The court held that public schools can expose American children to any depravity, can erotically indoctrinate them, can sexualize them when they're barely out of diapers - and parents can have no say in the matter.
The case involved a questionnaire distributed to 7- to-10 year-olds in the Palmdale, California school system. The survey asked students to rate how often they thought about "touching my private parts too much," "thinking about other people's private parts," "having sex feelings in my body" and so on.
Schools that do not seem to be able to teach kids how to tie their shoes are really into sexual instruction both in the U.S. and in Canada.
Why should you worry? You would be wise to be on your guard because court rulings on parents' influence over their own children in Canada seem to be trending in the same direction.
You can read more about what the U.S. court says and how Don Feder, one conservative commentator, feels about it by clicking here.
Now It's Your Turn!: Please come back after you read what Don Feder says and share how you feel about the trend toward state over-involvement in the lives of our children.

Q2: Slavery in the Bible has to be taken in context. What the Scriptures teach about slavery was in fact the need for slave-owners to be way ahead of their time with respect to how slaves were to be treated. Slavery was an economic requirement of the day and culture. God's way was to be more 'beneficial' to the slave and to ultimately provide him/her both physical and spiritual freedom.
Q3: Absolute truth is the commodity of the day -- if Science and Christianity are absolute truths -- then they both belong to God and thus must depend on each other, and verify each other.
Hope this helps. Let's not let atheists have the last word? Sometimes, a little assertiveness gains a lot of respect.
