  In do_cast put in:
    if ((GET_CLASS(ch) == CLASS_PALADIN || GET_CLASS(ch) == CLASS_BARD) &&
        !IS_GOOD(ch)) {
      send_to_char("You can't cast spells when you've turned your back on your religion.\r\n", ch);

    if (GET_CLASS(ch) == CLASS_ANTI_PALADIN && !IS_EVIL(ch)) {
      send_to_char("Anti-paladins can onl y cast spells if they are evil!\r\n", ch);

  You'll also have to put this in the skills you want.  It might be better
  to make this into a function and return TRUE/FALSE depending on whether
  or not they can cast the spells/use the skills.
