As part of its continued one-sided reporting on a case in which a homeschooled German girl was purportedly kidnapped by the state -- an incident for which WND, to our knowledge, has provided no independent verification -- a Feb. 20 WorldNetDaily article cites a group called the International Human Rights Group, calling it an "international human rights organization."
In fact, the group's website mentions only one cause -- that of the German girl. This, in turn, suggests that the only humans whose rights the group cares about are conservative and evangelical Christians.
Indeed, it appears that the IHRG is a division of the European Defense Fund (headquartered not in Europe but in Georgia). Its website states that it "works with" conservative and evangelical groups such as the Alliance Defense Fund (from which it receives significant funding), the Christian Legal Society, the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board and Campus Crusade for Christ International. It claims that it "exists to help keep the door open for the proclamation of the Gospel message." The EDF is headed by Joel Thornton, who is a former chief of staff for the conservative, Pat Robertson-founded American Center for Law and Justice.
And of course, no WND article on the issue would be complete without pointing out that Germany's mandatory school attendance law was introduced under the Nazis, thus smearing every homeschool critic, German or otherwise, as a Nazi.
