SubGenius' "Bob" to Judge: Cut Participating Mom Some Slack

|

Reader Joseph sends along this condensed tale of apparent judicial overreach:

A Catholic judge took away from Rachel Bevilacqua custody of
her son (which had previously been granted) based on pictures he saw of her,
taken at a "Church of SubGenius" event called X-Day. The rationale was that,
based on her participation in several pieces of "performance art," she was
insane and unfit to be a mother. The child was, mind you, not present at
this or any other X-Day event.
