Kids seized over family's 'Christian indoctrination'
Social media campaign to reunite parents, children surges worldwide
December 4, 2015
Bob Unruh

A social media campaign is surging around the globe – tens of thousands already have signed a petition – in defense of a family whose five children were seized by the Norwegian government because of “Christian indoctrination.”

The case was profiled just hours ago by the Christian Institute in the United Kingdom, which advocates for religious rights.

Norway’s child welfare services, the Barnevernet, seized Marius and Ruth Bodnariu’s two daughters, two sons and subsequently their baby, Ezekiel, the report said.

Social services agents and police took the family’s two oldest children out of their school without their parents’ knowledge and hid them in an undisclosed location.

Then the agents and officers went to the family’s home, “where, apparently without any documentation, they seized their two sons and arrested Ruth – who they took to the police station along with baby Ezekiel. Marius was arrested while he was at work and also taken into custody.”

The parents were interrogated but later allowed to return home with their baby but no other children. Then the next day the baby also was seized, the report said.

Weeks passed while the parents were denied contact with their children. They just were told that the children “had integrated well into their separate foster homes and didn’t miss their parents,” the institute reported.

Finally, a lawyer obtained by the parents accessed some of the case documents and discovered the parents were accused of being “radical Christians who were indoctrinating their children.”

An online petition created on the family’s behalf already has collected nearly 27,000 signatures.

A post there from Daniel Bodnariu, Marius’ brother and a church pastor, expressed thanks for those concerned about his brother’s family.

See what American education has become, in “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians Are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children.”

He explained the action was initiated by a director of a school his nieces attend.

The girls are “challenging,” talk a lot and will not comply [with the ] school,” he explained. “But they are creative and smart.”

He said the girls, at the prompting of officials, confirmed occasions of corporal punishment but insisted there was no “abuse.”

And he warned that someone can make a telephone call and parents “wake up with … police at the door” and no option but to prove they are good parents.

This story so shocked me I went in search of more information. Found this:

Zitat
Wrote by Daniel Bodnariu:

„I am writing in support of my brother, Bodnariu Marian Constantin (Marius), a Romanian citizen, his wife Ruth Johanne Bodnariu, a Norwegian citizen, and their 5 children (Eliana, Naomi Matthew, John and baby Ezekiel who is only three months old) with joint citizenship in Romania and Norway. Marius and Ruth, former members of Philadelphia Pentecostal Church in Bucharest, married in Romania, moved to / settled in Norway approximately 10 years ago to start, and raise, a family in Ruth’s hometown.

This past Monday, November 16th, Child Welfare Services (Barnevernet) “kidnapped” the two oldest children (Eliana and Naomi) from school without the knowledge of their parents. Barnevarnet, accompanied by police, then came to the Bodnariu home and forcibly took custody of the two older boys (Matthew and John); leaving a devastated Ruth at home with only three month old Ezekiel while Marius was at work.

Marius promptly came home from work to understand what was taking place and, together with Ruth, visited the police station and Barnevernet to resolve the situation. Because Ruth was crying and devastated by the events, Barnevernet and four policemen showed up at their family home on Tuesday, November 17, without any court order or documentation, and also took 3 month old Ezekiel on the stated grounds that the mother posed a danger to her child. On Wednesday, November 18, Barneverent notified Ruth that her kids were separated into two families and that the children already started integrating into their new lifestyle.

The Barnevernet also told Ruth that “The kids don’t even miss you, what kind of parents are you?” On the other hand, the children are told that their parents abandoned them and that they do not care! These actions of the Barneverent terrifies any normal parent who loves their children! What happens in Norway via the Barneverent, under the guise of “child welfare,” is outrageous and unfathomable! Children are considered property of the state; a premise utilized by the Barnevernet to abduct children and place them in foster family care for any unchecked/unregulated/unaudited reason as upheld by the Barnevernet. A quick search on the internet will yield results highlighting hundreds of cases of abuse and testimonies from affected families.

The Barnevernet has a history of prevalently focusing their efforts on immigrant families or on families in which one of the parents is of a different nationality (as in my brother’s case, Romanian). Documentation has evidenced that the Barnevernet has a long history of acting on unimaginable grounds including: the father putting the child to do certain chores in the home, the baby sleeping in the same bed as the parent or the child weighing one kilogram lighter than the national average for his/her age group. Norwegian children are taught in school to notify their teachers if a parent asks them to do their homework, or do something that a child in their childishness finds unappealing, so that teachers help the children get rid of such parents.

Children are interrogated in great detail at school about their home life with what can be interpreted as malicious intent for identifying grounds on which the Barneverent can “interpret” seemingly fickle and unsubstantiated grievances. Furthermore, the Barnevernet is NOT objective in its actions and proceedings. Quite to the contrary, the Barneverent incentivizes and rewards its employees for “generating” leads that can create to case work for the organization. I testify, and vehemently vouch, for Marius and Ruth having given birth to and raised a “normal” family with Christian values.

These parents love their children and have taken every imaginable step in raising their children with loving caring in all aspects of their well-being. The tearing apart of their family by the Barnevernet is a living nightmare for Marius and Ruth.

Their hope is founded, and rests, in God; He can change any situation and He is ALWAYS in control! Please pray for Marius, Ruth, and their children as God CAN give them deliverance out of this difficult trial! God bless you and thank you for your prayers and support

There is a working petition here:

Merely signing a petition seems to be such an insignificant act when it comes to the mentality behind this seizure but I suppose it's better than nothing.

So - are islamicists treated the same way as Christians? Their children taken away? (Yeah, right...)

There are 31,680 signatures from around the world. They may give some comfort and encouragement to the Bodnariu's . With a little luck it MIGHT embarrass someone with power in the Norwegian government to set in motion the release of their children. Too bad Pope Francis places his concern over the myth of man made global warming over prresecution of Christians.
