    Wow, I'll give you the "deep thinker" and "articulate poster" award. This is so deep I think I'll just let it stand on it's own merit. Good job!

    Get your nurse to read you the whole thread, and not just the title, which is a lie. Then get back to us.

    You know that over-used sarcasm is very ineffective as a rhetorical tool, don't you? You've still to show any point of comparison between the civil rights movement and whatever this 'pastor' is protesting for or against. I'm pretty sure they haven't called out the state troopers or the lynch mobs on him though.

    He wasn't fined for his beliefs, but for endangering his congregants, upsetting his neighbours and flouting local laws. Which bits of his creed do you think were under attack?

    It's not the zoning laws that put this on Fox News, it's the "Bible study" thing. "War on Christianity" and other BS.

    Did his "congregants" know about the rules/regs/building codes? If so, then they all made a choice to break the law, yes? He made a choice and evidently so did the others. Thus they all stood up for what they believed. Not the first and won't be the last.
