I’m curious what peoples’ thoughts on this are.
Personally, I would say that, as wrong as the mother was, CPS has no right to remove her children based on her beliefs.
If they’re trying to argue that raising your children in an environment where they’re taught hatred is abuse, then they’d better start removing the children of all those fundamentalists now before they’re taught to hate teh gay. Oh noes.
I also like her statement:
A black person has a right to say black power or black pride and yet they’re turning around on us and saying we’re racists and bigots and neo-Nazis because we say white pride. It’s hypocrisy at its finest.
This is all too true. The issue, perhaps, is that white pride is typically associated with violence and hatred towards other ethnic groups… but there is no evidence here of that. They removed her children based purely on the fact that she was proud of her heritage… they didn’t even show that she was teaching them to hate (so even that argument hasn’t been proven to be valid).
So yeah. They haven’t shown abuse or neglect in any way.
I feel like the government is in the wrong in this particular case.
