Rachel â€“ like everybody online these days, I get many requests for financial assistance from a number of organizations and causes. Some I respond to; some I don’t.
However, given your situation, I will always donate when I can. Why? Because the circumstances surrounding this case have created a First Amendment catastrophe of unimaginable proportions.
Unfortunately, the judicial punishment you received simply for expressing yourself is mirrored every day throughout this country in a variety of ways.
For example, in October, at Southwestern College (in Chula Vista, CA), the administration cracked down on students and instructors who were protesting class cuts, sending armed campus police to several faculty members’ homes afterwards and suspending them with pay, for allegedly “inciting a riot”.
This caught the attention of the ACLU and FIRE (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education); both organizations sent detailed letters to the college’s administrative officers threatening legal action and citing numerous Supreme Court rulings against such action.
Unfortunately, that was the eighth U.S. educational institution this year to have been admonished for attempting to clamp down on “the right of the people peaceably to assemble.”
Although circumstances on campus were different, the encroachment upon freedom of expression is similar to what you experienced while being interrogated at the Orleans County courthouse.
May you triumph over the little minds that generated this travesty of justice, and may your family members be forever free of such interference in their personal affairs.
The amount of debt she is in just because of that naive judicial action is amazing, I only gave a little but I hope people will remember this fight
Fight it. Never stop. Donâ€™t give in to this kind of back-door administrative oppression.
Hope my little contribution helps. Again, I’m always happy to assist a fellow subgenii. Bob Speed Rev Magdalen
I would like to offer something other than money. Like how to zero out your account. This will allow you to create abundance from the very ones that have created lack. There is also a way to speak to the courts that work in your favor. Instead of against you. You come in as a underdog only because you come from the fictious speach of the law. Instead of speaking to the court in the Language of Now and the Truth.
Let me know if you would like to know more
I just read about all the legal troubles. That totally sucks. Why doesn’t the U.S. legal system attack creationists or holocaust denyers from having custody of their children? I have been an unofficial member in spirit of the Church of the SubGenius for 15 years, and, while generally being a misanthrope and asshole, I sometimes get the urge to help if I can. Here’s hoping for the full custody of your son and an end to this bullshit.

…for the record, I don’t have privileges to remove comments from this page. Presumably the comments above were removed by pledgie.com administrators, though I personally did not send a complaint.
Having another kid just means she needs the money all the more, doesn’t it? Keep spreading the word, folks!
Of the $6,700 raised from the pledgie.com pledgie.com donations page as of this time, $4,000 of this was back in March of 2007 when a desperate call for donations was made. At that time, Magdalen’s Dad had sacrificed his retirement savings to help with her legal costs, and the $4,000 raised at that time was intended to help pay him back for that. Since then, about $2,700 in further donations have been received â€“ of which we are enormously grateful to everyone who donated. These donations have been used towards Magdalen’s legal costsâ€¦and since those legal costs ran up to about $140,000, every penny of this has been needed. Feel free to spread as many nasty rumors as you want, we don’t care. We are simply thankful to all of the kind souls who saw it in their hearts to help out.
She may have temporary custody of her son but the legal case is far from over. Read
