Video: Elder M. Russell Ballard / World Congress of Families – “Respect the Liberty of Parents in the Moral and Religious Education of Their Children”   Leave a comment

Elder M. Russell Ballard’s keynote speech a few weeks ago at the World Congress of Families pointed out that sometimes, schools and school systems make decisions that are a direct assault on the role of parents in raising their children.  (Hear one poignant story at minute 8:30)  He also pointed out that most nations, including the United States, signed a document agreeing to respect the liberty of parents. (Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights states that signers agree that parents have the right “to ensure the moral and religious education of their children in conformity with their own convictions.)
