That should encourage adoption of abandoned children. (/sarc)
Why would I ever want to adopt one of these kids?
Spain saved Europe from the Muslin invasion and is now surrendering to them.
Morocco has a high rate of child abandonment, and Spain has agreed to raise adopted children with the failed Moroccan culture? I'm sure that makes sense to liberals.
there are ways to surreptitiously raise a child in the beliefs of his parents, it has been done for thousands of years under oppressive regimes
there also is the rite of Baptism which no imam patrol can undo
In at least a dozen other cases, Spaniards have converted to Islam in order to obtain custody over "their" children, especially if they are girls.
Apparently the Muslim law makes it somewhat easier if it's a girl, -- or are Moroccan girls a prized commodity for someone? It is indicative, anyway, of a shocking loss of Christian and national identity in Spain.
So the children are to be deprived of religious freedom. And what is the controlling mechanism if the child opts out of the death cult?
Muslim parents abandon children in droves. Christians take in the children and care for them. But the Muslims won’t let the child they abandoned leave the faith that abandoned them.
Feeding, educating and clothing a child that isn’t “yours” but a foreign child subject to foreign laws - that’s just a long term hoteling arrangement at Christian expense, like the Shariah laws that said Christians had to give any Muslim visitor free food and shelter for three days.
It is ironic that no human being can convert a Muslim to Christianity. It is completely the work of God and only God can convert any human after birth to a Christian believer.
Likewise, no human institution can prevent another from having faith in Christ. Distract, counterfeit, substitute, interfere, obfuscate,...yes, but never does such an effort have more power or authority than the hand of God.
But then American parents give their own children over to public schools, K-12 and on to the University --- so the kids can be indoctrinated in a religio-cultural system the parents do not believe in.
Unless you really do believe in the leftism, moral relativism, and hostility to religious practice and belief found in the public schools.
Spain is very close to going down the toilet as it is so this decision won’t make much difference.
