A Threat to Parental Rights

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you.

I came across this news article and wanted to pass it along. It is important for us to know how the Christian home is coming under attack. Christians, get involved and do not assume that our government has our best interest at heart.

Christian Attorney Sees Threat To Parental Rights
An attorney with the Christian Law Association sees a growing threat to the rights of parents to decide how their children should be educated.

David Gibbs III says he and other Christians believe they will have to stand before God and give an account for how they have raised and taught their children. But he fears that the new administration in Washington may try to exert more control over education, limiting the options of parents who do not like what their children are being taught in public schools. He says the Christian Law Association defends parental rights, including the right to home school children. "To successfully rear a child for God, it requires the church, it requires mom and dad, it requires education. It's a combined effort. We pray and diligently try to make the best decisions we can for our children because, you know what, we'll stand before God and give an account of the choices that we've made," he contends.

"I see some greater battles in the days ahead with the administration in Washington, DC, saying, 'We want to take over healthcare, we already control education, we want to increase control.' I think you're going to see the rights of parents coming under greater attack. We're watching an assault on the right of mom and dad to be what the Bible commands them to be."

GOD Bless You!
