Not so free in Germany


I am joining an international boycott of German goods because of that country’s drift away from fundamental freedoms.


Homeschooling parents in Germany have been imprisoned for teaching their children in a Christian lifestyle.[…]


If this was the only troubling sign from Germany, I would stop, but it is not. This attack on homeschooling comes on the heels of the conviction of Holocaust revisionist Ernst Zundel, who was sentenced to five years in prison for “denying the Holocaust,” which is considered seditious in Germany.

Call me a fool, but ideas and thoughts should be challenged in the forum of open debate, not through criminal sanction. The Holocaust is one of the most documented events in history, so there is a reason Zundel is marginalized. Freedom is nothing if it does not protect the most vulnerable and reviled.
