GERMANY CRUSHES PARENTAL RIGHT TO EDUCATE THEIR CHILDREN
Some of you may remember the Wunderlich family, whose children were taken from them in Germany for homeschooling.
The children, aged 7 – 14, were returned to their parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, although they are being forced to send them to Socialist public schools in order to retain custody of their children.
The Wunderlichs desire to teach their children Godly principles, as well as general subjects, but the “iron fist” of Germany insists their children learn socialist-centered ideology, which is against the Wunderichs’ Christian faith.
The kidnapping of the Wunderlich children by government officials was actually against German law; therefore, Germany recently enacted new laws denying parents the right to home educate their children.
These are excerpts of the email Dirk Wunderlich sent to me regarding the new laws:
last year – the 09/11/2013 – one of our Federal Courts has passed a judgment:
As I heard from it for the first time (11/08/2013) over SchuzH (Armin &
Gabriele Eckermann) I was very alarmed. Since that day I try to get a
perfect translation of the most important paragraphs. The worst passages:
> Due to compulsory school attendance the parents have to accept that
> the state, which is responsible for education, acts in place of the
> parents in regards of schooling. Therefore, the parents’ possibility
> to influence their children directly in a pedagogic way is limited to
> the time when the children are not in school. (par. 21)
> …this leads to the consequence that all parents have to accept
> interferences to their religious educational ideas as typical side
> effects of the state’s educational mandate which had been foreseen by
> the constitution. They have to accept compulsory schooling which is
> necessary to implement the state’s educational mandate. The parents
> do not have the right to avoid this. (par. 25)
> …and follows – according to the statement above – a rigid but also
> constitutionally acceptable model idea: The single pupil shall be
> obliged to attend all school lessons, because only a permanent,
> obligatory attendance to the lessons, with the putting of all
> opposing individual preferences, no matter of any kind whatsoever,
> can create that community forming effect, which is aimed to achieve
> with schools and which also legitimizes mainly the introduction of
> compulsory school attendance; (par. 28)
But it’s also said:
> So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is
> near, even at the doors. (Matthew 24:33)
Likewise, the Romeike family fled Germany to the United States for this very reason, to homeschool their children. They were granted political asylum by an immigration judge, only to undergo persecution from the Obama administration. After their asylum was granted, US Attorney General Eric Holder sought to have the Romeikes deported back to Germany, knowing full well that their children would have been taken from them upon arrival in Germany. Due to the diligent efforts of HSLDA staff (HSLDA.org) and the faithful prayers of God’s people, the Romeikes have been granted permanent asylum in the US.
This is prophetic. The Word of God tells us,
“Yes, all who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” 2 Timothy 3:12.
