A little while back I generated some good discussion (which I regret not continuing longer and digging deeper) when I posted about the case of the Romeike family, who applied for asylum in the USA after clashing with the German government over their desire to homeschool their children
For those of you who were interested in that discussion, and thanks to a conversatio on Alan Noble's FB page, I bring you this fascinating piece - http://papermakeweight.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/why-patheos-is-wrong-about-romeike-v-holder/
In which blogger The Paper Make-Weight (I have no idea who he/she is, but they appear to know law and can certainly write...) responds to a piece attempting to rebut the Home School Legal Defense Association's case againsty the US government. The majority of the original piece is quoted in that article, but for those of you who feel its only fair to read whats being critiqued in full first (a laudable goal!), here is the piece, by Libby Anne of Patheos blog "Love, Joy, Feminism". - http://www.patheos.com/blogs/lovejoyfeminism/2013/04/why-hslda-is-wrong-about-romeike-v-holder.html
As you might guess, I tend to agree with Paper Make-Weight, but its all good thought-provoking stuff!
