Appeals court upholds Wiccan parents

An Indiana appeals court has upheld the right of divorced Wiccan parents to expose their children to their religious practices, something that both parents wished to do.

The Indiana Civil Liberties Union argued the case on constitutional grounds -- that the decree trampled on parents' rights to expose their children to the religion of their choice.

But the appeals court didn't rule on the constitutional question. Instead, the appeals court relied on state law, which prohibits courts from limiting parents' authority unless a child is at risk of physical danger, or significant emotional impairment.
