Mea Culpa.

My comments on the Beth Din are irrelevant - though correct in different circumstances.

The Children Act recognises the rights of parents to choose how to bring up their children and with whatever belief system the parents have - the pre-eminence of parental choice.
However strange the belief, is not the judge here merely applying the law?

A father is free to change his mind as to teh belief system he seeks for his children, but is thi a decision which in law has to be taken by both parents, and if they have agreed on system X, and he seeks to change it, and she does not, he must not do so unilaterally, but has a duty first to seek an appropriate order from the court.

(edited to correct it)
