Freedom of Religion

This country is violating its founding principles left and right these days. Eliminate the filibuster! Don't count the votes! Don't let the husband decide what's best for his incapacitated wife! Well, here's the topper - a judge in Indiana has decided which religions you can follow and which you cannot.

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.
So now are you scared? What, because it's Wicca it's ok? How about when it's Islam? Will that be ok? How about Judaism? Where are you willing to draw the line and call it unacceptable?
