quite obviously, this is being appealed, and it's hard to imagine this won't get shot down (I mean, come on, religious freedom? Pretty basic stuff, here), but the point is that it happened in the first place, and should not have.

Hell in a hand-basket, kids.
