    A misleading headline from Fox. How odd.

    So you think it's OK to repeat someone elses' lies simply because you thought it might help you make a point?

    That's just as dishonest

    Do YOU have the necessary size power-out exit signs at your house or apartment? If not, when do you plan to correct this criminal neglect and activity? Or are you committed to gross criminal conduct?

    Sent to jail for not having sprinkler heads in his house for Bible studies. Sicko middle class white people hate-others immorality and government oppression.

    I don't really think that is what the American Revolution was about....

    "King George, for refusing to create and enforce residential anti-fire safety standards and necessary prison space for violators and other inaction of a weak King, we hereby declare our independence so we may self impose 1,000,000,000 pages of behavior regulations by 1,000,000 goverment officials including in the privacy of people's homes for the common good."

    Yes, that's what it was about.

    I'm sure your Republican pals on the Phoenix City Council - or more accurately the realtors and contractors on the Code Enforcement Committee - appreciate your supporting intolerance of people who meet in shacks. Shacks don't meet code. Rich guys houses and meeting locations meet code. It is criminal for anyone to meet but there and only those invited get to come too. I guess you figure you'd make the invitation list.

    I guess you're resorting to ad homs because even you realize that your argument has been pwned by me

    NO ONE has "sprinkler heads" in their house. That's all just BS.
    Actually, some cities are requiring them now for new home construction. It's still pretty rare, though.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The city counsel election hasn't happened yet.

    The police, code enforcement and fire marshall mass raided his house twice writing him 7 more citations?

    I hope the guy wins. Those petty good-ole-boy-rich-white-people controlling city hall need some ex gangbanger religious zealot giving them hell on city council.

    The unanswered question is what relative of who at city hall lives on that block. That'd tell the whole true story.
    I hope this guy gets his "house" repossesed for being such a dick. i hope he loses every penny he has in court tryign to get it back!
    Nah I don't actually hope for all I'mnot that vindictive. But it is appearing less and less likely that this guy is a victim and more and more liek he is a jerk who refuses to obey the law. he coudl have created his "church" and followed all the regulations but he seems more interested in scamming the system than in god.

    Since he now claims that he isn't operating a church, I think that he should have to pay the back taxes that should have been assessed from 2008 to the present.

    That is a reasonable question. I suppose the next step should be to tell he he cannot use the room for meetings until it has been confirmed that he meets the building codes through a follow-up inspection. If he violates that direction (I assume there is an authority to do so under the government's safety interest) then he would be jailed for something more serious than building code violations.

    Define he? Do you refer to the one term Marxist?
