If the order is as reported, then it's a blatant violation of the Free Speech Clause (because it's a speech restriction), the Free Exercise Clause (because it singles out religion for special restriction), the Establishment Clause (because it prefers some religions over others, and requires the court to decide what's a "mainstream" religion), and likely the Equal Protection Clause (because the order discriminates based on religion) and the Due Process Clause (because of the order's vagueness)...
A court commissioner wrote the unusual order into the couple's dissolution decree... "the parents are directed to take such steps as are needed to shelter [son] Archer from involvement and observation of these non-mainstream religious beliefs and rituals." The splitting parents challenged that section of the decree, but Judge Cale Bradford, who reviewed the commissioner's work, let it stand.
