This link from my friend Akhtar. A secular humanist organization, which has been granted special status
with the United Nations, is considering a proposal which may criminalize the religious upbringing of children by
The Centre for Inquiry, which has been granted a consultative status as a Non-Governmental Organization,
has proposed the UN debate the pros and cons of the
religious education of children by their parents. Innaiah Narisetti, the chairman for the organization's
India Chapter, believes that this religious instruction at an early age is tantamount to child abuse, and that
the United Nations should take a firm stand on the issue. Narisetti is seeking for the rights of parents to provide
religious instruction to their children to be annulled, and for state governments to take responsibility for
educating children in religious instruction.
Quote: ""The time has come to debate the participation of children in religious
institutions," continues Narisetti. "While some might see it as a matter better left to parents, the
negative influence of religion and its subsequent contribution to child abuse from religious beliefs and practices
requires us to ask whether organized religion is an institution that needs limits set on how early it should
have access to children."
In Germany there have been a few cases where Christian
home-schoolers were forcibly separated from their parents, because they chose to educate their children at
home rather than attending the state school. In order to stop what the state believed was child abuse, in my mind
they committed the worst child abuse act possible, separating a child from its own family. In the United Kingdom it is
legal to educate children at home, largely because as far as I remember, our Queen was home-schooled. But as was
stated in the last article on the
EU superstate, more and more, state governments are seeking to take control of what ideologies are taught to our
Quote: "American homeschoolers need to be worried, according to a WND report, because
the ease with which similar restrictions on free choice could be imposed in the United States. A Democrat Senate and
a Democrat president could ratify U.N. treaties such as the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, or
the European Convention on Human Rights, which is an offshoot of the U.S. Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
That is the foundation being cited by the German government to ban homeschooling entirely, and to
indoctrinate public and private school students into a sexualized, socialist society.
The wisest man that ever lived said, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and
when he is old, he will not depart from it", Proverbs 22:6. As Christians we recognize that, and
state governments also recognize it. That is why this UN organization is seeking to remove the rights of parents to
teach their children. I was saved at the age of
four years old, and am glad that my parents chose to teach me in the way I should go. For not to do so,
would have been child abuse.
