Religious bigotry

Found this at Republic of T. The story comes from Indystar.com

A judge in Indiana ruled that a divorcing Wiccan couple could not raise their son in their religion. He referred to it as “non-mainstream religious beliefs and rituals”. The kid attends a catholic school and that is part of the judge’s justification.

    “There is a discrepancy between Ms. Jones and Mr. Jones’ lifestyle and the belief system adhered to by the parochial school. . . . Ms. Jones and Mr. Jones display little insight into the confusion these divergent belief systems will have upon (the boy) as he ages,”

Ok, if that is so important why not make them change schools instead of rejecting their freedom of religion? If it is so important, why not order all the kids being raised as fundamentalist Christians but attending schools that teach evolution to abandon their Christian studies? That would solve the whole teaching creationism vs. teaching evolution debate.

    I am more than a little peturbed at the judges ruling. My wife is an American citizen and I was told that you were the country of the free!
    I have been reading a book by Margot Alder and the way she presents the Pagan religions, you would think that it’s becoming a more mainstream way of life
