The Obama administration is seeking to legalize 30,000,000 illegal immigrants, while on the other hand prosecuting this one, lone, LEGAL, Christian homeschool family!! Their message is loud and clear:
1. All immigrants are welcome in the US, except Christian Homeschoolers who have faced persecution for their beliefs.
2. There is nothing inherently wrong with a government that bans homeschooling, persecutes homeschooling families, and kidnaps homeschooling children so that they can be raised by the state. This tyranny is acceptable and does not deserve protection.
3. We are setting a court precedence, that homeschooling is not a fundamental human right. This will make our legal battle much easier when we eventually try to ban homeschooling in the United States.
4. We are in charge. We will tell you where, when and what you are allowed to teach your children. If you don’t like that, fine, we will take your children.
Like I said, their message is loud and clear. This is not about the Romeike family. The Obama administration has bigger fish to fry, namely US Christian and homeschool families. It may be the Romeike’s sitting in court, but it is our rights, freedoms and beliefs that are on trial. Round 1, has just been lost. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals just ruled against the Romeike’s, against homeschooling, against parental rights. This is a terrible injustice – to have your asylum overturned so that our government can ship you back to Germany where your children will likely be siezed, all because the Obama administration has a political ax to grind.
Well, the battle was lost, but the war is still waging. HSLDA is preparing for Round 2. We have to stand with them! We have to get involved! We have to fight! We must send a loud and clear message of our own to this administration, this government and all governments, “Homeschooling is a God-given right! Don’t you dare deprive us of it!!!!!!!”
Thanks for your support!
