Another German family attacked

Details here.

I just don't know what to think about all this any more. In some ways it sounds like a very bad story that's gotten blown up out of proportion. The German government says North Americans have got it all wrong: that the Busekros family story isn't at all about their homeschooling, bla bla (and of course not about the fact that they're Christians), it's about mental health or child abuse or whatever.

But what I see is people banging on doors and taking other peoples' kids; or not taking them (in this case) but still insisting that they don't belong to their parents anymore.

Uncle Eric would say that's the power of the blackjack. (Just because someone gives you the political or physical power to do that doesn't make it right.)

And that's not good for anyone's mental health.

And this is supposed to ease our minds? That they can label Christian homeschooling as child abuse or a mental health problem seems to be the crux of the alarm.

Can I cry? Can I throw up? Can I choke somebody? I really feel like doing any one of those things, just thinking about this inhumanity.
