A 10-year-old homeschool girl described as "well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level" has been told by a New Hampshire court official to attend a government school because she was too "vigorous" in defense of her Christian faith.
"It is not the proper role of the court to insist that Amanda be 'exposed to different points of view' if the primary residential parent has determined that it is in Amanda's best interest not to be exposed to secular influences that would undermine Amanda's faith, schooling, social development, etc. The court is not permitted to demonstrate hostility toward religion, and particularly the faith of Amanda and Mother, by removing Amanda from the home and thrusting her into an environment that the custodial parent deems detrimental to Amanda."
"The order assumes that because Amanda has sincerely held Christian beliefs, there must be a problem that needs solving. It is a parent's constitutionally protected right to train up their children in the religious beliefs that they hold. It is not up to the court to suggest that a 10-year-old should be 'exposed' to other religious views contrary to the faith traditions of her parents. Could it not be that this sharp 10-year-old 'vigorously' believes what she does because she knows it to be true? The court's narrative suggests that 10-year-olds are too young to form opinions and that they are not yet allowed to have sincerely held Christian beliefs," the ADF said.
(...)"Absent any other clear and convincing evidence justifying the court's decision, it would appear that the court has indeed taken sides with regard to the issue of religion and has preferred one religious view over another (or the absence of religion). This is impermissible," the documents said.
This is the consequence of having radical Leftists employed by the state. They are hellbent on imposing on those who don't apparently already adhere to Leftist orthodoxy. They don't care about non-Leftists' Constitutional, nor human rights.
However, the Leftists wouldn't dare impose on Muslims like this, would they? Never! Nor would they force homosexual children who are being homeschooled by homosexual parents to go to a strict Christian school "to be exposed to other points of view". But to impose on Christians, perfectly ok, according to the thing inside the heads of Leftists.
Things are only going to get worse as long as folks like Obama, the Democrats, or, alternatively, the RINOs (who submissively let the existing Leftist State Apparatus bully non-Leftists), are in charge in America.
The Leftist State Apparatus must be, well, put in its place, and must submit to the Constitution, must stop treading upon Americans' Constitutional rights, or else Leftists will have to be identified, one by one, and marked for dismissal. The State Apparatus serves the People, not the other way around, and anyone employed by the People who tread upon the Constitutional rights of Americans must be required to attend classes to reform their attitudes and behaviors, and demonstrate appropriate improvement on the job... or be dismissed.
At least we conservatives will give people a chance to change to keep their jobs, instead of firing them just like that... like Obama has been doing!
Thank goodness for the ADF, because the ACLU is the enemy of all real Christians everywhere and, rather than standing up for their civil rights, acts only to take them away.
