Seen on Cardinal Sean O'Malley's Blog

The Cardinal and Bishops are strongly behind the current marriage amendment in Massachusetts. But why isn't the Church taking a public stand for parents' rights in the schools, and protecting religious freedom of the parents in the moral education of their own children? Isn't the early training of a child just as important as marriage? Where is the Catholic Church -- and all the other churches and Orthodox Jews of Massachusetts -- on this all-important issue? Maybe some of our Catholic friends should post more on the Cardinal's blog. Here's one recent posting:

I would say the biggest priority to pray for this Lent is the children in Massachusetts public schools who call themselves Catholic or Christian, who will be subjected to diversity ed at kindergarten. This "family stuff" will not just be simple books on different families -- it will be a new composite of sexual & trans behaviors ...

According to the Judge last Friday who decided the David Parker/Lexington public school case, take your kid out or homeschool is the only answer to the public school sex ed question. Do we have any reaction to this nightmare in the making this Lent? The fear of man bringeth a snare. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. At least the voucher system should be in place so decent people do not have to contribute to the delinquency of minors in this decision. The Judge had the nerve to say this was not a religion issue. Can you believe that!

Visit Get the whole transcript. This mensch of a Jewish father Brian Camenker, and David Parker and the Wirthlins of Lexington are battling for all parents and where is the camaraderie… Camenker is taking on the whole state and who will stand up and be counted in all this and back him up and unite the parents to react with righteous outrage ... God save the USA. My religion is clearly against this behavior....Where is the church in all this? I do not hear you?
