May 16, 2013 (C-FAM) – The AP reports on a U.S. Apeals Court decision to leave a family of homeschoolers at the mercy of the German government, even though the court found that the U.S. Constitution forbids the state from prohibiting homeschooling. The family faces impossible fines and losing custody of their children if they are returned to Germany. 

They should have just pretended to be gay. Had the family been a homosexual couple they would have probably qualified for asylum. 


The U.S. government routinely grants asylum to LGBT persons, citing a 1951 UN treaty that is binding on the U.S. government. Under the treaty, states cannot return individuals persecuted because of their membership in a particular group to their origin country.

It is tragic that not only homeschoolers, but a host of other individuals do not qualify for asylum, including persons displaced by natural disasters and wars.

Homosexuals instead are granted asylum all the time in the United States, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees asks that countries be unintrusive into the private lives of refugees when trying to ascertain their sexual orientation. 

Click “like” if you want to defend true marriage.

Hopefully the family gets to stay in the U.S., anyway. If the Obama administration allows the Romeikes to be returned to Germany, regardless of what the courts say, it means the U.S. Constitution is no longer a beacon of hope for those in the world that long for liberty.
