Subject: RE: Kosher

Richard raises the issue of two foster parents...one feeding the child
kosher and the other bacon. Besides the religious issues that I am sure
others will comment on I would just like to mention the psychological
issues.  It is very dangerous to a child's identity to treat him like this.
There is a rich psychological literature on children from "different
religious parents" and the severe identity problems they go thru.  Simply
go to the library (or web) and look up mixed marriages. Hope this helps,
