Supreme Court marriage ruling
Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,
This morning, the Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. This decision has the potential to affect the rights of parents, families, and others.
We believe the right to homeschool is for everybody. Families can teach their children what they believe is right about marriage, according to their conscience. And we will defend their right to do so.
The legal and social pressure from this decision is going to be extraordinary, most likely starting in the areas of business and public education.
What might this look like? Public schools may be forced to be philosophically compliant with this decision. Children will be taught that there is only one way to view marriage and the family. We believe that families are going to seek educational alternatives that allow them to teach their children according to their conscience.
Consequently, homeschooling will grow. And as it grows, those who wish to impose philosophical restraints on homeschooling will increase their efforts to force us to comply.
HSLDA will fight to keep homeschooling free from philosophical controls, and maintain the rights of families to teach their children according to their conscience.
