"We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families.
We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them"

"[T]he most vulnerable children in our society ... are in our care; we, the state, are their parents"

"There is no situation so dire that it cannot be made worse by the intervention of a social worker"

"Above all things, the child needs protecting from the state"

Does it Take a Village?

God gave children to parents, NOT to the State, to love, nurture, teach, discipline, and train up into adulthood.  It does NOT take a 'village' or the 'Collective' or State-run 'Care homes' to raise a child; it takes a loving and biological/adoptive/foster family.  Please see the article Communism and the Family for the ideology underlying the 'Collective'.

The Issues are:

  • the arrogant over-riding by State Social 'Services' of the inherent and prior right and responsibility of family members (grandparents, aunts and uncles, older siblings, cousins) to take into their home the child or children of another family member who is genuinely incapable of raising them, before either non blood-related heterosexual couples are considered as foster or adoptive parents or the children are placed in State 'care'; and
  • the politically-correct insistence that children be given to homosexuals or Muslims despite there being very many heterosexual or Christian/secular couples willing and able to adopt them.

The Reasons Given

Of the various spurious 'reasons' given by the UK's Child 'Protection' system for stealing children from their parents, the following three are fast becoming the most common:

  • "'emotional abuse': This has been by far the biggest contributor to the explosion in the numbers of children taken into care since the 'Baby P' scandal in 2008, rising by 92%. And most have not been for actual emotional abuse but simply for the possible 'risk' of such abuse happening in the future;
  • a second charge against parents which comes up too often is their failure to 'co-operate with professionals', such as the social workers who are tearing their family apart;
  • a third reason used to justify 90% of child removals is the role of those 'independent' psychologists hired by social workers to report that the parents suffer from such vague conditions as 'borderline personality disorder', or 'narcissism', leading them to 'put their own interests above those of the children'" [source].

Social Workers

Self-important young social workers barely out of school, their silly heads stuffed full of pseudoscientific psychology and sociological (i.e. Cultural Marxist) claptrap, who lack:

  • an historical knowledge or understanding of, or love for, the family they blithely tear apart, and
  • the wisdom that comes only from the experience of age and the fear of the LORD, and
  • who have never even had any children of their own let-alone raised them to responsible and well-adjusted adulthood,

are certainly NOT in ANY position to counsel, instruct/lecture or make judgements about, any parent or any family.

State Control

The terrible reason underlying all such pernicious interference by the Social 'Services' and their equally vile legal cohorts in the secret 'Family' Courts (with the collusion of our brainwashed police force, perfidious state school teachers, and unethical medical doctors) into the sanctity and privacy of parents and their families is the deliberate agenda by Western Governments to replace God-ordained parental authority with God-less totalitarian State authority over children, as seen here.

State Education

State education is also part of that agenda.  Please see here, here, here, and here, for more on State education.

Social Engineering

Please pray for these children and their parents who are the victims of the UK's (also the USA's and some European countries) evil social engineering programmes carried out by witless social workers, family court personnel, police, state school teachers, and medical doctors.  Please also pray for the eyes of these self-righteous useful idiots in the Social Services to be opened that they may understand that their attempts to steal or kidnap a child from its parents is an abomination in God's sight, and that, far from protecting children, they are doing all these little ones great and lasting harm.

"And he that stealeth [a child], and selleth him..."
(Exodus 21:16)

"The words of a talebearer [teachers and 'safeguarding officers'] are as wounds,
and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly"
(Proverbs 18:8)

"Every fool [social worker] will be meddling ... Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house:
lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee"

(Proverbs 20:3b; 25:17)

"Seest thou a man [social worker] wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him"
(Proverbs 26:12)

"Woe unto them [family courts judges] that decree unrighteous decrees,
and that write grievousness which they have prescribed"

(Isaiah 10:1-3)

"Woe to them [social workers and family court judges] that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds!
when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. ...
So they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage"
(Micah 2:1-2)

"It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea,
than that he should offend one of these little ones"
(Luke 17:1-2)

"Let none of you suffer ... as a busybody [social worker] in other men's matters"
(1 Peter 4:15)

"Never, anywhere in the Holy Bible will you find God giving civil government any authority to rear or direct the rearing of children
 ... God told parents, not the government, to 'train up' their children."
(Laura Rogers, Societal Structures vs. Restructuring, as quoted in Berit Kjos, Brave New Schools, p185)
