  • No way! There are some real wackos out there, raising their kids to be wackos (am thinking of that family in the news a while back that were KKK). But, they do have that right to raise their kids as they see fit. I just pray the kids realize the truth and come to my side of politics! :-)

  • If it is in their political view to feel entitled to have the government provide for them? then imo, yes.

  • OP here.

    Does someone having an extremist view on any given topic make them a bad parent?

    I've seen it implied here several times over.

    Seems that if you don't go with the flow, you're a bad parent.
