Sorry, not Christ-centered enough

Just in case you didn't think the right-wing was trying to turn this country into a theocracy, a judge has banned a family from sharing their religion with their son:

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.

So obviously unconstitutional. Yet so very predictable.
