Wonderful; this local story is making national political websites. Now we look like total hillbillies in front of all of America. Thanks, bigots. Indianapolis judge, prevents parents from teaching their religion to their children. Just to be clear; the divorced couple are both Wiccans and both want their kid taught their religion, it’s just the judge preventing it. So I guess getting a divorce in Indiana entitles the courts to dictate how to live your life.
An Indianapolis father is appealing a Marion County judge’s unusual order that prohibits him and his ex-wife from exposing their child to “non-mainstream religious beliefs and rituals.”
The parents practice Wicca, a contemporary pagan religion that emphasizes a balance in nature and reverence for the earth.
Cale J. Bradford, chief judge of the Marion Superior Court, kept the unusual provision in the couple’s divorce decree last year over their fierce objections, court records show. The order does not define a mainstream religion.
