  •  Great post, thanks! (4+ / 0-)

    I love the real-life examples that you provided. Funny how it is so obvious to us that the truth should have precedence, but if a redstater were here he would likely agree that the Mom can tell her kids what she wants and it shouldn't be contradicted. Mom is the ultimate "Authoritarian" figure after all (next to Dad that is.)

    •  Of course no parent can be allowed (6+ / 0-)

      to teach their kids that God does not exist, or that communism is superior to capitalism. Or -- the one true god forbid -- that there is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet! Quel horrerur!

      And thus the basic hypocrisy of the conservative position is revealed. "Parents must be allowed to control their children's education in every detail!" Unless such education contradicts my holy ideology in which case child services must be called in to break up this family and send the children to a church school where they will be taught the truth (that is to say my religion) and beaten until they believe it. That's family values!
