Custody and Religion, Part 3

An Illinois trial judge has modified the earlier order noted below and decided that, although Dad in the case appears to have engaged in fairly self-centered and obnoxious behavior in regard to parenting issues, (see pages 7 and 8 of the decision) Dad's taking his daughter to church during his custodial time is within his Constitutional rights, in the absence of some showing of true detriment to his child.

A tip of the brown teardrop-crown (Meyer the Hatter, New Orleans) to Religion Clause for the pointer.
