Three families have written and signed a letter addressed to Christians worldwide to pray for them as the German state has imposed exorbitant fines on them, frozen their bank accounts, and threatened to remove their children from parental custody, all because they homeschool their children.
These are different families than the Brause family, from whom the courts removed legal custody of their children, and the Busekros family, whose 15- year- old daughter Melissa (Broken link, April 12, 2007) was forcibly removed from their home and taken to a psychiatric ward. Melissa remains in state custody and is imploring the international community for her release so she can return home.
We can help by praying for these five families, as well as all Christian homeschoolers in Germany. We can call our representatives to ask them what repercussions the United States has planned against Germany because of these Nazi- like human rights abuses. We can express our displeasure of the oppressive treatment of these innocent families to the German embassy in Washington. Let us let our voices be heard on their behalf.
