If I had told you ten years ago that a family seeking asylum from religious persecution would be turned away from the US, you would have thought I was nuts. But, it's finally happened—and no surprise to a Christian family.
Uwe and Hannelore Romeike came to the United States in 2008 seeking political asylum. They fled their German homeland in the face of religious persecution for homeschooling their children. They wanted to live in a country where they could raise their children in accordance with their Christian beliefs. Too bad they picked the United States, huh?
I expected this sort of thing from Scumbag Eric Holder and his cohorts at Justice, but did not anticipate that the (increasingly pointless) Supreme Court would refuse to take this one up. Consider that our country was virtually founded on the notion of religious liberty. Oh yes, there were warnings more than 50 years ago, but people like Robert Welch were crazy, right? Just like Sarah Palin was stupid for saying that Russia would invade Ukraine.
Jesus spoke about the brood of vipers, only this time they are not hiding, like the Pharisees, under a cloak of religion. No, they are operating completely in the open as Commie atheists.
It is not depressing that scumbags will be scumbags. No, it is depressing how many useful idiots (as Stalin and Lenin called them) we have here today.

I guess this is one advantage of having a gigantic federal bureaucracy: One agency can overrule the other, if needed for political effect.
