This is a Christian blog dealing with various issues. “Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.” -Charles Spurgeon. Scripture is my authority for all things regarding to life and godliness. 2 Cor. 10: 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

You Can Be An Illegal Alien In America And Get Assylum, Free Medical Care, Education, and a Driver's License, But No Protection for Law-Abiding Family Seeking Actual Political Assylum
The United States Supreme Court has denied review in the appeal of the Romeike parents, German homeschoolers who sought and were granted asylum in the U.S. to avoid losing custody of their children in their country, where homeschooling is largely illegal. The Obama administration appealed the decision of the immigration judge who granted the family asylum.
The Obama administration’s appeal of the 2010 decision that granted the family asylum based on religious freedom grounds prevailed on two levels of appeals. The Supreme Court had ordered the U.S. Solicitor General to respond to the Romeikes’ petition.
“We will pursue changes to the asylum law in this country to insure that religious freedom is once again vigorously protected in our policy,” Farris said. “I am just glad that the Pilgrims did not face this anti-religious policy when they landed at Plymouth Rock.”
“The United States should be a place of asylum for those who are persecuted because of their decision to follow their core religious beliefs,” Farris said. “Parents, not the government, decide first how children are educated. Germany’s notorious persecution of families who homeschool violates their own obligations to uphold human rights standards and must end.”
Germany’s highest court has asserted that the ban on homeschooling in that country is designed to ensure that religious homeschoolers do not become a “parallel society.”
Germany's historical track record on who owns the children (yes that's what this is really about--remember MSNBC's Melissa Harris Perry and Obama both say that they own our children) and thus who should control their minds (indoctrinate, not educate). HITLER should come to mind, folks.
