Today's Sermon: What Would YOU Do?
If you were the judge, what would you do?
Satanist father and Christian mother fight for Sunday morning custody rights
By Tom Leonard in New York
A custody battle between a Satanist and his Christian ex-wife has raised constitutional issues after both demanded the right to share their religion with their three young children.
Kristie Meyer has cited the religious beliefs of her former husband, Jamie, as the main reason why an Indiana judge should restrict his visitation rights.
She wants the three to go to church on Sunday mornings - technically, when they are with Mr Meyer - but points out they are unlikely to do so if they are with their father, a member of an organisation calling itself the Church of Satan.
However, legal experts have warned that the American Constitution prevents judges from showing a religious preference.
Go forth today and ponder the predicament of the judge.
'Tis a puzzlement, indeed.
What would you do? Deny the father's religious rights in favor of the mother's?
Dictate the children's religious options?
Or follow the law of the land and leave the religious bickering to the parents?
Hey, it's not like religious differences between religions, denominations, and sects haven't colored divorce proceedings before.
Think about it.
Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:
Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
