Parents, A Teen, and Religious School

It's too bad when parents can't agree on something so basic.

Oldham County family court Judge Tim Feeley said in a ruling published Monday that 14-year-old Michael Ryan can attend St. Xavier High School because that's where he wants to go.

His divorced parents disagreed over whether their son should go to the religious school, which his mother Susan Bisig wanted.

Isn't it strange how the father is concerned about his son being brainwashed by going to a religious school, but has no qualms about the type of stuff that passes for factual in some public schools? At 14, a kid should have a good idea about whether a school fits or not. And the kid is the one who has to make the grade, not the parent. While the Dad complains about his atheist sensibilities being wounded, I have a feeling he's more concerned about the judge making him pay the tuition.

Oldham County, used to be one of the wealthiest counties in the US, and full of nutty people (more politely known as eccentrics). We took quite a few jobs out there because they paid well, and because there would always be good stories about the nutjobs.
