I've just been informed of a somewhat disturbing trend in the law. Strident homosexual practitioners and activists are apparently using domestic violence statutes to obtain restraining orders against people of faith. There is a case in Minnesota where a teacher at a Catholic school has obtained a restraining order against a parent whose "crime" consisted of writing the school priest and questioning whether the presence of a possibly "gay" teacher was safe and complied with Catholic doctrine. The matter is now on appeal to the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

In Maryland, a lesbian couple obtained a restraining order shortly after a Christian family moved in next door. What did the Christian family do? Your guess is as good as theirs, although they suspect the Christian bumper stickers on their cars might have prompted the lesbians' apprehension. No big surprise to learn that the ACLU is representing the lezbos.
