City Fines Christians $300 For Holding Bible Study In Their Home
No, this is not Iran or Pakistan were talking about…
This is happening right here in the United States!
The City of San Juan Capistrano, California is demanding that a Christian couple purchase a permit to hold a Bible study group in their home. They’ve already been fined.
The couple insists, “There’s no singing or music. It’s meditative.”
World Net Daily reported:
Chuck and Stephanie Fromm already have been fined $300 for holding Bible studies for their friends at their home, and they face the potential for additional fines of $500 for each study held, according to a legal team taking their case to court.
The newest conflict over Bible studies in homes in America arose in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., where city officials say city code section 9-3.301 prohibits religious organizations in residential neighborhoods without a conditional-use permit, a sometimes very expensive procedure.
The code cites “churches, temples, synagogues, monasteries, religious retreats, and other places of religious worship and other fraternal and community service organizations.”
But a Bible study in a home?
So much for the First Amendment. Today Freedom of Religion only applies to atheists.
