Help Stop Law Requiring Homeschoolers to Teach “Tolerance!”


J. Michael Smith is president of HSLDA. He has been an advocate for homeschooling for more than 30 years. Read more >>

J. Michael Smith says in the HSLDA E-lert

HSLDA of Canada is asking for our help! Our homeschooling brothers
and sisters to the north (Alberta) are facing the possibility that
they will be banned from teaching during schooltime that the Bible is
true. The law would require that homeschoolers’ academic content
contain politically correct views such as tolerance for controversial
lifestyles. Paul Faris, president of HSLDA of Canada, says the law
would subject homeschool families to the Alberta Human Rights Act
which has been used to target Christians and conservatives,
particularly those families with religious and traditional views about
homosexuality.

Paul is asking that homeschooling families across North America call
and email Alberta’s education minister and premier for one day only on
Friday, March 9, 2012.

This is our Saturday in New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere. The contact details are here: http://www.hslda.org/elert/archive/2012/03/20120308154921.asp

Michael Smith goes on to say:

This is truly an international homeschool freedom issue that could affect our freedom in the U.S.! This approach to controlling homeschooling is gaining momentum in academic circles and in the media as discussed in HSLDA Chairman Mike Farris’s November 2010 Court Report cover story, “The Third Wave of Homeschooling Persecution.” In that article Mike writes:

“Now you understand what they mean to accomplish with mandatory teaching of tolerance. They aim to stop you from teaching your own children that Jesus is the only way to God. The American Bar Association (ABA) recognized all of this years ago in a book it published promoting the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. According to the ABA, a church school that taught that other worldviews are unacceptable and that Jesus is the only way to God would be teaching lessons that ‘fly in the face’ of Article 29 of the CRC.”

The Third Wave has already reached homeschoolers in Alberta, Canada. We ask you to stand with them in such a time as this! Please pray throughout the day on Friday as the Lord leads you.

 

We greatly value you and your support—it is a privilege to serve you!  Read more here: http://www.hslda.org/elert/archive/2012/03/20120308154921.asp

    Thank you for your prayers and support during our battle with the government. We are having another rally at the legislature on Monday the 19th your prayers are coveted. This is the worst thing I have ever seen in our usually conservative province.
    Again, thank you,
