This time it is five “well-educated” siblings who have been placed in state custody. The state has not yet removed them from their home, but has the authority to do so at any time. The parents can only regain legal custody of their children by placing them in a public school.
The judge had concluded that the children were well-educated, but accused the parents of failing to provide their children with an education in a public school. The court noted that one of the daughters expressed the same opinions as her father, showing they have not had the chance to develop “independent” personalities.
See the subtle anti- parent bias? The Scripture tells fathers to train up their children in God’s ways, to speak God’s word to them when they come in, go out, lie down, and rise up. This is God’s way of ensuring that the biblical culture of the parents is transferred to the next generation. But German judges, who know more than God on the wisdom of these matters, conclude that a child who expresses the same opinion as her father has a stunted personality, which can only be remedied by immediate insertion into the nearest public school.
The EU has already proven it will stand with the German courts against the homeschoolers. Neither the EU nor the German government will tolerate unapproved (independent) thinking among the next generation of Europeans. Unless you are a Muslim immigrant, of course.
More letters to the German embassy are obviously required.
