Parents and Children Deserve Better (January 12, 2022)

“For He established a testimony in Jacob And appointed a law in Israel, Which He commanded our fathers That they should teach them to their children, That the generation to come might know…” – Psalm 78:5-6a

Remember when the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice mobilized the FBI and US Attorneys to investigate parents after the infamous National School Boards Association (NSBA) compared concerned parents to domestic terrorists and invoked the PATRIOT Act?

Emails obtained by Parents Defending Education (turned over after a Freedom of Information Act request) reveals that the CEO of the NSBA “told the officers he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cardona.”

The Biden Administration had adamantly maintained that it was merely responding to and relying upon the NSBA’s letter, but this alleged coordination would mean that the Biden Administration actually orchestrated the assault on parents’ rights in education.

The family was the first institution established by God and it was His design that a mother and father, within the permanent commitment of marriage, raise children in the way they should go. Parents are given the duty of teaching and caring for their children.

To the extent that parents rely upon others to assist them in that task, it is the parents who will always bear the ultimate responsibility for raising their children. That is God’s design…

Kentucky legislators have the opportunity, in 2022, to enact legislation that will recognize and reinforce the fundamental rights of parents (in education and elsewhere).

Father, may Your people recognize Your design for the family and the responsibility they have to protect, raise, and teach their children. Give them boldness to stand for God-honoring public policy. May our state legislators protect parents’ fundamental rights. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
