    It's a polarized topic, so... good luck.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I agree with you on this detail. All that matters is whether it was a reoccurring generally open invitation gathering. If so, then it was a church, not a private gathering among friends. As such it was subject to these code laws.

    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

Intelligent choices and actions can only be made when all data is present.
    Only data I need is that people were assembling to exercise speaking on their religion. No other data required.

    Come now, they're from the government, so they clearly went there to help.

    I am reminded of that one time when some dude down in Chicago put up a big ol' honkin' flagpole with big, loud metal hasps. All the neighbors complained about the non-stop CLANG! CLANG! CLANG! Day. Night. CLANG! CLANG! CLANG!

    Once enough complaints came in to the city desk they asked the guy to remedy the noise and all of sudden it was, "The city wants to ban me from flying the American flag!"

    Fox News.... meh.

    Collect all you want. As long as its not trampling explicitly protected rights.

    Re: Homeowner Jailed for Hosting Bible Study

    Everything I came here to say was said:

    He was jailed for code violations not for hosting a Bible Study, headline is blatantly false. If they really wanted to mention the bible study in the headline it would read "Man jailed for code violations, as a result of large bible study group." Also, how many people were present and what kind of neighborhood does this guy live in? Key pieces of information.

    And lastly, the video is pretty creepy and I'm not a fan of pray by screaming.

    If you want to make an ill informed reaction, then yes this is how you do it.
