Homosexual indoctrination in Massachusetts....

Christians [and others of good will who oppose homosexuality] who object to their children being indoctrinated in perversity, will not be allowed to opt out. The persecution intensifies.

This is extremely disturbing. Vatican II teaches us that, in raising children, the responsibility of parents is primary: "Since parents have given life to their children, they have a very grave duty to educate them, and so are to be recognized as their primary and principal educators" (GE, No. 3). And Pope John Paul II, explaining the conciliar teaching more fully in Familiaris consortio No. 36, says that: "The right and duty of parents to give education is essential, since it is connected with the transmission of human life; it is original and primary with regard to the educational role of others, on account of the uniqueness of the loving relationship between parents and children; and it is irreplaceable and inalienable, and therefore incapable of being entirely delegated to others or usurped by others."

Canon Law is also very clear on this matter. Canon 793, 1., states that: "Parents as well as those who take their place are obliged and enjoy the right to educate their offspring; Catholic parents also have the duty and the right to select those means and institutions through which they can provide more suitably for the Catholic education of the children according to local circumstances" and Canon 1136 says that: "Parents have the most serious duty and the primary right to do all in their power to see to the physical, social, cultural, moral and religious upbringing of their children."

This inalienable right of parents has been recognized by the United States Supreme Court. In 1922, the State of Oregon attempted to enact legislation that would have forced all children to attend the public schools within that state. But the Supreme Court overturned that decision and established that "The child is not the mere creature of the state; those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right, coupled with the high duty, to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations."

This is a direct attack on the rights of parents and their children. It is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court will, in my opinion, throw it out.

More disturbing is that Massachusetts courts have become agents of the radical homosexual agenda. They have chosen sides in the culture war and are attempting to force-feed homosexual agitprop to those who don't want it.

What is the next step in Massachusetts? To make it a hate crime to oppose homosexuality on religious grounds? And then what? Those who insist on following the tenets of their faith will be incarcerated?

This is all the proof I need to see that the homosexual movement is a hate movement intent on employing the politics of coercion to force their perverse agenda on those of us who follow the Lord. Isn't it amazing how the same people who condemned SBC members for wanting to coerce others are so silent about this coercion. Hypocritical no? Apparently those people have no problem with radical homosexual activists using the courts to coerce others to accept their homosexual ideology.

What's happening in Massachusetts is just chilling. Christian parents are being told that they have no rights and that the almighty State will forcibly indoctrinate their children - against their will - into accepting the homosexual lifestyle. This is an evil persecution.

What positively outrageous news. My tax dollars being spent on homosexual propaganda? I'd like to know how to protest this.

Your Blog is fantastic. You're witness to Catholic truth is much appreciated. God bless you sweety.

We have no obligation whatsoever to abide by unjust laws that violate God's law. I can't think of a better reason to go to prison or get hauled before a judge than in protecting the innocence of my children.
