Farris opposed to a free society

Apparently Farris is opposed to a society where everyone gets along.

Farris notes that this notion that state educational dictates trump those of faith and family comes directly from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which mandates (Article 29) that their educational experience prepare children “for responsible life in a free society, in the spirit of understanding, peace, tolerance, equality of sexes, and friendship among all peoples, ethnic, national and religious groups and persons of indigenous origin….”

It's ironic that he is complaining about being persecuted, when by his own words he wants to be free to persecuted those whose beliefs differ from his.

And what are those values? Farris lists just a handful of the most “dangerous” to an evolving society: the beliefs that “homosexuality is a sin,” that men “should be the leaders of their families,” that “Jesus is the only way to God,” and that “all other religions are false.”

I fear for our right to Freedom of Religion if Farris and his ilk ever gain control of our government.
