Christians plan global protest against Norway for taking children away from parents due to "religious indoctrination"

Christians Stage Worldwide Protests Against Norway for Seizing Children From Parents

Christians all over the world have planned a protest against the Norwegian government for removing five children from their family home.

Though incredulous as it might sound, the Norwegian government removed the children because of what they call "religious indoctrination".

Protests are planned for the rest of January in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Austria, Romania, Spain, Ireland, India, Poland, and Australia, along with several other countries to speak out against the recent separation of five Christian children from their parents at the hands of government officials.

In November 2015, Norway's child welfare services, known as Barnevernet, took the five children, (three sons and two daughters), from parents Ruth and Marius Bodnariu, residents of Naustdal and members of the Pentecostal Church.

The five children were taken from their family and separated into two foster homes after their school's teacher and principal alerted the authorities that the children were being raised in a Christian household that taught "God punishes sin."

The Barnevernet accused the parents of practicing "Christian radicalism and indoctrination."

Along with accusations of "indoctrination," the parents also faced accusations of physical abuse against their children, which they deny.

A petition and a Facebook page have been set up in support of the parents as they continue to appeal to have their family reunited again.

"They are just a normal Christian family trying to raise their children in the knowledge of God! There is no documented or otherwise abuse of any kind in this family," an iPetition that has gained 25,000 signatures since November reads.

A Facebook page created in support of the family also calls on the Norwegian government to return the children to their parents.

"We will keep the calm and the confidence that God will work and bring this family together again, and we will do everything that is depending on us, and we will not stop until they are reunited!" the Facebook post read
