A nut job Raelian from Iran just got political asylum in the United States. (h/t Raelian wannabee The Treason Bar Asylumist)
RaeliaNews.org December 6, 2o11Negar Azizmoradi, leader of the Iranian branch of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), has been granted religious asylum in the United States after a long struggle that began when she publicly declared atheist/Raelian beliefs in her home country.“As the leader of the Iranian Raelian Movement and therefore an atheist as well as a political activist, Negar couldn't possibly stay in her country" said Brigitte Boisselier, spokesperson for the IRM, in a statement released this morning. “She was forced to flee Iran when her family received word that she was about to be arrested and thrown into prison.”The prospect of serving an indefinite sentence in an Iranian prison amounted to a likely death sentence, Boisselier said.
And apparently this cultist needed the help of another from both a more established cult and the new cult of Obama.
Boisselier added that Las Vegas Raelians wish to thank Senator Reid and his staff for their assistance in hastening Negar's asylum application process.
One notes that she is fleeing another cult.
Of interest is why Turkey, a signatory to the U.N. Conventions of 1951 and 1967 on the Status of Refugees, contemplated deporting her to Iran. Most likely because of Turkey's continuing Islamization. But as a signatory Turkey was obliged to grant her at least temporary protection. Even more absurd though is the continuing practice by most countries of foisting their refugees on the United States, much as Nepal does with with its nationals who flee Bhutan.
While the hottie Azizmoradi appears to meet the classic definition of a refugee, a person persecuted for religious or political beliefs, it is quite common for Iranians to falsely claim conversion from Islam to come to the United States. Most make a bogus claim to conversion to Christianity, almost all using the same story, an Armenian friend of mine invited me to church. But they give no specifics and usually mention some street in the Armenian section of town. That's about it.
But do we really want UFO cult leaders in the United States? Do we need a repeat of the Heaven's Gate suicides? Hasn't the cult of self given to us by Marin County and its hot tub culture done enough damage? Do we need these cults at all? We have the Revealed Truth that our Founders acknowledged.
Here is Patrick Henry on the issue. One wonders what he would have thought of Raelians infiltrating the U.S.
“It can not be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians, not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ!”
But this does tell us that even the traditional interpretation of asylum and refugee law has its problems, not counting the unlawful expansion to Brazilian homosexuals and Mexican transvestites by the judiciary.
