Outrage, Absolute Outrage... 

Yesterday I went to the mall to do some shopping for my brother's wedding. As I walked through the door I saw an Indy Star paper box and caught the headline, Judge: Parents can't teach pagan beliefs I bought the paper in hopes the title was misleading...It wasn't. Two Wiccans got a divorce, both parents want to raise their child Wiccan, but when the parents got their divorce the judge, Cale J. Bradford, added a clause that prohibits the child's mom and dad from exposeing their child to "non-mainstream religious beliefs and rituals."

What the fuck?! Has the 1st amendment been completely blacked out by the Religious Reich? How could anyone even THINK of doing THIS? The father filed an appeal to the decision back in January...why are we just now hearing about it? I guess I should be thankful we are hearing anything about it at all. This angers me to no end. When will the taking away our Consitutional Rights be stopped? You think it will stop at Wicca? Of course not! If they are allowed to get away with this what is to stop them from attacking Hindus? Then Buddists, then Muslims, (Oh wait, aren't they already doing that?), then the Jews. After all of that, you KNOW they would start in on different Christian sects...After all, an oppessor MUST have someone to actively oppress, it keeps everyone else in line.
