Intrusion Into Our National Sovereignty

The UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)

Constitutional expert Michael Farris speaks at the Culpeper Tax Day Rally.

Marybeth Hicks [click to read] in Jewish World Review.

"If you're a parent, you're probably too busy doing the day-to-day work of raising your children to worry about an international treaty that could actually undermine your authority over them.

But if you've ever insisted that your teenager drag himself out of bed on a Sunday morning to attend church with the family, or required him to find a part-time job to pay for the increase in your car insurance,or — heaven forbid — if you've ever spanked a young child for an act of willful disobedience, there are folks who'd like to override your parental judgment.

Folks like President Obama, in fact."

'Dangerous' [1.] homeschoolers are already aware of the ramifications and leading the fight. Michael Farris spoke April 15 at a rally in Culpeper outlining the dangers in the UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child.

"Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) has introduced S.R. 519, opposing ratificationof the CRC. He hopes to find 34 co-sponsors and thereby signal to the president that there's no need to send the treaty to the Senate for advice and consent since it wouldn't pass. This is the end-run play; the game winner is a Parental Rights Amendment to the Constitution."
