Father cannot discuss religion

Law prof Volokh writes:
In December, a New York appellate court held that Daniel should be allowed supervised visitation after his parole expires this summer. But the court also upheld, in the name of "the best interest of the children," the trial court's order that Daniel not discuss with the children "any issues pertaining to his religion." ...
The father may be a Mohammedan kook, but the judge is still overextending his authority when he prohibits a man from discussing his religion.

Nice blog, I liked it a lot except it's such a sad thing to like.

I'm in the UK but I know a couple of CA fathers but these are international cases. My daughter was taken from the UK to the US when she was 11 months and I'm still trying to get matters resolved - we're now dealing with this mess in Florida.

Anyway, I just wanted to say I thought you have a good blog and keep me updated please - add me to your subscriber list karlhindle at aol dot com

Thanks
