Yesterday on Fox News, the wife of a bible study leader who was jailed and fined for holding a gathering in his own home spoke out, saying that ‘this defies logic.’ I couldn’t agree more.

How’d big brother find out? Should have called it a tupperware party. I guess sthe bible is illegal now. shariah law?
Wake up, Christian America. We’ve been under attack for decades. It’s gonna get worst. We can’t ignore this outright anti-Christian bigotry and discrimination any more. Silence IS NOT an option! obozo and the rest of the anti-Christian subversive BIGOTS in our country are waging a war on Christians just because they are Christians. They’ll make up some bogus excuse, but it’s just plain and simple discrimination and religious persecution. May God help us. See website: http://www.haasstrep68.com
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
All I can say is that the so called “zoning laws” are unconstitutional since they vilote the first ammendment.
It is not the task of the religious believers to find a way around the aoning laws but it is the duty of the city counsil in Phoenix to come up with zonong laws that do not infringe upon the religious freedom.
The first ammendment existed before the first zoning law was ever concieved and the zonimg laws must therefore complete comply with the first amendment.
The zoning law excuse is as valid as the scotus approval of the obamacare mandate. In fact you have seen the opening of the Phoenix branch of the gestopo.
We faikled to put our foot down when they bootedm God out of the schools. So now they are getting bolder. Reread 1984! Orwell missed his date by a few years. It will get worse unless we stand up and say NO MORE!! Liberty is not lost in grand and glorious battles. It is chipped away bit by bit.
I certainly agree that it’s ridiculous that this man is being charged for holding a bible study in his own home, but I don’t agree with the “booted God out of schools” comment, assuming that you are talking about public schools. Religion has no place in public schools. If I want my child to have religious influences, I’ll send them to a Christian/Islamic/Buddhist school, whatever my beliefs maybe.
That’s right!! And at the same time, if I want my children to learn about aborting children, Homosexuality, Same Sex Marriage, among other things!! We’ll teach them that at Home also, if we want them to know about it!!
Children need to learn how god and religion played a role in the building of the United States of America. By editing out this part of history, you are no better than those who want to remove it from our currency, schools, courts and now, our homes.
Local zoning laws and others on town/city books are the result of someONE objecting because it did not fit into his agenda. Since U.S. citizens have become so obsessed with not offending anyONE, most laws are re-actions instead of actions. Some lady thought it horrible to spit on the street, so it became against the law. A preacher complained about saloon girls’ activities, so brothels were outlawed. A bus rider did not want to sit next to a Negro, so black’s were banned from public transportation. A black had a relative who was sold into slavery back in the 1800’s and brought suit against today’s government for it; Obama granted black’s farmers free money for their “suffering”. An ILLEGAL immigrant opposed deportation based on his illegal status and he and his extended family (3 generations back) get public aid, free education and their choice of foreclosed homes you and I worked and sweated for. When will this country’s citizens and law makers get a backbone? Starting with the smallest of bergs, their books of laws should be gone thru to eliminate those laws that were made for a minority of the people. All for one and one for All. Not all for me and to hell with you. This jail incident is one of Obama’s divide and conquer tactics and it’s working. Once we are fighting amongst our selves, this country will be easy pickin’ for him and his “brown shirts” to eliminate those who oppose him and the rest will bow down and kiss his feet or hide in the shadows until they die. Wake Up America! Are you a sheep, willing to be lead to slaughter or are you a sheep herder willing to lead the people into battle to crush the tyranny that is upon us? “…and to the Republic, for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, for Liberty and Justice for all!”.
It’s not Congress tearing down our Constitutional rights. It’s the imposter-in-chief Muslim and his paramilitary thugs. Congress is just running scared while he takes over. Way back about 500 years ago, the NATIVE Americans were persecuted for practicing their own beliefs. They were “assimilated” or murdered for not conforming. (Sound familiar?) Yep, it was Christians who did it. When you look at all religions, they all look to a higher power, or a god. Just like languages are different, god is referred to in many forms. Even pagans worship Mother Earth. Ultimately, your god exists in your own mind. Just as your opinion is yours and right for you, it does not mean you can force others to believe in your opinion.
