    This is beyond scary:

    The "permit" that they have to get to have 15 people over for Bible study costs $25,000 or more.

    I guess "freedom of religion" and "freedom of assembly" don't apply in the People's Republic of California.

    I know of some officials that should lose their jobs...today. They are the political equivalent of hemmorhoids.

    That is a clear violation of a person's First Amendment right to peacfully assemble. If I were him, I would challenge that stupid rule.

    When I was a kid (probably about five years old). I remember on occasion a couple of parents would get together in the neighborhood & hold a make shift children's church / bible study. I am certain there was at least 30 or more of us kids on that neighbor's back porch. This was in Elizabeth City, NC.

    If that rule ever becomes a nationwide thing I would challenge people to not only oppose it, but intentionally have a Bible study in their own homes. The law obviously can't go after everybody. I also believe that police officers would also have a hard time wrestling with their conscience while enforcing this law (most of them anyway).

    They need to contact Liberty counsel so they can put an end to the whole thing.

    I know there's disagreement about much on here...but I would hope we've finally found something we all unanimously agree on. This is insanity.
