"They do not worship Satan"

Or the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But even if they did, so long as no one gets hurt, it's nobody's business.

Remember the Indiana judge who decreed that, as part of a divorce settlement, a couple could not practice Wicca with their son simply because he (the judge) objected? Well, it's been overturned:
The Indiana Court of Appeals today upheld the rights of parents to expose their children to Wicca, a contemporary pagan religion.

In its unanimous ruling, the court declared that a Marion County judge was out of bounds in approving a divorce decree that also directed the parents to shelter their 10 year old son from non mainstream religious beliefs and rituals.

And the author clarifies:
Wiccan beliefs center around the balance of nature and a reverence for the earth. They do not worship Satan.
