    The guy has over 4 acres of land, and under 20 people attending his home-church. So, he's not crowding his neighbors.

    On the other hand, there are shitheads who want to have home-churches on their quarter-acre city lot with 50 people attending every Sunday. There's a reason we have zoning laws. There's a reason we had segregation. Civilized people want to live in quite and peaceful neighborhoods.

    I suggest you go with that. Try Dearbornistan or, since it's closer, Tehrangeles.

    Maybe he doesn't know that lying is a sin.

    I suggest you look up "sarcasm" in any dictionary.

    I know lots of libs, and pretty much that's how they feel. I can be forgiven for assuming mainstream liberal intentions.

    From the OP link:
    "It came down to zoning and proper permitting. Anytime you are holding a gathering of people continuously as he does, we have concerns about people being able to exit the facility properly in case there is a fire."

    Should religion be exempt from zoning and other laws?
    Seems like that would be against the constitution.

    I have a very, very, big problem with government telling people what people can and cannot do in the privacy of their home; unless of course, some form of abuse has been reported.
