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?' 'Yes.' 'Do you pray?' 'Yes.' 'Do you say praise the Lord?' 'Yes.'
The county employee notified the couple that the small bible study, with an average of 15 people attending, was in violation of county regulations, according to Broyles.
Broyles said a few days later the couple received a written warning that listed "unlawful use of land" and told them to "stop religious assembly or apply for a major use permit" -- a process that could cost tens of thousands of dollars.
It's getting serious folks. Shades of Germany? If we allow these types of persecutions whether we agree with the exercise of those freedoms or not, we lose a piece of freedom for ourselves. In Germany, the solution was to join the side of the oppressor as to not be oppressed yourself. That is what the Media and Liberal Politicians have done and now the battle lines have been drawn.
More and More I believe there is going to be a physical fight for our constitutional freedoms here in the U.S. Here are the signs to come:
Rush Limbaugh will be silenced either by being exiled himself or having the radio stations that carry his show shut down.
Fox News will need to be shut down or threatened to change to more liberal formats, firing hosts such as Sean Hannity and banishing Ann Coulter.
Guns will be confiscated, with neighbors turning in neighbors and gun sources will mysteriously dry up.
..People will start disappearing for no apparent reason.
If the vote in 2010 doesn't get Republicans the majority in congress, then it will be an all out revolutionary war for freedom again.
Give me Liberty or Give me Death!
