    If you aren't building, or changing a structure, you don't need to have permits. I have pulled thousands of permits for a home renovation business.
    You pull permits, do the job correctly, and have it inspected. That is the law.
    The only time you have any problem is when you try to get around the law.

    I have seen code enforcement require the total demolition of a building because of the builder not pulling permits, and having inspections.

    Would you be upset if you were in a building that was improperly built, and it collapsed, or caught fire due to bad wiring, or you were trapped inside during a fire due to no evacuation exits?

Local officers should have written every marcher violating ordinances against public gatherings without a permit a separate ticket for each and every block they walked, plus a ticket each for every jaywalking for every block, and a ticket for impeding traffic for every block, and a ticket for disobeying officers for every block, and a ticket for disorderly conduct for every block. At least 40 to 60 tickets each, so they could then order them to stay within the own community and report all their activities for years as a condition of probation.

    WE MUST NOT TOLERATE PEOPLE VIOLATING LOCAL ORDINANCES! Especially zoning ordinances that say how many people you can allow in your home and why you allow them. Permission to go into someone else's home should require a permit and prior government permission anyway.

    Its like that malcontent Rosa Parks breaking local ordinances. The city only wrote her ONE ticket. What whimps! They should have written at least 30 or 50. That's the way to deal with law breakers who violate local ordinances. LAW BREAKERS REFUSING TO FOLLOW LOCAL ORDINANCES MUST BE STOPPED, PUNISHED, MONITORED AND CONTROLLED!!!

    Besides, no one wants to live around anyone who has a shack in his backyard. That's really bad for property values and maintaining real estate property values of LAND a person OWNS is the most fundamental of all human and civil rights bare none.
    You are actually comparing this doofus to civil rights pioneers who risked their lives in order to obtain basic human rights? Do you have any sense of perspective?

    Let me ask you, what's you general opinion of the founders?

    And worshiping as you see fit isn't a civil right? IMO it is and I don't care if you want to worship bull poop, it's your right.

    So people that practice Sanataria could build a chicken coop in their back yard since it is a part of their religion.

    Or does practice as one sees fit only apply to Christians.

    I don't care who/what/how you worship, it's your worship. As I said before, the cops don't arrest you, you don't scare the horses in the street and I don't have to participate, then go for it. I'm not afraid of religion, we have laws, I'm afraid of individuals who want it "their way".

    So, you think that restrictions should be put on who/what/how people should worship?

    The guy can worship any way he wants IMHO. That does not give him the right to violate building codes.

    If that was what this was about, you might have a point, but it's not, so you don't.
