Arrogate authority; it's what the state does...
(Tim, w/thanks to Tim/Anne) The United Nations is so corrupt, not one smallest part of our nation should be under its authority. Yet our civil servants would like to adopt the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Oppose it here for all the reasons you wish, but especially that this is one more step down the already well-traveled path of government usurping the sacrosanct authority God has delegated to parents over their own flesh and blood.
God has ordained fathers and mothers as their child's natural sovereigns, and unless godly parents rise up against government's exploding encroachment, we'll soon find ourselves unable to make decisions about our children's education, obey Scripture's commands concerning their discipline, bring to term our unborn babies with genetic deficiencies, and on it goes.
And of course, I won't miss the opportunity to point out...
it's these same civil servants who use our tax dollars to protect the slaughter of our nation's unborn children. Over one and a quarter million of them each year while they grandstand with the UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child.
It used to be "the louder he talked of his honor, the faster I counted my spoons." Today it should be, "The louder they talk of our rights, the quicker we count our freedoms."
