Re: Into the lion's den

I'd rather see some evidence from a historical source than a vested interest.

If the point is our young are basically an empty canvas at birth and, as they grow, their beliefs are strongly influenced by their culture, parents, surroundings, etc.....well, no kidding!

Re: Into the lion's den

It DID happen, and the Romans DID require people to return to the town of birth for the census.

Well, on values, it does not depend. They are none of your business.

Again, a parent teaching a child their values is not abuse. You might not like those values, but, so what.

Re: Into the lion's den

I have to say that I fundamentally disagree with this; I think it is the job of the parents to protect a child just as it is the job of the parent to teach a child. Subcontracting those responsibilities out to the state are causing a breakdown in [more]
