    See what the church, alive and well, looks like. Romanian Christians are real troopers. Join in fasting and prayer before the next world wide protest on April 16 (the children were seized on November 16)

    Same family as mentioned in a previous thread? If I remember correctly, there was more to the story than the family's telling of it.

    It is a shame how few American Christians (except for Romanian American citizens) have signed this petition.

    In one of Richard Wurmbrand's books, "Underground Saints" I think, he quoted the press reports about the state's justifications for taking the children away from their Christian parents.

    There was always "more to the story," than the fact that they were Christians.

    Remember, Nero's persecution was because the Christians burned down Rome.

    False. Nero blamed the X'ns to deflect blame from himself.
    Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor, came to mind.

    "Of course, indifference can be tempting - more than that, seductive. It is so much easier to look away from victims. It is so much easier to avoid such rude interruptions to our work, our dreams, our hopes. It is, after all, awkward, troublesome, to be involved in another person's pain and despair. Yet, for the person who is indifferent, his or her neighbours are of no consequence. And, therefore, their lives are meaningless (……) indifference is always the friend of the enemy, for it benefits the aggressor - never his victim

    This is not just about one family. Systemic CPS abuse of system has harmed thousands of children. Norwegian Lawyer who has been fighting this for years:

    Yes, that's my point. There's always "more to the story," and generally, the "more to the story" is mere anti-Christian propaganda.
