CALIFORNIA APPEALS COURT ORDERS HOMESCHOOLED CHILDREN INTO PUBLIC OR PRIVATE SCHOOL

A California appeals court has ruled that the children of a homeschooled family must be enrolled in a public school or a "legally qualified" private school.

From
WND: "The ruling came in a case brought against Phillip and Mary Long over the education being provided to two of their eight children. They are considering an appeal to the state Supreme Court, because they have homeschooled all of their children, the oldest now 29, because of various anti-Christian influences in California's public schools.

"The decision from the 2nd Appellate Court in Los Angeles granted a special petition brought by lawyers appointed to represent the two youngest children after the family's homeschooling was brought to the attention of child advocates.

The Appeals court stated: "[T]he trial court had found that "keeping the children at home deprived them of situations where (1) they could interact with people outside the family, (2) there are people who could provide help if something is amiss in the children's lives, and (3) they could develop emotionally in a broader Read More...

SCHWARZENEGGER SIGNS BILL FORCING SCHOOLS TO PROMOTE HOMOSEXUALITY TRANSSEXUALITY & BISEXUALITY

"Every school a homosexual, bisexual, transsexual indoctrination center"
 
SACRAMENTO, Oct. 12 /
Christian Newswire/ -- Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed into law two bills requiring all public school instruction and activities to positively portray transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten. He has also signed bills undermining marriage and infringing upon the moral conscience of business owners, churches, and nonprofit organizations.
 
Late Friday, Schwarzenegger signed
SB 777 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of schoolchildren by requiring changes to all instruction and activities) and AB 394 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of students, parents, and teachers via "anti-harassment" training). Signing the bills was a switch for Schwarzenegger, who vetoed nearly the same bills last year, in the midst of his reelection campaign.
 
"Arnold Schwarzenegger has delivered young children into the hands of those who will introduce them to alternative sexual lifestyles," said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF), which helped lead the statewide charge against these bills. "This means children as young as five years old

PUBLIC EDUCATION: THE MODERN DAY SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS

Our culture is immersed in temporal and material cares while we abandon our children to state run schools that have adopted all sorts of godless agendas. While we are consumed by consumerism, and absorbed into the culture, our children are robbed of the truth and beauty of a life of Faith. It is time that we take our children back and stop our complicity in the slaughter of any remaining innocence in this world.

Pope Pius XI stated in
Christian Education of Youth: “...[C]hildren are actually being torn from the bosom of the family to be formed (or to speak more accurately, to be deformed and depraved), in the godless schools and associations, to irreligion and hatred..thus is renewed in a real and more terrible manner the slaughter of the innocents.”

Parents are under a grave obligation to provide for the religious and moral education of their children. (Code of Canon Law of 1917, Canon 1113) We will be judged as parents by how we rear our children. Because of this clear teaching, we can no longer deny that the environment of most public schools with their aggressive sex “education” programs, pro-homosexual social clubs, and the muzzling of all mention of God, is indeed deadly to the souls of our youth. Yet we have swallowed the entire concept of State-dominated indoctrination of our children-- hook, line and sinker. What effect does an education which is silent about our Creator, and the purpose of our existence have on a child's character? Ignorance of such matters can only breed proud fools.

But go back in time less than a century and there were still voices questioning and even condemning the entire notion of a free compulsory secular education for the masses. One such critic was Hilaire Belloc who stresses over and over
