German Govt. Looking Back to Totalitarian Past

0 comments | 1:46 am | top |
Concerned at any form of teaching which contradicts the ideology of "The State" of Germany, the German Government has banned home-education as well as enforcing a number of other anti-family, ultimately anti-freedom restrictions on its citizens. This is a prime case of a government being scared of its people and acting preemptively to silence objectors. LifeSiteNews reports,

Alliance Defense Fund attorneys are representing two German parents in an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights filed Tuesday. The two parents were convicted under German law when they chose to educate their child at home on the subject of sexuality rather than allow her to participate in a four-day "sexual education" course and related stage production at her school, both of which taught views of sexuality in conflict with the family's Christian faith.

"Parents, not the government, are the ones ultimately responsible for making educational choices for their children," said ADF Legal Counsel Roger Kiska. - LifeSiteNews 22/4/09

I completely concur with the sentiments of Roger Kiska, and with the actions of the girl's parents. The parents have the inalienable duty and inherent right to make choices for their own children. They did not remove their daughter from any other school programs or classes.

(Obviously there are cases where parents are abusive and in these situations the children should be passed over to the care of relatives or the local community.)

It is bad enough that Germany has compulsory school education for all children, but to include such extra-academic subjects as sex-education, and force children to sit through it - whatever their convictions - or the beliefs of their parents, is patently unjust.
