Judge Not...

You know, if you're going to start targeting activist judges... here's a good place to start.

I wonder how many Christian homeschoolers are agitating to reverse this decision?

This does not bode well for freedom of religion. Theocracy wasn't so great for the 10 million witches murdered during the great witch hunts. Wonder why these far-righters never seem to understand that it isn't just their own freedom that is at issue?

There is one advantage here, however. The judge in question is elected, so his ruling, though indefensible, has the potential of helping speed his exit at the polls.

No, I am not so optimistic as to believe that it will have a great impact, or necessarily the desired one, but the greater danger is in the appelate courts and state and federal supreme courts. This will, however, probably prevent his ever rising to an appointed decision. Meanwhile, we're likely to see a reversal on appeal.

Lillet, since you ask in particular about the reaction of Christian homeschoolers, the ones I know are not amused by this guy. Some of them are discussing his ruling (and the implications of it for parental freedom, or lack thereof)on their blogs.

Amanda,

Thanks so much for your comment. I hope you didn't think I was making a dig at you, because I wasn't. I really enjoy all your home life posts and am hoping to homeschool our kids as well, as you know. I'd be very interested to read other people's opinions on this, and think it is an issue that could really unite people of differing beliefs.
