Not rightly so.<quoted text>
I'm not "painting" you as irrational, you are. However, you may find that parents have a somewhat different point of view on "parental rights", and rightly so.
Do you have the right to deny your child food? Healthcare? An education? Do you have the right to beat your child? Nope.
You know why? Because your child is a citizen with rights of their own.
Your rights do not supersede the rights of the child, nor do they supersede the rights of the society as a whole.
We give you WIDE LATITUDE for f up your child for life with your religious beliefs and rampant ignorance, however when you fail it falls upon US to pay for your mistakes. Therefore, you do not have full authority to fail.
Don't like it? Move to Iran.
