New Hampshire Court orders Christian homeschooled girl to attend public school
[LEFT]A Christian homeschool girl in New Hampshire has been ordered into government-run public school for having “sincerely held” religious beliefs.
[LEFT]According to ADF allied attorney John Anthony Simmons, the court acknowledges that the girl in question is doing well socially and academically, but he adds that the court went too far when they determined that the girl’s Christian faith was a “bit too sincerely held and must be sifted, tested by, and mixed among other worldviews.”[/LEFT]
