AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
November 13, 2013
2.) Day of Prayer for the Romeike Family
1.) AFA National is again offering Christmas buttons to help keep Christ in Christmas and to share the Gospel. Say “Merry Christmas” to your friends, your church, your school or your whole community by wearing and sharing these beautiful Christmas buttons. Order now to have plenty of time to give them away. Quantities are limited.
2.) Michael Farris, Founder and Chairman of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), is asking for us to set aside November 17th as a special day of prayer for the Romeike family. Remember this is the German homeschool family that came to this country to escape persecution from the German authorities because of their decision to homeschool. They were originally granted temporary asylum by an immigration judge, but the Obama administration appealed that decision and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the immigration judge’s decision. In Romeike v. Holder, HSLDA is asking the Supreme Court to uphold America as a place of refuge for those who are persecuted for their faith. Michael Farris says, “I feel good about our argument, but we must all recognize that the Supreme Court takes a very limited number of cases—so please pray that the Court will agree to hear our appeal.” Did you know the Supreme Court of Germany declared that the purpose of the German ban on homeschooling was to “counteract the development of religious and philosophically motivated parallel societies”? By the way that law was enacted by Adolph Hitler!

2.) Click here to listen to my interview with Mike Donnelly, an attorney with HSLDA, as we discussed this case back in April. Take time on Sunday, November 17th and pray specifically for the Romeike family as they endure this attack on their parental authority. Also, pray that the Supreme Court will hear the Romeike family’s appeal. On November 26 the Supreme Court will decide whether or not to hear the HSLDA German homeschool asylum appeal, Romeike v. Holder.
