A PRO-NAZI mother has been banned from taking her six-year-old child to political rallies or encouraging the child to share her ultra right-wing views, according to a report in The Courier-Mail.
In a case before the Family Court known as Hoover and Hoover, Deputy Chief Justice John Faulks ordered the woman be banned from viewing Nazi websites when the child is in her care and that she be restrained from inciting racial hatred.
In another Family Court case heard in Brisbane late last year, a father who was involved in the campaign for an independent West Papua was requested not to take the couple's twin five-year-olds to political rallies.
In 2007, a Family Court judge ruled that a mother's previous involvement with skinhead culture was not evidence that the child was at risk.
Should the courts be able to tell people how to raise their child and if so, where does it end? Should the courts be able to tell parents not to expose their child to extremist religion such as fundamentalist Christianity or Islam? If the courts can tell a father not to take his children to political rallies for an independent West Papua should they also do the same to parents who take their children to environmental or anti-abortion protests?
Is it a fundamental right of parents to be able to instill their children with the values of their choosing?
What do other ASFers think about this?
