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.(emphasis and editorial commentary added)
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.]
