JUDGE CONDEMNS GIRL FOR "VIGOROUS" CHRISTIAN FAITH 08/28/2009

A 10-year-old homeschool girl described as "well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level" has been told by a New Hampshire court official to attend a government school because she was too "vigorous" in defense of her Christian faith, reports WorldNetDaily.
The court appointed guardian of the home schooled child said the girl "would be best served by exposure to a public school setting" and "different points of view at a time when she must begin to critically evaluate multiple systems of belief ... in order to select, as a young adult, which of those systems will best suit her own needs."

Alliance Defense Fund attorney John Anthony Simmons is appealing the case. He said, "The court is essentially saying that the evidence shows that, socially and academically, this girl is doing great, but her religious beliefs are a bit too sincerely held and must be sifted, tested by, and mixed among other worldviews. This is a step too far for any court to take."

The court feels the child should be exposed to other ideas, rather than just the Christian views of her mother.

Would the court rule that Muslim children should be exposed to Christian beliefs?
