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".If we left these "progressives" to continue to take control of our schools, homes and government, we will sink into tyranny (we're almost there folks). Another reason people are leaving California for Texas and Oklahoma, where you can hold bible study at home.
That type of meeting would require a conditional use permit as defined by the city, according to Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), the couple's legal representation.
The Fromms also reportedly face subsequent fines of $500 per meeting for any further "religious gatherings" in their home, according to Pacific Justice Institute.
"We're just gathering and enjoying each other's company and fellowship. And we enjoy studying God's word." Stephanie Fromm told CBS2.
An note about the $300 fine for holding regular gatherings in your home with more than three people. I guess the weekly poker games with the guys is a thing of the past as well.
Astounding. You think it couldn't happen here!
