Get a clue & wake up! The best way to lead a nation astray of its values is to keep it ignorant of its history.

Usurpation of Parental Rights, Again

The Obama administration is allowing the courts to attack homeschooling families, as reported in today’s Washington Times (hat tip James Koerner).  Apparently the dispute came to light because the couple is divorced, and the Father is disgruntled enough with the Mother to hurt the daughter’s education.  Thankfully, Mom turned to the ADL for help and they will turn it around.

Home-schooler ordered to attend public school
Mom’s religious views ripped by court
By Julia Duin

A New Hampshire court ordered a home-schooled Christian girl to attend a public school this week after a judge criticized the “rigidity” of her mother’s religious views and said the 10-year-old needed to consider other worldviews as she matures.

Ever since the judge’s ruling came out in July, the case has aroused the interest of home-schooling groups nationwide, who  have asked why a court has the power to decide whether someone’s religious views are too extreme (emphasis mine & throughout).

The girl’s mother, Brenda Voydatch, has engaged the Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian legal group based in Scottsdale, Ariz., to contest the ruling, in which the judge granted a request by the girl’s father, Martin Kurowski, that the girl go to a public school.

On Tuesday, the girl, Amanda Kurowski, started fifth grade at an elementary school in Meredith, N.H., under court order. Amanda’s “vigorous defense of her religious beliefs … suggests strongly that she has not had the opportunity to seriously consider any other point of view,” District Court Judge Lucinda V. Sadler said.

And why exactly does the court feel the need to regulate the “opportunity to see other points of view”???  Are they now the purveyors of right-thought and the holders of the moral code by which we judge all political correctness?  God help us all.  This might be an excellent time to donate to the ADL.

What’s Left of the Constitution?

“What’s Left of the Constitution?” is a periodic news digest featuring Alliance Defense Fund legal analysis of proposals, policies, and trends advanced by the federal government.  On a regular basis, this digest specifically highlights policies and actions that move America away from the principles of the U.S. Constitution and closer to the demands of the political Left, especially ones that threaten religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and the family.
