Is any freedom more important, more sacred than the right to raise a family without government intrusion?

I am very interested in the predictions he solicited & promises to print at the end of the month.
Instead of a godfather... a statefather.
Unless it’s transgendered.
And Jew haters too.
Scotland needs another William Wallace...
might as well be an asterisk there which states, "the definition of which will be determined/dictated by local, state, and federal authorities."
Just wait until some parent insists on instructing their child on what the Bible teaches about homosexuality. Parents may actually have to leave Scotland in order to have a Christian home for their children.
Scotland of all places. We’d expect this out of China.
