It seems like something out of a sci-fi novel the stuff that comes across mainstream media these days. I never would have thought any American citizen would be willing to trade our sovereignty as a nation in for a U.N. citizenship card. What seemed to be so unthinkable to me just a few years ago is now beginning to be a real threat looming on the horizon. The issue is over American ratification of U.N. treaties. One such treaty could quite literally be “the end of the world as we know it” for America.
See this excerpt from WorldNetDaily.com:
“What terrifies U.S. homeschool education experts is the authorities’ decision to cite the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as a legal argument.
That 1990s-era document was ratified quickly by 192 nations worldwide, but not the United States or Somalia. In Somalia, there was then no recognized government to do the formal recognition, and in the United States there’s been opposition to its power.“
“Although signed under the Clinton Administration, the U.S. Senate never has ratified the treaty, largely because of conservatives’ efforts to point out it would create that list of rights which primarily would be enforced against parents.“
“The U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause requires that “all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land,” the HSLDA said.
That would mean any state law relating to child custody, the family, education, adoption, child pornography and dozens of other issues could be nullified in an instant, the group said.
Under the protocol, children would be vested with freedom of expression, so that “any attempts (by parents) to prevent their children from interacting with material parents deem unacceptable is forbidden.”
Reaching to the far end of that logic would produce this result: your 6-year-old wants Playboy magazine, or even to visit a Playboy club, and you pay for it.
Parents who fail would be subjected to “identification, reporting, referral, investigation, treatment, and follow-up.“
With our hands tied behind our backs, our parental rights taken over by the “U.N.”, and our eyes blindfolded by “good intentions”… it seems we are now only more than willing to “walk the plank” as a nation.
Can we wake up and stop the slide off the slippery slope before it is too late for this nation’s children? Only God knows. May we SEEK HIM IN PRAYER over this issue!
Revelation 3:2 – Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.
