My reason for posting this was not about Obama and his administration or was said or wasn't said. IThe post is about the sentence in quotation marks.

"...banning homeschooling is teaching tolerance. "


My question is based solely on thisstatement. Does this statement in quotations about banning homeschooling truly teaching tolerance?


Nor was this post about the Romeike family and their situation. Again, this is about the statement in quotations....

"....banning homeschooling teaches tolerance. "


Do you agree or disagree?

Sorry, I misunderstood. I think banning homeschooling doesn't do anything for or against tolerance. I think you either will teach it to your kids or you won't. The way you school doesn't change your core values.

I'm not too sure that most people out there would know their true core values let alone even recognize them if they saw them. I'm not trying to be mean but I have witnessed too many people say one thing out one side of their mouth and totally say something opposite while also behaving entirely different at the same time.

This. Plenty of people tech their children intolerance regardless of their schooling. I can't tell you the number of times I've heard intolerant remarks from children all over the place. The same goes for tolerance.
I do think that in early childhood ps fosters tolerance because you have children from all different classes and races of society interacting. BUT by middle school they've learned their parents, neighborhood peers, and communities intolerance (or tolerance depending).
Banning hs won't create more tolerance, just as promoting hs won't create more. Only parents, peers, and the active community can help to foster tolerance.

a fear that it will produce young people that can think for themselves and ask inteligent questions. 


Quoting kirbymom:

So that is also my question. Is there a fear about homeschooling hat we don't know about?


Quoting TJandKarasMom:

How does banning anything teach tolerance? If we banned a certain religion,does that teach tolerance? If we banned gay marriage, does that teach tolerance? Obviously the point of our country was for freedoms and to get away from intolerance. So how is banning homeschooling teaching tolerance?

 I agree.  I work so hard to teach my children to be tolarant and look for ways when they say something. 

Like my 7 year old at 3 in walmart asking why the lady at MCD's had a big belly.  I had to explain we do not say that because it might hurt her feelings, maybe she had a baby in her belly, maybe she likes to eat, maybe she is trying to be skinny but we have to be careful of the way she might feel if she hears what we say.

I also buy black, white and asian dolls of different colors and dont make a big deal about it.  I bought them when they were babies, now they choose and if they choose the black barbie, white barbie, or asian barbie I buy it.  It does not matter. 

My husband is Asian Indian and I am white.  We told the kids when they were very little they could choose what color they want to be.  For awhile my now 7 year old said she had pink skin.

I hope to teach my children not to see color.  That people can live different from what we think is what God wants, or believe in a different God it is ok.  We may disagree and tell them our beliefs but you can not force them to be the same as you. Everyone is different and while you may disagree they deserve respect.

I think you ladies are terribly misled about what this case is about. Yes, they violated the law in their home country. Yes, they obviously knew they violated the law. I break many laws every day because I refuse to be burdened with the yoke of laws that violate my basic human right to liberty, a right which USED to be protected by our Constitution and which our forefathers clearly established for citizens when founding our nation. I am quite sure the rest of you break laws daily, whether you know it or not, This case is important because Germany is violating personal freedom and civil rights by making and enforcing the law.

This has NOTHING to do with tolerance. The PS system, Eric Holder, Barry Dunham Davis Soetoro Obama, and the whole socialist left do not want to violate your liberties and take away your children because they can educate them better or because you are not teaching them TOLERANCE. They want your kids because there is little chance you're forcing your kids to drink the Kool-Aid on a daily basis. Wake up. That's what this is about. "They" want the dollars sucked from the taxpayers to indoctrinate your kids so They can keep their broken machine wheezing along a little longer, and breed numb-minded, Kool-Aid drunk, party-line-toeing, little voters.

Don't be blinded and dazzled by the TOLERANCE argument at the front door when the bastards are sneaking in the back door to steal your property and your kids.
