A devout christian and his wife hold a weekly bible study in their home within the county of San Diego.
Then came a knock at their door -- when the wife answered a county official asked her a few questions, these questions were:
"Do you have a regular weekly meeting in your home? Do you sing? Do you say 'amen'?" the official reportedly asked. "Do you say, 'Praise the Lord'?"
When the wife answered yes to all of the above the county worker then told her that she must cease and desist any further "religious assembly" in the home until they obtained a "major use permit".
For those who do not know what a major use permit entails here is an example:
Traffic Pattern Studies as well as environmental studies, compliance with sidewalk regulations as well as parking regulations all of which can cost the couple tens of thousands of dollars to comply.
If the couple refuses to submit for the permit then the county official stated in writing that fines will esculate starting at $100, followed by $200 then $500 then $1,000 after which "it will get ugly"!
For those who do not believe that our basic religious freedoms (at least Christian) are under direct assault, think again. In addition our basic right to assembly is tied to the hip with this one stroke.
Fortunately, the couple has a powerful lawyer firm that specializes in this type of discrimination on the offensive and has written their own "cease and desist" order against the county backed by threat of a Federal Lawsuit.
San Diego is also home to a rather famous anti-christian court battle that raged for many years before (Mt. Soledad Cross) until Bush took the land with the cross under eminent domain to end the attempts to tear it down by a handful of atheists and the ACLU legal arm.
This battle raged on for many years and many times the voters tried to end this issue only to have a minority of individuals try to tear it down.
I think that I will take the home owners version of events and see how it play out in the news when the facts become clearer. I think that the events, as written by WND are accurate and reflect the true version of events without any further information to the contrary....