God bless you and every Christian with a strong heart. The illegal immigrant, half breed, chimpazee, operating under the name “Barack Obama” is anti-Christian, and anti-white. He hates everything American, and he wants to kill everyone. May God give us the strength & power to fight this ape in the White House, in our hour of need.
If this is true, even AZ is going nutty. the constitution is being broken by the now government, even the state government. Where is the US Congress.? Where is the AZ Congress? They have gone batty. This is in a priavate home. It is not a meth lab. It is not a drug lab, if this is true. Someone in authority should spend the rest of his life in prison this person who has been jail should receive at least 10 Millions dollars.
We are now under surveilance by a police state that will not tolerate Christian gatherings in your home. It is also a way for them to extract money from Christians. A $12,000 fine is no small change but what is really pathetic about this, is sending in a swat team of gun carrying LEOs to make an arrest.
Amendment 14, Paragraph 1, 2nd sentence, first part: “No state shall make or enforce any law, which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States”
If you haven’t notice, Obama and his circus of czars are systematically dismantling OUR Constitution. It means nothing to him, but because it means everything to We The People, his will is to replace it with sharia law. Soon, it will not matter if you are Christian, Buddhist, or pagan. You are an infidel and shall be killed.
I wonder how much hazard pay that SWAT team got for making the arrest.
It must be so dangerous to do this.
Maybe that is the whole point make sensless arrests of peaceful people and show the public the power of the idiots in charge. To me it comes across as an intimidation technique (similar to what the EPA does) to scare the average person into obediance.
Even if the zoning law was violated, this is insane!
Obama has set an example for Control maniacs and they are following in his footsteps.
Obama’s private army at work???????????????.
Next week they will bring they will bring out the SWAT team when a police officer writes a ticket for a parking violation.
Ok threaten the man with Jail and slap a huge fine on him for studying the word of god behind closed doors at home. wow
I never thought I would see this happen in my life time at least not in the usa, comunist countries have even lightened up a bit. It is scarey it is our constitutional right to have prayer meatings where ever we wish and that comes first over zoneing laws put in place afterward..
so realy why are we helping to draft an constitution for Iraq? why don’t we just give them ours we dont use it any more.
THIS STORY MUST BE A LIE!
Whoever says that the man was fined and jailed JUST FOR HOLDING A BIBLE STUDY IN HIS HOME IS TRYING TO MANIPULATE US- whether that is what actually happened or not!
Was there a limitation on the amount of space that could be used to EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.
This is how The New World Order USES FACTS TO TELL LIES by telling only PART of the truth. They say: “YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW THE WHOLE TRUTH! ACT ON THE CRUMBS WE GIVE YOU!”
There are many things that could have gone on at that “Bible Study” that could have FULLY JUSTIFIED arrest, fining, and sentencing. THINGS WHICH WOULD CONVINCE A JURY OF THE ACCUSED’S PEERS.
Is that not a requirement of your law in your country?
If the facts before the jury are not going to be tendered, then in judging the case we are performing the same injustice we are accusing the state of.
1. The meeting could be causing a disturbance. (eg. R.W. Schambach was arrested for “Preaching the Gospel with a loudspeaker.”
2. The topic could have been problematic. Eg. Homosexuality and Transvestivism as Abominations before God.
3. The meeting could violate parole of convicts on probation.
4. Their vehicles could have caused traffic violations.
5. The Bibles or other materials (eg. Software) could be stolen property. (eg. Library materials.)
6. The accused could have resisted arrest, or insulted the Sheriff and court.
7. The accused could have been inciting substance abuse, violence, medical negligence, anti-Semitism, or other things that could disgust a jury.
Has no one else thought of all this, or am I the only one who believes in JOHN 7:24?
Why don’t you request that information from the arresting authority under the Freedom of Information Act?
You don’t believe. that is fine, but the instead of spouting off, make sure!
By law, they have two weeks to respond to a written request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.
Objective – you have a valid point. This lack of ALL the facts could be another “divide & conquer” technique to get us all fighting amongst ourselves. So…who, locally, has the fortitude to discover “The Rest of the Story”.
