Autism: Not The Musical
From ABC News and the Associated Press comes this report, that a Catholic priest in Minnesota has filed a court order against the parents of a severely autistic thirteen-year-old boy, to bar him from attending Sunday Mass. According to the report, Father Daniel Walz "alleges that Adam Race's unruly behavior endangers others who attend the Church."
(The Minneapolis-St Paul Star-Tribune has more.)
The parents at one point defied the order, citing discrimination. The mother was cited by police, and is expected to appear in court on June 2. In the meantime, if there are any parents of autistic children out there, or anyone who has experience in dealing with autism, mwbh would welcome your comments here.
After all, "such as these are the kingdom of heaven," right?
