Dad May Be Jailed For Taking Daughter To Church


After Joseph Reyes baptized his 3-year-old daughter against his Jewish ex-wife’s wishes, a court forbid him from exposing her to Catholicism-but he still took her to church. Reyes explained on GMA, “Catholicism falls right under the umbrella of Judaism.”

A court is scheduled to rule today on whether or not Reyes violated the temporary restraining order barring him from “exposing his daughter to any other religion than the Jewish religion” for 30 days. While the restraining order is highly unusual, Reyes obviously knew he wasn’t supposed to take her to church, even if he was, “taking her to hear the teachings of perhaps the most prominent Jewish rabbi in the history of this great planet of ours.” If religion, not angering his ex, was really his only goal, then why send her pictures of the girl’s baptism and invite a local TV news crew to cover him taking her to church?
