Catholic Man Accused of Witchcraft – Children taken from Home

Man accused of witchcraft has his children seized by the state, forced into Bible School, and made to rebuke the Holy Mother.

Feb. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- I believe it was Kandice Hobs, assistant prosecutor for Shelby County, Kentucky, who accused me of being a witch during court and on video tape. She used the masculine form of the word 'wicca', demanded to know my religion, demanded to know my religious affiliations, and demanded to know the pen name with which I have published religious manuscripts. Now in foster care, my children are forced to attend Bible school where they learn that the religion practiced in their home is sinful. My home is Catholic, my children are being taught not to pray to the Holy Mother, and I am forced to wonder who will be next. Maybe the state will round up all Jewish children and force them to rebuke their parent’s religion. When that's done, maybe we will move on to Muslims.

Kandice Hobs and the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services both know that five (5) medical doctors in three (3) different fields of specialty, spanning two (2) states have been clear that there is no neurological, psychological, or physical reason my children should be kept from my care. Dede Sullivan, supervisor with the Shelby County, Kentucky Cabinet has signed statements from each of these doctors.

Despite these facts, my children have now been in foster care for three months & nobody seems to be doing a thing to vacate the charge of dependency against me.

What is dependency? It is a situation where a person can not raise children due to no fault of his own. In my case, despite the fact that the originally diagnosing neurologist has stated I should have no problem raising children, my children remain in foster care because the Cabinet has accused me of having a concussion 4 years earlier. Evidently, they know better than 5 medical doctors and what my religious preference proves I am insane.

Key medical statements now include:

“I see no neurological reason that would prevent him from caring for his children.”

Dr. William T. Mayr, M.D. (the original diagnosing neurologist)

“...through clinical interviews and psychological testing, I find no psychological concern or disorder that would prevent him from parenting his children.”

Dr. Rhonda L. Mancini, PsyD Licensed Psychologist – (psychologist I hired for this matter)

“It is my professional opinion that the above patient is physically capable of caring for his 2 small children”

Dr. James R. Smith, MD (my general practitioner)

My home has been inspected three (3) times and found to be fit three times. I have no criminal background, no history of unnecessary violence, no history of substance abuse, and a long history of volunteer work in a religious capacity. I have not been accused of neglecting, abusing, or in any way mistreating my children. And yet, I am allowed to see my children only one hour a week in a small room with social workers watching my every move and listening to my every statement.

How did this start? I went to the courts and begged for help because my wife was beating me. A domestic violence order has been issued against my abuser, she retaliated with the false accusation about my medical ability to raise children, a single unverified telephone call was made to the cabinet by someone pretending to be one of my doctors,  and both the Cabinet and the Prosecutor continue to believe the claims of an abusive drunk over those of five (5) medical doctors.  

This is how the Common Wealth of Kentucky treats the victims of domestic violence.

"My children cry and beg to come home.  My boy begs me, Daddy don't give me away.  I stand accused of no abuse, neglect, or molestation but I may only see my children for an hour a week in a small room with social workers listening to my every word and watching my every movement" - Andrew Schlomann
