Bible study is outlawed

to Stop Home Bible Studies

SAN DIEGO -- A local pastor and his wife claim they were interrogated by a San Diego County official, who then threatened them with escalating fines if they continued to hold Bible studies in their home, 10News reported.
Attorney Dean Broyles of The Western Center For Law & Policy was shocked with what happened to the pastor and his wife.
Broyles said, "The county asked, 'Do you have a regular meeting in your home?' She said, 'Yes.' 'Do you say amen?' Read complete story here:

This is just plain weird!

There are countless religious groups of every imaginable kind in CA. There probably are people meeting to study scriptures of every kind in that state.

Why should it worry the local government if some people were studying the Bible? Very puzzling!

What the public deserves to know is who these people are who want to try to stop something as innocent and Constitutionally protected as Bible study. What is their agenda and why are they afraid of the Bible?

The government should be so unconcerned about a small group of people meeting to read and study the Bible that this should not even be 'on their radar.'

I once knew of a private group of Calvinists who even used a public school classroom, after school hours, to study the Bible. There is nothing wrong in that. They had permission to do so.

Freedom of religious and political belief is clearly under attack in modern 'liberal' America. :(

It is astonishing to me that Americans even allow their government to collect 'property tax' at all.

When citizens pay tax on their home and land, they are effectively paying 'rent money.' If their ownership of these things were absolute and secure, they could not possibly have to pay tax on them.

We pay taxes on thing we purchase and do not yet own. There is no reason to pay taxes on what is already ours.

Testing the waters. They want to see how far they can get and how much the people will take. "Oh it is just them, (for whatever reason), and we are not going after everyone who does bible study." they will say. Soon it will be all our churches.
