In a ruling Thursday, the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a judge who ruled in February 2007 that parents' rights to exercise their religious beliefs are not violated when their children are exposed to contrary ideas in school.
The judges were very impressive, more so than at any other Parker court appearances.
It appeared that these judges had not only read the briefs carefully but had a better knowledge and understanding of the case law involved and some of the pertinent issues than the lawyers! They had also apparently researched the state core curriculum as it applies to this case.
