The Obama administration is fighting to deport a German family who sought asylum after the German government threatened to take their five children if they continue to home school. The case goes back several years and I wrote about it previously here and here.
The Obama administration is now arguing that home schooling is not a fundamental right. Think about that. The Catholic Church teaches that parents are the primary educators of their children. And, in fact, a major purpose of marriage is the procreation and upbringing (i.e., education) of children. So if parents do NOT have a fundamental right to choose and oversee the education of their children, who does?
Silly question...Big Brother of course! The gospel according to liberals teaches the commandment to honor the village that raises the children. And that village is run by HHS and the Department of Education.
If the government wins on this, the rights of parents over their children here in the U.S. will be seriously threatened.
