The Dreadful True Story

If this is your first News email from the Church of the SubGenius, you might not be familiar with the tragic situation of Rev. Magdalen "Rachel" and Rev. Jesus "Steve" Bevilacqua, whose child was taken from them by a New York state family judge -- BECAUSE THEY ARE SUBGENIUSES.I know this sounds ridiculous, and insane, like a made-up SubGenius prank, but if you suspect it might be one (HOW I WISH IT WERE!), here are links to newspaper and encyclopedia articles about it:WikiNews article with updates

A feisty weekly from the Rochester area, The Beast, has the most scathing of many good articles about the case, seen here.

An excellent, somewhat more recent article is in the Cleveland Free Times.Modemac's wikipedia page has the most detailed history of the case, with much more recent details, as well as the most complete collection of links:

You can find the various judges' actual comments there... to me, those are the most horrifying documents in the whole story. Obviously, what made the Salem Witch Hunts possible is still alive in New England. To make a long story short, recently, after a very prolonged and difficult struggle, Rev. Magdalen won back custody of her child... only to have it again denied BEFORE SHE COULD EVEN SEE HIM by an "emergency stay order." This means that now the case must go to a higher court -- which is good, because it will be FIVE judges who aren't just yokels from that same small town, who managed to get themselves elected as family court judges. There is a good chance that, when the case is seen by educated people, Magdalen will regain full custody of her son.One of the nightmarish aspects of this, however, is that, because the biological father supposedly has "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome," he has never had to work and is a trailer-court welfare case. This means that the state pays for his lawyers! But because the Bevilacquas each work the equivalent of two jobs, they have to PAY for their lawyers.And they have to pay a new, DIFFERENT lawyer to handle the higher appellate court case.

From Rev. Magdalen:

"Basically, although I did win the case, it's now going to appeal. Orleans County has, of course, offered to pay all the expenses for my ex's appeals case, while I still have to pay for my appellate lawyers, which it turns out are different from regular lawyers and require a new $10,000 retainer to hire. I'll still be represented by the same firm, Lipsitz, Green, Scime, Cambria, but a different individual will be handling the case."We go before the Fourth Circuit Appellate Division on June 2, and then they will make their decision within 30 days of that. I am cross-appealing to ask that the parts of the decision forbidding me to make or keep SubGenius art inside my home, travel with my husband for his job, and homeschool my son, be struck down. Until then, my son has to stay with my ex, though I am supposed to get "extended visitation." So far, I have not yet been able to actually access that extended visitation, as my ex says it will take a court order in writing to make him comply, and all we have is a verbal order. I hope that will be straightened out soon."In the meantime, I'm getting some desperately-needed R&R with my husband, as my mother-in-law generously gave me a ticket to come see him in England, where he's been sent for work. I'll be here in the UK for the next three weeks, then back to the daily grind in New York, waiting in place for the decision to come through and trying to spend as much time as I can with my son."There was an incident that occurred during that brief day when I had won the case, but the appeal had not yet gone through, that is very hard for me to write about. The principal of my son's school, Mr. P_____, actually disobeyed my written and verbal instructions to keep my son at school so I could pick him up and have at least one night with him before the appeal was filed. Instead, Mr. P____, knowing I was literally on the way to get my son from his school, deliberately released my son to my ex, so when I got there he was gone. My ex took my son and disappeared with him that whole night, not returning my son until the appeal went through. I called my ex and begged him over cell phone to tell me at least where my son was, if he was still in the state or the country, or what, and he just laughed and said that I would never find them. "It was the most horrible night of my life, and it was made so much worse by knowing that this did not have to happen, but Mr. P_____, who had been a witness in the case and was fully aware of the vicious hostility involved, chose to pick one parent over the other, directly in contradiction to the written order that I had sent him a copy of. I don't know what to make of it. I contacted the superintendent of Lyndonville Central Schools, and she refused to take any disciplinary action against Mr. P_____. My lawyer, Mr. Mattingly, is preparing a case for bringing charges against Mr. P_____, so I will update you all again when I know more about that. I know a lot of you are going through your own custody issues, so I thought you might like to know that this kind of flagrant abuse can happen-your children might not be as safe at school as you think they are."Anyway, that's about it for me, I hope all is well with all of you! My finances are still in extremely dire straits-I am $2,000 short of the retainer fee I need to proceed with my appellate lawyer, even after my father lent me his entire life savings as collateral on a loan, so if anyone feels motivated and has some extra cash, it would be so very much appreciated. Thank you all so much for everything, all your concern and support really has made the difference. I would have given up long ago and just spiraled into a fog of despair without all of you, so thank you, thank you, I can never thank you enough."++++Magdalen added this in a personal letter to me:"The appellate lawyer says he's working on the case already as a courtesy, but he wants his retainer ASAP. I just don't have it, and I can't get it. My parents already shot their entire savings and maxed out their credit, and Steve and I did too, and now there's nothing left for it but to beg the Internets and see if anyone would be willing to help out again, though I'm sure they're sick of me whining. "So far, this whole thing has cost us $73,000, and this new $10,000 charge on top of that is just the retainer, I'm sure the appellate lawyer will spend that all in no time and send me more bills as we get closer to June 2. So anyway, I was wondering if you could put out another email plea for money."...So hopefully, the appeals court will straighten everything out, give me back my boy, and set me free to go roam the earth with my husband and make whatever art I choose, as is my right as an American! But then, after following the Anna Nicole saga and seeing the way they treated her, I still don't have a lot of confidence in the American legal system. I wish some of the candidates would make reforming it their hot-button issue!"Sincerely,Rachel Bevilacqua

