More of the same in Germany's anti-homeschooling movement

3 families face fines, frozen accounts
Homeschooling parents plead for prayer for 'difficulties'

"We are turning to all believing gospel Christians and Baptists in the CIS,Europe and America," the three sets of parents wrote. "We are three families of the church in Bischofswerda, and we homeschool our children. For that reason, we had to deal with numerous difficulties with the authorities."

The families cited fines of about $4,000 for the Harder and Krautter families and about $2,500 for the Schneider family – so far.

"Measures such as freezing our bank accounts, compulsory mortgages, insolvency of our self-employment are making our lives difficult," the letter said. "Even the custody of our children was to be taken from us, but GOD prevented it."

Now more fines are being imposed, and "even our homes are to be sold for that," the letter said.

"We ask that you pray for us and that you make
your voice heard before the secular powers," said the letter.

Meanwhile, in related News, Germany is hiring a convicted pedophle as a Kindergarden teacher.

Wonder how long it will be before we as Americans face the same sort of thing. Not long I imagine...
