Here is a sobering article following up on yesterday's post.
Thoughts From A Conservative Mom: Sweden outlaws home schooling
So much for those who are thinking that the UNCRC is not going to be a problem for the US.
Just because you are not homeschooling does not mean that teams of government bureaucrats will not be able to override your every decision if they deem it not in "the best interests of the child."
Do you REALLY want someone else telling you what is best for your children?
Parents, oppose ratification of this treaty with every breath, or risk losing the right to direct the upbringing of your children.
Including their education.
Including their spiritual development, or lack thereof.
A lot of parents don't care about that because they think that will only affect those crazy Christians who hate the "godless" schools and want to establish a Theocracy on earth. "Good riddance," they are thinking. "We could do with less religion in the world."
Atheist parent, do you want the government to tell you that you are required to take your child to church if he wants to go?
Muslim parent, do you want the government to tell you that you must allow your child to convert to Judaism if that is what she desires?
That's what I thought.
This affects everyone.
