Joseph’s wife is Rebecca Reyes (Shapiro), and her father is Howard Shapiro, who is an Executive Vice President and General Counsel for Playboy. That’s right, the man who doesn’t want his granddaughter exposed to Christianity, makes his money from pornography!! (Does the word hypocrite come to mind?)I don't think that is hypocritical. A rich Jewish porno lawyer might well want his granddaughter to stay away from Christianity.
The man was interviewed on TV, and here is another story. He appears to be willing to violate the court order by taking his child to church.
My guess is that he is going to get punished for it, but the judge will never admit
that he is punishing the dad for being a Christian. If the Chicago family courts are anything like the ones here in California, the judge will just keeping sending the case out for evaluations until he gets one that recommends sole custody for the mom. Then he will just declare that mom custody is in the best interest of the child (BIOTCh). Usually the corrupt evaluators are smart enough to figure out what the judge wants, and to recommend that outcome without including the unconstitutional reasoning.
A Washington state appeals court just reversed this clause in a court-ordered parenting plan:
As to the mother’s ability to make sole decisions regarding religious upbringing, the court finds that the father does not have a religion, and the mother has brought the children up in the Orthodox Christian religion without objection from the father.No judge has any business making such decisions.
