Judge: Enough with the paganism

How pathetic is this? A judge in Indiana has prohibited the divorced parents of a 9-year-old boy from exposing him to their "non-mainstream" Wiccan religion.

You could almost see it if somebody was complaining, or if one parent was trying to limit the other parent's rights. But their religon is one of the things on which the divorcing parents agree. This was nothing more than a judge simply not getting it.

But no worries. This will work out over time. People think paganism is weird and creepy and that's going to change slowly. As much as you'd like to see discrimination reversed overnight, it just doesn't work that way.

Fortunately, Taoism has better PR...
