    World Nut Daily:

    The German government, in a throwback to its National Socialist Workers Party heritage, has declared war on homeschool families, promising to bring those with banned “religious convictions” into alignment with the state regulations.

    UPDATE: WTF!!!

    Michael Farris, cofounder of the Home School Legal Defense Association, has called for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to protect the right of parents to educate their children at home, in light of what is developing in Europe, and the growing influence of international court conclusions in the U.S.

    His concern is that if the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child were ratified by the Senate or adopted by the federal courts as enforceable international law, American homeschooling could be banned.

    He notes that the parents’ rights to control their children’s education never were written into the U.S. Constitution because the Founding Fathers recognized that it was the Bible that gave parents a God-given right to educate their children at home or in a private or government school.

    Riiiight! The Founding Fathers believed the Bible gave us a right to homeschool? Does that make even the slightest bit of sense? What book of the Bible covers homeschooling? Deuteronomy?

    He’s taking one verse and really stretching it there.

    Hey Mike, Jesus called – he wants his religion back. And stop scaring the sheeple! I have to deal with the fall-out too.

    If he’s stretching Deut. 6:7, we shouldn’t be allowed to homeschool girls.

    Not that Farris’s amendment would actually pass, but if it did, wouldn’t that effctively put HSLDA out of business?

    Sounds to me like meaningless babble constructed for the purpose of furthering the HSLDA membership drive.

    Everything thing that comes out of Farris’ mouth is meaningless babble designed to increase cash flow for HSLDA

    Doesn’t the Bible give the example of the homeschooling father addressing his daughter thus:

    “Here have I, thy schoolmaster, made thee more profit than other princesses can that have more time for vainer hours and tutors not so careful.”

    Sounds scripturally definitive to me.

    Oh wait, that may have been something else.

    He sure knows how to win friends – I’m sure now that he’s called the German government a bunch of Nazis they will do whatever he wants.
