I think the following seems to sum this one up nicely:
[quote]Thornton believes Germany's war on homeschooling is just a part of Europe's war against Christianity.
The moral decay of Europe is just appalling...
Germany Declares War on Homeschoolers By Dale Hurd CBN News Senior Reporter August 8, 2008
CBNNews.com - Nuremberg, GERMANY - It certainly looks as if the German government has declared open season on Germany's tiny homeschooling community.
CBN News was first to bring the story of Melissa Busekros to American television last year. The homeschooled teenager was snatched from her family by police in a SWAT style raid and put in a psychiatric ward. After an international uproar, Melissa was returned to her family.
But other homeschooling families face even worse persecution. More and more parents are being sent to prison. Heavy fines are leaving homeschooling families destitute. And more and more children have been taken into state custody.
Just wondering if the Muslim communities in Germany are actually sending their kids to these schools where "it's not just mixed swimming but mixed showering after the swim class is over and mixed locker rooms and then they leave and go to the next class."
Seems to me they wouldn't go for that kind of thing, either. Is it just Christians who homeschool who are being persecuted? And what are the Muslims who live in Germany doing? I just can't imagine them sending their kids to such a place.
