New Hampshire Court orders Christian homeschooled girl to attend public school
A Christian homeschool girl in New Hampshire has been ordered into government-run public school for having "sincerely held" religious beliefs -- and the Alliance Defense Fund is troubled by the ruling.

The case involves divorced couple Martin Kurowski and Brenda Voydatch and their 10-year-old daughter, Amanda. The couple split in 1999 when they were living in Massachusetts, and the proceedings moved to New Hampshire after Voydatch relocated to that state with her daughter in 2002.

Although Voydatch has primary custody over Amanda, both parents agreed to a parenting plan that included joint decision-making responsibility. A court-appointed guardian served as a mediator.

A source of contention between the parents has been the mother's decision to home school Amanda since first grade. Amanda's father believes she should be sent to public school, while the mother is adamant about home schooling. ...

Since the constitution of the u.s. doesn't exactly cover this issue isn't it a state law issue? Doesn't the father have any rights here at all? I feel he does.

This little girl is a hero in my book! I pray that the Lord Jesus will continue to grow her in a mature relationship with Him! There is a whole line of Christians before now that have stood before the courts of man and proclaimed the gospel, and she has shown more boldness that many of us!

So-called "homeschool" laws are irrelevant to the Christian. They are very relevant to "Christians" who sacrifice their children to the state father.

Neil, your brought up an interesting thought and it did some time after the Constitution was signed to disestablish the state churches of several of the former colonies, q.v., Separation of church and state in the United State. Anyway, for the country at large some useful information, Links To State Laws & Organizations For Homeschoolers and for Nebraska in particular, Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home.

John Y., one place where public schools excel over private ones is when compared to Catholic parochial schools, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.

The judges who force parents to "educate" their children contrary to the parents' conscience and convictions is a gross violation of our freedoms. The alarming and very concerning aspect to this is how the "educated" and social engineers in our society today are doing all they can to make all children go through the godless indoctrination system called public education. Christ is absent in these hallways and classrooms, and the enemy knows it.

Now the "officials" know when someone (and their children) is too "religious" and how to "balance" this out with a little atheism and exposure to other ways of thinking...like REJECTING THE TRUTH.

It is not enough that they have abandoned God's revelation to man...but they must have others join them in their unbelief.

All in the disguise of "helping" the children, since they are being "harmed" by such strict convictions and faith in the home.

This kind of thing must be stopped before it goes any further. We must oppose tyrrany. Tyrants sound so wise...so informed...so reasonable. Freedom is too precious, too costly, to give up so easily. And once it is gone, it is difficult to regain.

The people behind this are pursuing the goals of the UN convention on the Rights of the Child. Wake up America.

What does the US Constitution have to do with this case? The 1st Amendment says, "Congress shall make no law...", not "States shall make no law." Otherwise, the several states could not have had established churches at the time.

That may be what judges do, but it isn't their job to interpret the Constitution, since they too are subject to it. Their job is to interpret laws in light of what the Constitution says.

That's the key, right there. Whether publically, privately, or home-schooled, virtually all of my more successful peers had parents who were unified in their persuit of what Mark wrote here.

Agreed. I'm going to try my best with the kids that I teach. It's a bit strange here from an Obamaton's perspective in that I'm in a Christian school, but I'm still not to talk about my religious beliefs. At the same time we are not being asked to push the Homosexual or Evolutionary agendas either, so that is a plus. Either way, I think the students here care more about their school than their Obmanation counterparts and it seems the parents expect a high level of work from both the students and the faculty. I know I'm lazy at heart, so I better stop being a sluggard for once in my life

It appears that the girl's old man is insane and psychotic for wanting his daughter to be schooled in the Satanic public school system instead of being homeschooled. And the court is violating the First Amendment rights of the girl and her Mother by insisting that the girl be schooled in the Satanic public school system.

More of the story...

"10-year-old's 'vigorous' defense of her faith condemned by judge"

The First Amendment - Ratified 12/15/1791.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Aren't Judges supposed to uphold the Constitution?

Welcome to the New America! So far, I am not impressed.
