Over three years ago I wrote about Romeike family, who left Germany to seek sanctuary in the American Bible Belt so that they could Christian homechool their children. They appealed to the US for political asylum, since homeshooling is not permitted in Germany.
Now a federal court has denied the Romeikes asylum status. Further proof that Barack Obama is a Muslim terrorist sympathizer who is out to destroy Christianity.
The U.S. grants safe haven to people who have a well-founded fear of persecution, but not necessarily to those under governments with laws that simply differ from those in the U.S., Judge Jeffrey Sutton wrote in the court’s decision.
“The German authorities have not singled out the Romeikes in particular or homeschoolers in general for persecution,” he wrote for the three-judge panel in the case, Uwe Romeike v. Eric Holder, Jr.
More than two million American children are Christian-homeshooled in the United States. This way parents can keep their children away from those dark-skinned children of immigrants who sometimes aren't even Christian. Homeschooled children learn that the earth is 6000 years old, that baby Jesus played with the dinosaurs and President Obama is the incarnation of Satan.
The Right-WIng Noise Machine in the US - led by Fox News - is predicatably outraged that the Romeikes will be forced to return to Germany, where their children will be taken from them and sent to Theresianstadt - where they will be forced to study evolution.
“Germany continues to persecute homeschoolers,” said Mike Donnelly, the HSLDA’s director of international affairs. “The court ignored mountains of evidence that homeschoolers are harshly fined and that custody of their children is gravely threatened—something most people would call persecution. This is what the Romeikes will suffer if they are sent back to Germany.”
I just have one question: how many homeschooled American children are able to find Germany on a map?
