    Um ... even in the article it points out that it isn't about the "bible study" but about city regulations.

    the hell you say..








    sounds like it was about bible study to me.. if they had a beer party every week with 15 participants not a damn word would have been said.. go peddle that shit somewhere else.

    Broyles also said this case has broader implications.

    "If the county thinks they can shut down groups of 10 or 15 Christians meeting in a home, what about people who meet regularly at home for poker night? What about people who meet for Tupperware parties? What about people who are meeting to watch baseball games on a regular basis and support the Chargers?" Broyles asked.

    Permits don't cost that much, and you can get them free if you know the right channels. Also, yes, I would have called the cops on a beer party in a heart beat, especially if they were too loud. Try again. It's still more about regulations of assembly, the religious part was just hyped by the media to make it controversial so fools would buy it.

    "Broyles said his clients have asked to stay anonymous until they give the county a demand letter that states by enforcing this regulation the county is violating their First Amendment right to freely exercise their religion"

    And right to peacefully assemble?

    What a crock this is?

    I'm not quite sure what kind of a nuisance 10-15 people congregating at a house every week would be, but I don't think it should be that bad.

    They didn't but beer parties are generally a once in a while thing anyway, different beast. Now, show me where I was dead wrong ... :eusa_whistle:
