Norway's version of CPS returns children to family that was "too Christian"

Recommended Posts

In the fall of 2015 there was a report that Norway's CPS took children away from a Romanian Pentecostal family.  The case was sparked by a principal's report that the family seemed to be indoctrinating children with a "radical Christianity."  Later, the agency insisted that spanking was the real issue.  At one point it came out that 3% of immigrants have had their children taken.  Their CPS says there are cultural issues, that the immigrants often don't understand that they are not allowed to abuse their children in Norway, and that government will defend the tikes.

Only after nearly 8 months, a lost appeal, and an international outcry, did Norway relent.  Still, those little sparks of sanity keep us hopeful, do they not?
