How is it lipservice Ak? They have been going there for years. The boy is getting progressively worse and while the church offers alternatives, the mother won't change. If your kid was punched in church, it would be a problem. Or peed on for that matter.

Shouldn't the congregation be attempting, as a community, to embrace him and help him? Or maybe I'm wrong. I don't belong to any religion, that's just the big "pro" I'm always hearing about them. This isn't the first time I've seen that be just lip service.

Apparently this isn't even close to the whole story. The church tried numerous times to offer private services, watching the service from another room etc.

The mother should contact the priest and arrange for private mass. As a mother, she should realize that she wouldn't want her child hit at church. That being said, there are certainly other avenues and tactics to be used other than her demanding access and the church filing an RO. Like I said, private mass etc.

Jesus cured people, he didn't say anything about allowing them into his house.

This is such a tough situation, we have a friend who has an autistic child and he gets violent sometimes, not knowing what is right or wrong, a lot of us cringe when we know he is going to be at a function b/c people have to be on edge about him playing with their kids, not to mention his parents don't do much other than chase him around all the time.

That's really rough, since one of the best ways to help children with autistics be better behaved is through socialization. I bet attending church was one of the only social activities he had. Not saying it was the wrong decision: A church is a private group/business and has every right to deny membership. I hope some programs for autistic children and their families are contacting his mother in order to give her information.

This is such a non-story. If any child were as disruptive and violent as this child has been, they would be asked to leave as well, and not return until they could behave appropriately. I'm sorry for the mother. Autistic children are not easy to care for.
