Pope Francis on education

Or, reason to homeschool # 759484786404987161524337

In the Bible, God presents himself as a teacher. “I myself taught Ephraim to walk, I myself took them by the arm,” it says. A believer is obliged to raise his children. Every man and every woman has a right to educate their children in their religious values. When a government deprives children of this formation, it can lead to cases like Nazism, when children were indoctrinated with values which were alien to the ones held by their parents. Totalitarianism tends to take over education to feather its own nest…

In the west, the totalitarian vultures have come home to roost, and they're eating the souls of our children. 

From a book written when he was Cardinal Borgoglio.
