The Obama administration has won a victory against religious liberty. The Supreme Court refused to hear the case of the Romeikes family and they are now in danger of deportation. I’ve written on this story before in an attempt to bring attention to the shocking callousness towards freedom of religion by the president.
The Romeikes came to the U.S. in 2008 in order to homeschool their children according to their Christian worldview. Germany has banned all family homeschooling, the reason being—and I’m not kidding—to inculcate German values in all schoolchildren. The U.S. had initially seemed to be a godsend until Eric Holder decided to fight the Romeikes' citizenship process.
The Obama administration has argued in favor of the German state and stated that:
“The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society,” the Justice Department wrote in a legal brief last year. “Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany.”
