Bl. Pope John Paul gave ALL families, not just Catholic/Christian families, their charter rights, a copy can be found at: http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/pontifical_councils/family/documents/rc_pc_family_doc_19831022_family-rights_en.html
As the Pope teaches, 3D: the family, a natural society, exists prior to the State or any other community, and possesses inherent rights which are inalienable;
When an American President or a Canadian Premier seeks to invade the sanctity of the family, such as stating by law what parents may/may not teach their children, such action is evil, destructive and is the very type of action which spreads ever more dangerous anger throughout the land.
In Article 5 of the Charter the Holy Father reminds us that: Since they have conferred life on their children, parents have the original, primary and inalienable right to educate them; hence they must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children.
Listen up government warriors against the family: that inalienable right means to educate their children in conformity with the parents’ own moral and religious convictions, and includes the right to choose the specific schools or other means necessary to teach their children in the faith of the family.
The Church herself is a family, Christianity in general is a family and so when a President seeks to force Catholic institutions to subsidize in any way medical procedures or drugs whose sole purpose is to murder unborn children then such a President has chosen not to wage war on an institution alone but to wage war against God, the creator and sustainer of life, to throw the gauntlet down before Christ, to insult the Holy Spirit.
Those government leaders referred to herein are waging war against every citizen’s religious liberty, which includes the freedom to be a non-believer, and it is a slippery slope for if government can do that, and if government can make it a crime in the sanctity of the home for parents to teach their children according to their faith – then the question must be asked: why do we wage war against the Taliban? Are they not already, to the extreme, doing what American and Canadian politicos are doing?
This Lent already are we not experiencing the prophecy of Jesus: “….you will be hated because of Me….many will turn from the faith and will betray and hate each other….but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved..”[cf. Mt.24:4-14]
