German police seize children from homeschooling family
Catholic World News - August 30, 2013
Police and social workers raided the home of a homeschooling family in Darnstadt, Germany, on August 29, forcibly removing four children from their parents.
A German court had given the state legal custody of the children because the parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, continued to defy laws requiring the children’s attendance in state-approved schools.

Perhaps, while we're at it, we could lob a few cruise missiles at Germany.

Unless steps are taken soon which compel all three branches of our government to restore and defend the Constitution, this will happen in our nation as well.

"A German court had given the state legal custody of the children because the parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, continued to defy laws requiring the children’s attendance in state-approved schools." These laws were first imposed by the Hitler regime but never rescinded by any post-1945 government in either Bonn or Berlin. In effect, the court is enforcing a Nazi diktat when it robs these parents of their children.

Göbbels may be gone, but his policies live on.

And we are going to send the German family who asked for asylum back to this?
