A Christian couple in the U.K. who had their two adopted sons removed from their care by government officials in 2014, due to abuse allegations, were allowed to appeal the decision Tuesday after it was revealed portions of the allegations against them were fabricated.
A release from the Christian Legal Centre, which is supporting the couple's case, said the adoptive parents, given the aliases John and Mary Brown to protect their identity, legally adopted the boys in 2013. The boys, identified by the aliases Dan and Tom, had been living with the couple since 2010.
Mary, who is reportedly in her early 60s, wanted to help the older boy and his brother because she had learned he suffered harm prior to knowing him. They boys were still in primary (elementary) school at the time they moved in with the couple. more >>

WASHINGTON — Thousands of Romanian Pentecostal Evangelicals peacefully protested Norwegian embassies in five national capitals, including Washington D.C. on Friday, calling on the Norwegian government to free five children who were removed from their parents by child services last year after a teacher complained about the family's Christian faith.
The three sons and two daughters of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were taken into custody by the Barnevernet (Norway's child services) on Nov. 16, 2015, after their daughter's teacher cited concern about the family's belief that "God punishes sin."
Despite not having been tried in a court of law, the children have been placed in three separate foster homes and the parents have been granted limited visitation rights. The family also claims that the agency has initiated the adoption process for the children on the grounds that they were physically abused. more >>
