U N Convention on the Rights of the Child

Are you kidding me? Do Americans really need a non-elected-by-by-the-people, international body telling us how to parent our children? Barbara Boxer and Hillary Clinton, among others, think so.

Under Article 13, any attempts to prevent their children from interacting with material parents deem unacceptable is forbidden. Children are vested with a “ freedom of expression” right, which is virtually absolute. No allowance is made for parental guidance. Section 1 declares a child’s right to “seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child’s choice.”

In Article 14, children are guaranteed “ freedom of thought, conscience and religion.” Children have a legal right to object to all religious training. Alternatively, children may assert their right against parental objection to participate in the occult.

Article 15 declares “the right of the child to freedom of association.” Parents could be prevented from forbidding their child to associate with people deemed to be objectionable companions. Under Article 15, children could claim a “fundamental” right to join gangs, cults, and racist organizations over parental objection.

Did we learn nothing from N@zi Germany? When the government took away parental rights?

Come on! You know the only possible way our children can be truly taken care of is by the GOVERNMENT! Government of the people, by the people, for the people, and taking care of the people by taking away all of the people's rights!

I know you are being sarcastic, but there are probably many people who would think you were making perfect sense! ;)

I'm very scared when the gov't starts this type of thing, especially when they absolutely speak of cults, the occult and a child's right to reject or choose his/her own religion. This opens the gov't and the children up for alot of things.... Very frightening when it's come out from the recesses and hidden places to be said so frankly. It used to be a hidden agenda in the 70's when I was fighting it through the Women's Movement.
