    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?
    Ever had a party at your home? Hope you didn't invite too many people. No doubt there's violation of an unenforced regulation there somewhere. What regulations governed the building of the national capital?

    I have had parties. I have not had parties several times a week for years on end in a property that is registered as a church and in a building that wan not permitted.

    And since it was on his property and he wasn't claiming to be a church, the city was collecting taxes from him. But to address you, one violation is a violation, isn't it? I'm trying to make a point, because frankly I don't care what you do in your house as long as you don't infringe upon my rights. Apparently he wasn't harming anyone.

    He WAS claiming it to be a church on legal documentation and was receiving a tax break because of it (those links were posted several times). Only when confronted with legal charges did he try to assert that the building was not a church.

    Okay, well when I read the link I must have missed that. In that case, I stand correctly.

    He wasn't throwing a party

    But I've been to plenty of parties where the cops showed up and shut them down. I didn't whine about it like the fake christians do

    But then, I have a life

    Then if this is true, the guy knew what was coming. He decided to buck the system and pay the price. His choice.
