I have no words.

And it doesn't matter. Jeff will have enough words for both of us.

Think about this carefully, folks. Very carefully. How would you feel if a judge told you that you were under a court order forbidding you to expose your children to your religious beliefs?

Hopefully this will be overturned quickly, and the judge disbarred or whatever it is they do to throw judges out on their nether parts. Maybe he can be replaced with a judge who has heard of that First Amendment thing.

I never drink during the day (unless someone invites me out to a nice lunch, and someone else keeps my kids ... sound good, anyone?), but this might have to be a beer lunch.

Hat tip to Chris.

::fume, fume:: That's the steam coming out of my ears. And anything I'd have to say wouldn't be fit for family viewing. *ptoo*

This personally scares the crap out of me. One of my worst fears when my daughter was born was my MIL calling CPS because we had pagan parafernalia (tarot cards, various books, and art). I realized later on that I had no worries about that, I was just paranoid and what could CPS do anyway? Now this. I should feel disgusted, but really I'm too fearful to notice.

Oh my god! (This is one of those times when I think I get to use it, lol)

This is unspeakable.

Steph, this is horrible. What scares me so much (and right now I'm on a hard-core Libertarian Crusade) about this is that the people who are "currently" on the "right" side of "mainstream" think it's so hunky-dory, and they don't have the sense the Almighty gave a gnat to realize that a beast that big is going to run out of food and turn on those who believe they are the masters. This can't go well for anyone - not today, not tomorrow.

But I can't say I'm surprised. People think the gov't's role is to satisfy their every whim, no matter how selfish or near-sighted or assinine those whims are. I hope that judge gets the boot. I hope that family can retain their actual, no-kidding Rights. *sigh* Thanks for the links.
