OC Couple Threatened With $500-Per-Meeting Fines For Home Bible Study MISSION VIEJO (CBS) An Orange County couple has been ordered to stop holding a Bible study in their home on the grounds that the meeting violates a city ordinance as a church and not as a private gathering. Homeowners Chuck and Stephanie Fromm, of San Juan Capistrano, were fined $300 earlier this month for holding what city officials called a regular gathering of more than three people. That type of meeting would require a conditional use permit as defined by the city, according to Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), the couples legal representation. The Fromms also reportedly face subsequent fines of $500 per meeting for any further religious gatherings in their home, according to PJI. Were just gathering and enjoying each others company and fellowship. And we enjoy studying Gods word. Stephanie Fromm told CBS2. -- Neighbors have written letters to the city in support of the Fromms, whom they said have not caused any disturbances with the meetings, according to PJI. The Fromm case further involves regular meetings on Sunday mornings and Thursday afternoons with up to 50 people, with impacts on the residential neighborhood on street access and parking, City Attorney Omar Sandoval said. Selective enforcement, perhaps?
