so just teach him what you want. But tell him don't go spouting it to all his friends, and that's the hard part: you don't want it around his school or the neighborhood but kid's like to talk their interests and how do you muzzle him? so then community and such might start up a hue and cry -
Would you say the same thing if it was christianity this Judge decided to censor?
third- the judge doing it: because he can- they can appeal if they don't agree with the judgement; AND if they feel he's acted wrongly, outside his bounds or against the justice rules, they can get a reputable attorney who's been a judge, and those ex-judge attorneys in their nice partnerships now know everyone and are influential and can get info and favors and everything, then take it to the bar (no not where you get Heineken but the one that controls lawyers and judges): get him censured so he can't rule like that anymore or he's disbarred.
That's one way...not the way I would've gone. But my way would've wound up with me in jail and the Judge dead. It's decisions like this that is the cause for Judges becoming targets today. And if it had been me, I most certainly would've made the Judge a target. Judges are NOT above the law. When they step outside of it, like this moron did, they need to be dealt with.
so beyond that it's a (or practically) moot point - teach him your wicca, keep it on the downlow, and go on about your merry way
That's like saying: "Keep quiet about your being gay." Or "Keep quiet about your being Christian." that just doesn't wash....if they did that we might as well just tear out the First amendment entirely.
