SubGenius Custody Case
A mother has lost custody of her kid because of her activities with The Church of the Subgenius.
The story is here.
"The Church is widely known to engage in vociferous anti-authoritarian acts such as Devivals, where participants often become frenzied, shocked, and touched by the Words of their "god" J. R. "BOB" Dobbs, as they engage in acts including healings, sickenings, sacrifices, Public Confessionals, Short Duration Mass Marriages, Time Control Ceremonies, Record Burnings, and Head Launchings. Various bands and other performance artists are rumored to be ready to participate in this unwholesome miasma, including the Church's Sacred Scribe Reverand Ivan Stang, Rev. Nickie DeathChick, Dr. K'taden Legume, the Lord Jesus Christ as well as an array of local subversives."
"After recess, Mr. Marks entered into evidence 16 exhibits taken from the Internet, 12 of which are photographs of the SubGenius event, X-Day. The judge, a very outspoken Catholic, became outraged at the photos of the X-Day parody of Mel Gibson's movie The Passion of the Christ -- especially the photo where Jesus [Steve Bevilacqua] is wearing clown makeup and carrying a crucifix with a pool-noodle dollar sign on it while being beaten by a crowd of SubGenii, including a topless woman with a dildo."
"His Honor also strongly disapproved of the photos of Mary Magdalen [Rachel Bevilacqua] in a bondage dress and papier mache goat's head, asking repeatedly "Why a goat? What's so significant about a goat's head?" in a transparent effort to reveal the hidden Satanism Judge Punch obviously believes is behind this satirical comedy."