SHIRT: The brave and hardy administrators of Taphouse IRC (the official IRC network of the Church of the SubGenius) have begun a fundraiser for Magdalen's legal fund, by producing T-shirts with a goat head logo and the quote "Why a goat?" (as was repeatedly asked by the original judge in this case). These shirts are being sold for $20, of which $8.10 of every sale will go directly to her legal fund. All help is appreciated, and every little bit helps. The GOAT SHIRT DETAILS are here.

I, Stang, promise the next mailing, which will happen soon, will have lots of FUN news and reviews, and links to vast endless hours of SubGenius media Slack.
What the Heck -- Here's Some Fun Stuff Anyway
Not only is our new book, THE BOBLIOGRAPHON, doing well in stores, but The Second New Testament, REVELATION X - THE "BOB"APOCRYPHON, has been reprinted! This was the original sequel to THE BOOK OF THE SUBGENIUS and is the same size... but even more densely packed!



These two videos could not be more different. We started shooting the first one, starring Dr. Philo Drummond as a Pipeless early "Bob," in 1977 and finished it in 2007 -- 30 years in the making! (So to speak. We didn't actually spend that much TIME on it -- although it is about Time Control.) The second big feature is 23 minutes of eye candy and techno music that I put together for the recent Winterstar devivals. These are also available in high-res DivX avi for your modern DVD player on alt.binaries.multimedia.slack.

News about 10-X-Day, teX-Day (Austin, May 5), Euro-X-Day (Amsterdam May 12-18), Starwood and Burning Star events will be forthcoming in next newsletter! In case I don't get to that immediately, I should mention this one:APRIL 1: SUBGENIUS BOOK SIGNING at CITY LIGHTS BOOKSTORE in San Francisco, California with Dr. Philo Drummond, Dr. Hal, Puzzling Evidence, Phineas Narco, Michael Peppe, Paul MavridesHere's a link to an MP3 of Dr. Hal guesting on RU SIRIUS's webcast

Coming Out as a Straight Ally

Coming Out as a Straight Ally

A straight ally is someone who is not gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (GLBT) but personally advocates for GLBT equal rights and fair treatment. Straight allies are some of the most effective and powerful advocates for the GLBT movement. These allies have proven invaluable personally and politically, and are increasingly important in the fight for GLBT equality. Indeed, their voices often have been heard while those of GLBT people have been ignored.

Opinion polls show that people who know someone who is gay or lesbian are more likely to support equal rights for all gay and lesbian people. Anecdotal evidence also suggests that the same is true for people who know someone who is bisexual or transgender.
