How Can the “Evangelical Right” Promote Parental Rights While at the Same Time Supporting Child Trafficking?

How Can the “Evangelical Right” Promote Parental Rights While at the Same Time Supporting Child Trafficking? by Brian Shilhavy, Editor, Health Impact News

The Parental Rights Foundation sent out a newsletter to its subscribers last week from their president, William A. Estrada, with an article titled:

Parents Are Winning. That’s Why Opponents Are Turning Us Into Bogeymen.

The article was also published in The Daily Signal.

It was a response to an article published in Salon by Kathryn Joyce titled:

“Parental rights” started on the Christian fringe — now it’s the GOP’s winning issue

Estrada wrote:

Are “parental rights” some secret Bat Signal for right-wing evangelicals? The answer is yes, if you are writing for Salon. In a recent article, author Kathryn Joyce argued that “parental rights” is really the latest attempt of right-wing evangelicals to win elections.

Joyce has a long history of trying to pin blame on right-wing evangelicals. She has previously attacked international adoptions and large families only if they’re Christians (not any other faith, or lack thereof). So, it is not particularly surprising that now that parents from across the political spectrum are speaking up, she’s ready to blame it all on her favorite scapegoat: right-wing evangelicals.

Except it’s false: Parents from across every racial, demographic, ethnic, and political background are fighting against bureaucrats over who will decide basic questions regarding the education, upbringing, and care of their children.

It’s not just right-wing evangelicals. It’s parents from across the political, religious (and nonreligious), and demographic spectrums. (Source.)

Having covered the issue of “parental rights” for going on 8 years now, mainly through our platform, this is a topic I am very familiar with.

And while I agree with Estrada’s assertion that the parental rights issues cross ideological lines and should not be strictly a “right-wing evangelical” issue, I am also familiar with Kathryn Joyce’s work, and in particular her criticisms of the evangelical right’s position on international adoptions, and the whole “Orphan Care” movement among evangelicals, which is basically a child trafficking movement, because it is mainly funded by the U.S. Government.

“Orphan care” includes not only international adoptions, but participation in the U.S. Foster Care system, the #1 pipeline for pedophiles and child sex trafficking.

We have published many articles on this very evil system called “child welfare” which includes Child Protection Services, Foster Care, and Adoption, and this Government child trafficking system can only exist today with the help of Evangelical churches and organizations, such as the Christian Alliance for Orphans, and many of their partners, like Focus on the Family.
