Please comment on your views pertaining to parental/children rights (attach statement if needed):
Our judeochristian heritage upon which this nation was founded and which is described in the Bible teaches that children are the sole responsibility of the parents. Also corporal punishment has always been the prerogative of the parents, and it is a travesty when the government punishes parents and intimidates them for non lethal corporal punishment. I have had parents approach me for advice on childhood injuries because they are afraid to go to an emergency room for help lest the authorities be called in and take their children away from them.
I would have you know too that prior to 1929 children were routinely given to the custody of the father, and that if only one parent is to raise children it is best done by the father. But I would go a step before that and recommend that we return the to divorce laws before 1960 which made divorce so difficult that parents were essentially forced to work out their differences and raise their children together. The overriding purpose of marriage is not to insure that the husband and wife are happy, but to provide for the care and raising of the children.
Optional: Are you a child of divorce, divorced parent, or have an immediate
family member involved in divorce with children? Yes _____ No _XXXX
