    Can we have a cite, please?

    Now, 27 state constitutions protect traditional marriage. In addition to the seven listed above, the other states are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Utah.

    Your right to homeschool rests on the freedom to exercise your parental rights to direct the education and upbringing of your children. The U.S. Supreme Court has declared that our parental rights are founded on traditional marriage. By supporting the sanctity of marriage, you are indirectly helping to protect your freedom to homeschool.

    No need to guess where this one comes from.

    UPDATE: And major props to AZ voters for beating down the bigots.

    Well, that explains it.

    On Election Day my HE support group received a mass emailing from one of our members who claimed our right to homeschool hinged on the acceptance of the marriage amendment in Wisconsin. I was wondering how in the world she arrived at that conclusion, but now I see it wasn’t her idea in the first place. Yet another reason why we haven’t joined HSLDA.

    I’m probably the only conservative Christian in WI who didn’t vote for the amendment and feeling very lonely right now.

    HSLDA is, of course, assuming that the intersection of {homeschooling parents} and {gay couples who want to marry} is the null set. And they are of course wrong.

    HSLDA needs to decide whether they will represent homeschoolers or the Republican Party. They don’t seem to be doing a very good job of representing either while trying to represent both.

    I think HSLDA is very aware that the represent the intersection of the {homeschooler}{Christian}and {Republican} sets. However, that really isn’t THAT large of a group, so they have represent that the resulting set is much larger than it really is.
