Catholic World News - January 18, 2012

An influential Swedish politician has asked the country’s government to crack down on home-schooling families.

    Ironic, is it not, that a standard-bearer of the "Liberal Party" insists on suppression of the freedom of parents to educate their children according to their own religious beliefs, to say nothing of her preference for her own "liberal" ideology over some less acceptable ideology. The fallacies and tyranny of liberal ideology are laid bare: all are equal, but some are more equal than others; all values are relative except for the Truth of Ms. Edholm's Liberal ideology.
