Barack Obama’s Department of Justice seems concerned about protecting the “rights” of illegal aliens, foreign gays who wish to come to America, terrorist suspects and other threats to America’s national security, but it considers a German homeschooling family a threat to America’s future.
AG Eric Holder’s DOJ is arguing against providing asylum for Uwe and Hannelore Romeike, German parents who fled from Germany after they were threatened with jail, fines and the forcible removal of their children from their home. What was their crime? They were homeschooling their children!
Michael Farris, president of the Home School Legal Defense Association, has been defending this German family from Obama’s Fascist DOJ. The Germany family was initially granted asylum, but then the Obama Administration appealed the case to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
This case will not only impact this German home schooling family, but every Christian in America and the right of parents to bring up their children without government intrusion.
The Obama DOJ is arguing in this case that there is no fundamental Constitutional right to homeschool children anywhere – including the U.S. The DOJ is also claiming that there is no such thing as an “individual right” to religious liberty and conscience. AG Eric Holder and his gang of thugs at the DOJ believe that there are only “group” rights. If you belong to a group, you’re protected; if you don’t, you can’t expect any legal protection.
As Michael Farris observes: “The United States Supreme Court has made it very clear in the past that religious freedom is an individual right. Yet our current government does not seem to understand this. They only think of us as members of groups and factions. It is an extreme form of identity politics that directly threatens any understanding of individual liberty.”
In essence, the Obama DOJ is rejecting the fundamental principles of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which clearly deal with individual rights of religious liberty and conscience. This isn’t surprising, given the collectivist mentality of Obama and his minions running the White House and the U.S. Senate. They are totalitarians – and they will do whatever they can to undermine our fundamental individual rights.
Imagine if Uwe and Hannelore Romeike were a lesbian couple seeking asylum in the U.S. from a European nation that criminalized homosexuality? They would have been seated next to First Lady Michelle at the State of the Union speech; they would have had a TV movie made about them; a lucrative six figure book deal; and violent protests and/or candle light vigils on campuses to win their asylum. And, Willie Nelson would have held a “Lesbian Aid” concert to raise money for their ACLU defense team.
But, that’s not to be. They’re not part of a collective and they’re not terrorists. They’re just dedicated heterosexual parents who wish to direct the upbringing of their children. And, for this, they’re considered criminals in Germany and unworthy of asylum by Obama and Eric Holder.
