This paragraph especially got my dander up.
The Ninth Circuit went even further, marking the school door as the line where parents' rights end and the “village” takes over. In Fields v. Palmdale School District last November, the court ruled that parents' fundamental right to control the upbringing of their children “does not extend beyond the threshold of the school door,” and that a public school has the right to provide its students with “whatever information it wishes to provide, sexual or otherwise.”
This says that if you send your child to public school (according to the 9th circuit court) the leftist, commie, wackos have every right YOU should have to teach them. Including their doctrine, and their religion. And that you should have NONE! That totally negates the problem the parent had with their child being shown an R rated movie during classtime without parental permission last week. That allows students to be taught that abortion is not only okay, but basically allows the government parent to take their “daugther” for an abortion!!!!!!!!!
Folks, I'm sorry if you don't agree, but keeping your children home is not only a good idea, it is sinful if you send them away so they can have their heads filled with this garbage!!!! Christian schools are better, but many of them still have issues.
The only way to truly know what your child is learning is to be with them and teach them at HOME!!!!
I am terrified. Yes, God is Sovereign. Yes, He has the entire world in His hands. Yes, He is using homeschoolers to call believers to Himself. But when I stop and think about the things our government is doing to our children, our families, and our freedoms that people like Shane's Grandpa (and others who actually died to save our freedom) I am frightened.
The government has taken control like a frog in a pot gets boiled. Yes, we are enjoying freedom right now, but at what cost. Never again will all babies have a chance at life. Never again will homosexuality be thought of as a sin to the majority of our country. Never again will God be taught in government schools. Never again will we have a society where the church actually takes care of those who can't take care of themselves. The government has become the church.
People do not want to work, they do not want to raise their “kids” they want places to live and food on their table just because they “deserve it” As a society, we expect the government to take care of us. (Even homeschoolers what something from the government if they can get it– computers, supplies, etc.) Don't you remember your parents saying “nothing in life is free” or ” you can't get something for nothing” We are giving our freedoms for $. Folks, we're on our way to becoming a socialist society and maybe even a communist society. I may lose what little readership I had with that statement, but I'm tired of dancing around the signs.
The word of God says nothing is new under the sun. We can look at history and see great nations of the past that fell!! The United States is not beyond this– we are walking down that path. Personally, I think it will come from within.
We have met the enemy and it is us.
