If you want to raise your child to be a Christian and or simply to be of moral character - you will face new challenges. The government is poised to tell you when you can discipline, what can be said in church and what "type" of beliefs your child will be taught to accept. We must unite and we must pay attention to the community and governmental influences our children will have to navigate. This is a very important example of their attacks. If they can limit our rights as parents - they can change the direction of your child's life.
Parental rights focus of amendment push

ParentalRights.org has launched a campaign to amend the U.S. Constitution to protect -- you guessed it -- parental rights.
It is believed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will soon recommend that the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child Treaty be incorporated into U.S. law.
Jim Bently, executive director of ParentalRights.org, describes the treaty as an assault on parental rights -- and that is why his organization is launching a campaign aimed at amending the U.S. Constitution in order to protect parental rights. Bently says a large grassroots effort will be needed to accomplish the task. "So we designed what we call a '10 and 2' program," he shares. "Rather than just sending out the typical list of petitions, we're going to ask people to sign up as a 10-and-2 rep."
As a "10-and-2 rep," one will be asked to get 10 petition signatures, get three post cards signed -- one for their congressman and one for each state senator -- letting them know that someone has signed in favor of the amendment. Reps will also ask for a $1 donation from every person signing the petition, and then recruit two more people to start the process all over again. "It was designed for simplicity," says Bently. "It was designed as a way that people could look at it and say, wow, this is not an open-ended type of commitment, [but] this is a very specific thing that I can do."
According to the family advocate, the time commitment is minimal. "We expect it to take the average person two to four hours," he states. More information on the "10-and-2 Campaign" and the Parental Rights Amendment can be found at ParentalRights.org. In the history of the Constitution only 27 amendments have been ratified.
Dear Heavenly Father, please help us.
