New Hampshire Courts Declare War On Christians

A 10 year old girl in New Hampshire was ordered by the courts to discontinue her home schooling and attend a government run public school.

The child’s parents divorced in 1999 shortly after her birth and she has been home schooled since first grade. The child attends supplemental classes at public school as well as extra curricular activities. She is described as “well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level”.

So what’s the problem?

In the process of reevaluating the parental plan, a result of the divorce, a guardian ad litem appointed to help evaluate the situation concluded she “appeared to reflect her mother’s rigidity on questions of faith” and that the girl’s interests “would be best served by exposure to a public school setting” and “different points of view at a time when she must begin to critically evaluate multiple systems of belief … in order to select, as a young adult, which of those systems will best suit her own needs.”

So, take the child out of home schooling because it is too “one sided” and place her in a government run school that totally excludes anything Christian and is just as rigidly exclusionary of Christianity as the child’s Mother is in her own faith.

In New Hampshire, parents are no longer able to teach their children their own values an favor of a state indoctrination. It seems the Constitution and Bill of Rights does not apply to New Hampshire.

According to court documents, the guardian ad litem earlier had told the mother, “If I want her in public school, she’ll be in public school.” So the power of the state is without bounds. An anti-Christian bigot is offended by the child’s Christian values and has the power to sway the New Hampshire courts into the same discriminatory and unconstitutional anti-Christian Crusade.

One wonders if the courts would take the same views if the parents favor atheism or a non-Christian religion. That is doubtful.

The Alliance Defense Fund has stepped in to correct this horrendous decision by the New Hampshire courts. In papers filed by the ADF, they charge:

“The order assumes that because Amanda has sincerely held Christian beliefs, there must be a problem that needs solving. It is a parent’s constitutionally protected right to train up their children in the religious beliefs that they hold. It is not up to the court to suggest that a 10-year-old should be ‘exposed’ to other religious views contrary to the faith traditions of her parents. Could it not be that this sharp 10-year-old ‘vigorously’ believes what she does because she knows it to be true? The court’s narrative suggests that 10-year-olds are too young to form opinions and that they are not yet allowed to have sincerely held Christian beliefs,” the ADF said.

“Absent any other clear and convincing evidence justifying the court’s decision, it would appear that the court has indeed taken sides with regard to the issue of religion and has preferred one religious view over another (or the absence of religion). This is impermissible,” the documents said.

The guardian ad litem had an anti-Christian bias, the documents said, telling the mother at one point she wouldn’t even look at homeschool curriculum.

“I don’t want to hear it. It’s all Christian based,” she said.

Court rulings like this have no place in the United States. We can only hope that a country founded on Judaeo-Christian beliefs has not “advanced” so far that we can allow rulings like this to pass for constitutional justice. This judge should be removed from the bench.

    Totally agree that this was a bad decision.

    However, we can no more tar the entire New Hampshire Court system based on this one decision than they can claim ours is full of loons based on some other single ruling.

    In general, New Hampshire is the most libertarian-oriented state in America. http://www.freestateproject.org

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
