<  <  What do you do if your mother and father do not want honor? Are you still
obligated to honor them according to the law "Honor your mother and Father>  >

The accepted law is that a PARENT and a TEACHER can forego their honor; by
contrast a KING may not forego his honor. (Cf Rambam Laws of Learning 5:11,
Kiddushin 32, Rambam Rebellious Elders 6:8)
