Parental Rights Before State Rights

Parental Rights Before State Rights.

Parental rights precede State rights.

This happiness is not restricted to material and earthly enjoyment, but reaches to everything conducive to joy, pleasure, contentment of mind and soul, in this world and the next, if the father believes in a future life.
