    And the bleat goes on:

    A couple in Brussels has been threatened with criminal neglect for schooling their children at home, and a U.S. expert on the issue told WorldNetDaily the case actually could pose a threat to the sovereignty of the U.S. Constitution.

    That’s because if the basis for the legal arguments being made by Belgian prosecutors ever would be accepted in – or imposed upon — the United States, that fact would make the U.N. protocol equal to the Constitution.

    What terrifies U.S. homeschool education experts is the authorities’ decision to cite the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as a legal argument.

    …Under the protocol, children would be vested with freedom of expression, so that “any attempts (by parents) to prevent their children from interacting with material parents deem unacceptable is forbidden.”

    Reaching to the far end of that logic would produce this result: your 6-year-old wants Playboy magazine, or even to visit a Playboy club, and you pay for it.

    Yes, I’d say that was reaching for the far end of something. Fear-mongering? Wimpiness? Utter inanity? Whatever it is, it isn’t “logic.”

    ( …What terrifies U.S. homeschool education experts…)

    The Christian right understands the home ed expert/law quote as a direct threat to mankind in that the quote magnifies teachings from the pulpit that in the end times there will be a one world government lead by Satan. Many believe that world government is or will grow from the UN.

    The soccer mom, moderate Republican and the Conservative Dem do not read the quote with this view. Instead, they read the quote and if not rational, fall into the fear mongering Playboy part and act on those emotions.

    The spin is brilliant – it captures a variety of audiences.
