Homeschoolers have won a round in the long fight against the crackdown on family rights contained in the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child, but experts say they need to keep up their guard.
The convention, which is not yet ratified in the United States but has been adopted by numerous other nations, orders that children can choose their own religion with parents only having the authority to advise them, the government can override a parent's decision regarding a child if a social worker disagrees, a child has a right to a government review of every parental decision and Christian schools would violate the law if they refused to teach children "alternative worldviews."
And all corporal punishment, such as spankings, would be banned by law.
The conflict had arisen over legislation that was proposed in the United Kingdom, called the Children, Schools and Families Bill, that would have set into law many of the provisions and issues demanded by the U.N. plan.
Hey, I'm Dan, Been playing music for awhile in a group called Sanctyfied. Loving the new concept here and I'm so tired of Facebook.

Let me also post this, being it's been a problem for some. If your expecting me or my posts to be Religious and under your doctrines of what you may think is of God. Please don't add me. First off, I am not Religious. Religion bores me. I have Jesus Christ. I read His Word more than you will ever know. I also take the time to listen to what His Holy Spirit has to say. If your doctrines are about Judging other Christians instead of reaching out to the lost. You may not want to add me. That is not what Christ came and died for. Let alone Raised from the dead for. Those whom the Son Sets Free are Free Indeed!
