Parental rights disappearing in Germany

If there is one thing that has always been a foundational principle of law in our western democracy, it has been the right of parents to make decisions regarding their children. Alas, this bedrock right is now under attack.

Lifesitenews is promoting a story about eight German parents who are going to jail because the held their children home from state sponsored sex education classes. It seems that in Germany, the state has decided that it possesses the right to make these decisions instead of parents.

This should raise alarms throughout the western world, especially among Christians. Time and time again we are told that we do not have the right to "impose" our views on others - and for the most part, Christians have respected this societal convention. With this decision in Germany, it is clear that the forces of secularism do not believe that they need offer the same right to Christians.

This is just another example of a "canary in the coal mine"; a harbinger of what awaits us in North America if we do not start to militantly defend our principles and rights in the face of the secular project. We can no longer take for granted that these foundational principles will sustain our rights - for the forces of secularism are now undermining these same said principles.
