ERF thinks he has the RIGHT to teach Teens without parental permission

So, raving dumbass, has posted this:
"Do We have the right to be witches?" About how we are supposed to teach teens without their parents knowledge and consent.

I'm here to tell you, if he came within five feet of my teen, I'd throw his sorry stupid ass in jail, forever.

So, for those that haven't yet see it, here is Bonewits Cult Danger evaluation:

I have come to several realizations in the past month. You are no longer writing posts to warn people away from something or someone you think is dangerous.

As such, you have become part of the problem instead of the solution.
