Parental Rights: Legalize homeschooling in Germany
Germany’s educational system is turning into a socialistic forced re-education camp. In Berlin 1st graders are being taught that a family consists of a man and a man or a woman with a woman. They call it “gender mainstreaming” and they are misleading young souls and deceive them with sinful ways of life presenting them as an alternative lifestyle. That is what happens when a society no longer has a final authority – the word of God – and is left to the imagination of their evil heart (Jer. 3:16). That is why America cannot afford to become an ObamaNation for another 4 years. With God’s help we can change to the right. That is why it is smart to consider abolishing the department of education that was just stated in 1980. American education was at its best when there were small schools in communities and textbooks based on a Christian worldview were used.
Now there is a petition out there to a particular German state where Baptists have been imprisoned because they refused to let their elementary school children participate in subversive sex education program that were anti-family, anti-marriage and anti-abstinence.
Since the days of Adolf Hitler’s education law in 1938 homeschooling has not been allowed in Germany but there exists a compulsory school attendance law in every German state. Those who homeschool in Germany have faced outrageous fines in excess of $10,000, had their homes raided by police, lost custody of their children, had their children taken from them by arrogant social workers. Children were removed from homes by social workers and put into government custody. Parents in the state of Northrhine-Westphalia have been repeatedly imprisoned for homeschooling their children. Homeschooling families have fled Germany and gone to Austria, Norway, Britain and the US. In fact, one family was granted asylum in the state of Tennessee. The states of Tennessee and Georgia released unanimous resolutions calling on Germany to respect parental rights such as the right of parents to guide the upbringing and education of their own children. But in Germany children have become a ward of the state and government control of childrearing and education is increasing through legal changes under the Merkel and Schröder administration. We must reverse this trend and stop the criminalization of traditional family in Germany. No parent should be imprisoned for homeschooling. No parent should be imprisoned for taking their children out of licentious and questionable “sex education” programs. Education is a state matter in Germany, so this petition is addressed to the governer (Ministerpräsidentin) of the state of Northrhine-Westphalia where I live and which is most notorious for repeatedly imprisoning Christian mothers and father for homeschooling or releasing their children from classes that oppose their Christian views. Please sign the petition below!
A Christian woman from Georgia commented on the German developments: “I find it really sad that the children there are subjected to that kind of teaching. I don’t understand how schools can teach against Christianity.” She wanted to be added to the list of petitioners. Please get involved now and share this news with others.
