Homeschooling parents in a Canadian province have been ordered to stop using religious-based materials or other “unofficial” resources when they teach their children at home.
Pamela Nagle, a Christian, is one of many angry parents in British Columbia who say they will not abide by the order, according to the Vancouver Sun.
“They can’t tell me what to do in my own home,” said Nagle, whose son is homeschooled but attends a public school one day a week.
Nagle told the paper the materials she uses should not matter as long as her son’s education meets British Columbia’s standards.
“I don’t like the fact that they believe they know what’s best for my child,” she said.
Welcome to modern liberalism where people who mainly eschew children for career tell you how to raise your children. Many liberals mock the Pope and it’s clergy for being celibate and saying they can’t understand sexual sin, but turn right around and mandate what is best for families that still actually have children.
We can look at Canada and be aghast at the developments there with the legalization of same-sex marriage and the legal case where sexuality trumped religious convictions. Where possibly the Bible and the Catechism could become classified as hate literature. Yet Canada could stop becoming something like the picture in Dorian Gray to us and more like a mirror if we allow those same trends to continue here.
