I would just like to say that I am not a political person. I know nothing of politics and really have no desire to. However this has come to my attention and I do not think it is something we should be silent about. Even if you do nothing else, please pray! These are our children given to us by God and we are responsible for what happens to them. Please go to the parental rights website and learn more about this and what you can do if you feel led. The following article is from Michael Ramey. There is also a documentary that you can watch that explains what all of this means. The CRC is a BAD thing! The CRC will take your rights as a parent away from you concerning all things! Schooling, medical, and religion are just a few. Scary times are ahead! Pray!
Stop the Treaty - Save Religious Freedom
According to Article 29 of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), every child has a government-enforceable right to be taught religious tolerance – the U.N.-defined idea that no one religion or belief can claim to be exclusively right. The only thing not to be tolerated is the belief that your religion is actually true.This is one reason we oppose the CRC, and a reason why last Friday we sent out a call blitz to support SR 99, the resolution in the U.S. Senate opposing CRC ratification. We are very close to a victory. SR 99 will halt the CRC for 2 more years, but only the Parental Rights Amendment can end the threat of this treaty permanently. (Read more about the dangers of this treaty at www.Parentalrights.org/20things .)To reach both the short-term and the long-term victory, we need your help in educating more loyal Americans. Here’s what we would ask you to do:
Warn your congregation. Whatever your faith, you want to pass your beliefs to your children – and so does the rest of your congregation. ParentalRights.org President Michael Farris has prepared a letter for you who are Christians to share with your pastors, addressing this need from a Christian perspective. This is because a majority of our readers are Christians – but the legal principles of religious liberty contained therein apply to every faith. We have also prepared a bulletin insert that your pastor can print and hand out.I know people of many different faiths will receive this email, and we stand by the right of every one of you to teach your children as you believe, regardless of which faith that is. Religious and parental liberties are of value only when all of us are protected.We would be glad to work with those from other faiths to prepare an appropriate flyer for you to use as you see fit. Please send us your suggestions for an appropriate text. (I will then post these at ParentalRights.org/Documents later this week or next.) We will only save our parental and religious liberty from the threat of the CRC if we can all stand together to defend it.With your help, people will understand the threat of the CRC. Use these tools to reach out and urge your faith family to sign the petition to defend your children and our religious liberty through SR 99 and adoption of the Parental Rights Amendment.
