Mike Farris is heading up, an effort to protect the child-parent relationship from the long arm of the government:

Only a constitutional amendment will ensure that the courts of our nation protect the fundamental right of parents to raise their children. And only a constitutional amendment will override international law that seeks to undermine the parental role. As the only complete solution to the danger confronting the child-parent relationship, the Parental Rights Amendment will place current Supreme Court doctrine protecting parental rights into the explicit text of the Constitution. Only a constitutional amendment completely eliminates all threats to the child-parent relationship. It is the only comprehensive response to the attack on parental rights across our nation.

I have a name for such amendments. They’re called “Sky Is Blue” amendments, because while it makes perfect and total sense to most of us, to our legal system we have to spell it out in clear and precise terms that the sky is — indeed — blue.
