    The document does not specify who, whom, or what you have the right to worship, because it is simply not necessary to define such. If it were to do so, it would have to become more complicated, meaning a child could potentially not be able to understand it.

    It gives the king too much latitude for interpretation....perhaps by design.

    It is the responsibility of the parents of those children to educate them.

    Then the child does not receive an education, simple as that. It's not hard to homeschool these days.

    For some people it actually is hard to 'homeschool' and for some folk they really shouldn't try to anyway...

    Good to see your compassion and understanding coming to the fore again though!

    Well this is fun isn't it?

    You do realize that Homeschooling can be done with minimal interaction of the parents, right? You know, with computer programs?

    Serious question here and not one with any malicious intent. Is this how you were 'taught'?

    Actually no, I grew up going to private Christian schools, except for the last three years of high school, which was a public school.

    Okay, I'll just level with you from my perspective. You sound like a very indoctrinated youth who doesn't have much experience outside of what you've been 'taught' to think in very restricted boundaries and hence the 'cold' aspect you have in regards to people in general. I hope you overcome that as you certainly aren't stupid.
