Court assault on parental rights

by Howard Center

News Weekly, November 19, 2005
American families are under further attack from the US judiciary.

American parents will be barred from having any say about the sort of sex education their children receive at state schools after a landmark ruling by the US Ninth Circuit Appeals Court.

Allan Carlson, international secretary of the World Congress of Families, has said:

"In essence, the court held that, regarding sexual indoctrination (in the guise of sex education), once parents surrender their children to the state education system, the schools can attempt to inculcate attitudes and values which families find abhorrent - over their strenuous objections.

"It's ironic that the schools - which often do an abysmal job of teaching reading, math and history - have taken it upon themselves to train the sexual citizens of tomorrow."

Judge Stephen Reinhardt, who delivered this majority ruling, three years ago ruled that "one nation under God" in the US pledge of allegiance was in violation of the US Constitution.
