So, if I understand correctly, she lost custody of her children because she insists on ridiculing organized religion?

For the most part, yes. Although I think the official reason probably involves something about how no sane, rational (pink) person could possibly derive any kind of enjoyment or spiritual satisfaction from participating in a Subgenius Devival or other Subgenius activities, so that means that Reverend Magdalen is not sane or rational, and therefore is unfit to raise her child.

I think the point is that she isn't pink. You did kind of a double negative thingamabobber.

It's late and I'm nitpicky. I do, however, grok.

She obviously hasn't learned about that killing "Bob" part, yet.

Is this an actual group of people who assemble together from time to time? I remember in college an experiment that people were randomly asked to participate in, and it seems like the word "subgenius" was involved. The volunteers wore radio recievers on their belts for a week or a month or something and were told to listen to the beeps and clicks and static whenever it was transmitted. I thionk it was supposed to connect their minds to.. something, or nothing. Or it was a joke. Or performance art.

I really have no idea.

What sickens me is the cost involved in all this: $140,000 for her and counting.

That would have paid for a very nice house in most parts of the country, or a deluxe college education for her son.

So much of "justice" today seems to boil down to a financial war of attrition. It doesn't matter if you're in the wrong on a given case, if you have lots of money and your adversary doesn't, a competent lawyer can still pretty much guarantee your victory.

The bigoted judge in this case sure doesn't help matters, though.

From the Wikipedia article on the Church of the SubGenius (new window):

In 2006, Rachel Bevilacqua, known as Rev. Magdalen in the SubGenius hierarchy, lost custody and contact with her son after a district court judge took offense at her participation in the Church's X-Day festival. Judge James Punch [5] asked Bevilacqua to explain the humor of pictures from the event, and required that she produce a picture that would "absolutely knock my socks off with the humor of it." Without identifying anything in her testimony as specifically false, Punch pronounced her description of the church's activities as "clearly prevaricating" and "obviously so not true from anybody who's looking at it from any normal perspective" and Bevilacqua herself as "mentally ill" and a "pervert."

Can we please institute some sort of rule that you can't be a judge if you're a moron?

The bottom line in all this is

A) Custody fights can and do get nasty when the parents hate each other

B) IF you are a parent in a custody fight it may not be fair, but you need to think about how the events you attend could be taken out of context (It wasn't so much the Sub-genius connection that tripped her up as online photo galleries of the fun and games

C) If you run an "alt" event you need to be strict about your media policy and enforce it on all participants. I help run a Burning Man inspired event and we have strict rules about asking a subject if the want to be photographed before taking the picture, removing images online if the subject asks, and the ability for participants to designate their areas "no photography zones" and have all of the above enforced by event security, the large friendly bikers who own the event's land, and a real sonofabiatch Lawyer (c'est moi).

I never implied that you were gay.

I think she's cute & if she'd dress like that at a devivial she'd be one pretty wild date...

Yes, I think because the judge doesn't like her opinion.

If the SubGenius crowd piss off some fundie nutball judge, then I am all for them of course. The good reverend Magdalen can baptize me any day as long as there is plenty of the laying on of hands.
 
2007-08-19 10:20:36 AM  
This is fantastic news, particularly since the father was so clearly a first-degree asscake. But I'm really worried about what he managed to do to the kid over all this time. Young Bevilacqua may have lost his Yeti heritage completely...

99% of us don't know the full story.

We don't know how much "subculture" she exposes her son to (it's all he said-she said).

You don't know how the new boyfriend is....maybe he's a foul-mouthed, 'school is for idiots,' heavy drug user and the father doesn't have court-submissable proof, so he's using this to get his son away from the negative environment.

You don't know if the father had a fling on the wild side, but is actually more conservative in life and simply doesn't agree with this lifestyle. Having different views doesn't make you a moron.

Or, maybe the father really loves his son but, as with most divorces, fathers lose their kids as the court assumes men are too incompetent to raise a child....yet they are somehow plenty competent to pay child support. He saw this as an opportunity to get more time with the son he loves. Yeah, I know, a father wanting to spend more time with his child--what a bastard.

Like women never manipulate the law. Why do you think they cry in court?

Speculate all you want--but that's all this thread is. No one here knows the real reasons or facts, just the one facet, provable with photographic evidence, that's presented in court.

And unfortunately that's what law is decided on--not the truth, but what's provable.
