    Homeowner Jailed for Hosting Bible Study

    If he was hosting a weekly gathering to watch football or play poker, then there would not be an issue? Hard to believe that so many want an even bigger more intrusive government?

    People should practice being in a state of relaxed awareness similar to defensive driving. Enjoy life, but study your surroundings.....http://www.stratfor.com/weekly/pract...onal-awareness

    Religious freedom is becoming extinct with our rush to socialism. Matthew 5: 11-12, "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." This is only the beginning!

    it wasn't about what he was doing in his house it was about the parking problem all his guest caused in the area
    had nothing whatsoever to do with him being christian and besides religious freedom was lost by countless as christian crusaders inquisitors and witch hunts began around the globe.......christians love to cry about their religion being persecuted yet throughout christian history christiains been taking the rights of non christians and their rights to practice non christian faiths

    I agree with what he said.

    It's true that he was imprisoned and fined for violating zoning laws, not for holding a bible study per se. Still, 12 cops raiding him? Churches may think they are outside the law, which they are not, but the law needs to be reasonably enforced.
    And jail time for zoning violators is a load of bs.

    we don't know other than what the media spewed on the story
    perhaps the violators were resisting arrest or obstructing the cops from doing their duty???

    This is a really tough call, on the face of it, because once the numbers start to get really big, then you have all sorts of hazards, like traffic hazards, parking problems, fire danger, and so forth.

    It sounds more like a running feud with the city as well, which has been going on for a long time.

    I would say this one went beyond a mere bible study for a few people and became a de facto church group, then subject to city zoning ordinances.

    I am sure the other neighbors were not happy with the crowds and traffic either. That's precisely why zoning was established, so someone can't start a factory or business next door to you.

    No problem for me with what Phoenix has done.
