This series of pictures reminds me of the whole Koran burning non-burning bruhaha that took place last week. If only we would reach out to the “other side” and show them how much we care and respect them, I’m sure they would see that, and would realize the only compromise we need to make is one that is based on love and friendship.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a drum circle to attend to.
A Pastor and his wife from San Diego have been threatened with fines by a county official for holding *illegal* Bible studies in their home:
“The county asked, ‘Do you have a regular meeting in your home?’ She said, ‘Yes.’ ‘Do you say amen?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Do you pray?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Do you say praise the Lord?’ ‘Yes.’”
The county employee notified the couple that the small Bible study, with an average of 15 people attending, was in violation of County regulations, according to Broyles.
Broyles said a few days later the couple received a written warning that listed “unlawful use of land” and told them to “stop religious assembly or apply for a major use permit” — a process that could cost tens of thousands of dollars.
That’ll teach you intolerant Christians to vote no to gay marriage.
At one point in American history, the right to peaceful assembly was constitutionally protected. Now though, some dude with a bug up his ass and a thin knowledge of zoning laws rules the day. “Hey, Boy Scouts, break it up or yer going to jail!!”
I wonder if county officials will be so stringent with the law if 15 guys named Mohammad got together every Wednesday for prayer? That question pretty much answers itself.
Welcome to the new America.
