Parents are demanding the State of New Jersey stop interfering with their authority and influence in their child’s life. Public school mandates are dictated ad nauseum by the current Legislative or Executive branch of state government.
Sexual ideology mandated.
Parents have frequently protested, sent letters to legislators, and put pressure on local school boards. These “momma bear” acts are making a difference. The NJGOP is becoming more outspoken in their messaging that they ‘support parents over politics’. Without question, pollsters and consultants realize parents want their kids back.
Here are some ideas what people of faith can do on behalf of their children:
- Parents, consider homeschooling. New Jersey is one of the least restrictive states in the nation when it comes to home school regulations. For more information about homeschooling, please visit our friends at the Home School Legal Defense Association.
- Pastors, consider launching a home school co-op at your church. Teachers, would you consider tutoring students in your church for free? This can help assist parents who feel the public school system is no longer inclusive to their family and sense that it may be medically harmful to their children. Many churches have the facilities and professionals to offer parents an option that works for them. This real felt need of working-class families can be met by the Church.
- Volunteer your time to help pro-family candidates win elections this year. From school board races to legislative seats, a change in leadership is often decided by the grassroots getting out the vote. Only 37% of registered voters participated in the last gubernatorial election back in 2017.
In the previous legislative election in 2019, some districts only had 28% turnout! Take, for example, Legislative District 2 (parts of Atlantic County). There, current State Assembly incumbents mandated transgender lessons in kindergarten. They then voted to remove the religious exemption for vaccinations, and extended Governor Murphy’s emergency powers until January 2022. To get elected, these Assembly members received only 23,211 votes out of 154,644 registered voters! Tragically, even though 72% of registered voters did not choose them, they have been casting votes for years that undermined parental authority because they won with 28% of overall possible votes. This should not be.
Please continue to mobilize and respectfully express your views. In the final analysis, we are responsible before God for our child’s education, and we can make a difference who governs our families.
Protecting your family,
