A court thinks that a 10-year-should be exposed to other religious views. A home school girl described as well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at, or superior to, grade level has been told by a New Hampshire court official to attend a government school because she was too "vigorous" in defense of her Christian faith?
A Christian girl vigorous in her faith, is told by a New Hampshire court official to attend a "government run school," a. suggesting that she has not had the opportunity to "seriously" learn and debate other's point of view?" What happened to separation of church and state? Are you kidding, and how could her religion be any business of the public school? She has not had the opportunity to to consider? Consider what? A 10-year-old needs to consider religion? Isn't that what parents are for?
The article maintains that this is a step too far for any court, which I totally agree with, challenging the recommendation which was approved by Judge Lucinda V. Sadler. And, is also currently being challenged by attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund.
- Is the problem really that at 10, she is defending her faith, or that she has faith?
- It sounds unnatural to me that at ten, anyone would want to even discuss other's religion. At ten, we never had a point of view about religion, we just did what we were told to do. This is just crazy! It is an American tradition to Home School your child and teach your child your religious view. (Just like the Amish).
