Atheist Sues To Prevent Son From Attending Catholic School

Is he really an atheist, or just a cheapskate?
LA GRANGE, Ky. -- A father is in a courtroom battle, trying to keep his son from attending a Catholic high school.

The parents involved in this case are divorced. David Ryan, the father, is an atheist. The mother is a Roman Catholic. Their son, who is in the eighth grade, attends a Catholic school in Oldham County.

... when Ryan and his wife got divorced, a judge ordered their son continue attending a Catholic school.

But Ryan is an atheist and wants his son to attend a public high school next year, so Friday, he took the issue in front of a judge in an Oldham County courtroom.

According to court documents, Ryan believes if his son continues to attend a religious school, it will attempt to indoctrinate his son into a belief system that he as a parent rejects.

“A view that the world operates in conformity with supernatural forces and not with natural laws,” Kagin said.
[ED.: Yeah, Catholicism has absolutely nothing to say about Natural Law.]

My Comments:
I call B.S. I think the dad just doesn't want to have to continue to pay his share of the kid's tuition.

Fortunately, the courts usually defer to the mother's wishes. Courts also assume that remaining in the same school is usually in the best interests of the child.

I agree with you regarding the tuition costs. Although his legal fee's are probably much higher!
