"If You Give the Bureaucrats the Children..."

"This notion that the children belong to the state, that their education must be provided for by the state … is inimical at every step to liberty. If you give the bureaucrats the children, you might as well give them everything else as well.”

(J. Gresham Machen, Professor of New Testament at Princeton Seminary between 1906 and 1929 and a leader of the conservative revolt against theological modernism and heterodoxy.)
