    Patrons are not legally liable for code violations at the facilities they patronize. It is absolutely asinine to suggest otherwise or somehow try to assume consent through silence.

    So the if folks didn't know the facts of this situation, then the law will add this to the mans other charges.

    As far as I know you don't have to inform the public of all code/safety violations. I think food issues must sometimes be reported depending on the issue, but generally speaking, violations are not public knowledge unless one felt so inclined as to go pull the records.

    IOW, you don't know what his congregants knew or didn't know, but you don't let that stop you from dishonestly claiming that his criminal actions were a form of protest and that his congregants "evidently" knew about the code violations.

    I'm saying the guy knew the rules and yet he chose to break them. He must have known the penalty and evidently expected to pay the penalty. IMO, he did this as a religious protest. He has the right to do so, whether you or I think it's okay or not. No I can not say with authority his parishioners knew or didn't know about the code violations, nor can you, but I would think if they were members then they probably knew the rules/conditions.

    A religious protest against universally applicable zoning laws and building codes?

    Now you're dishonestly denying that you were only referring to the pastor and that you did not say

    He made a choice and evidently so did the others. Thus they all stood up for what they believed
    No I can not say with authority his parishioners knew or didn't know about the code violations, nor can you, but I would think if they were members then they probably knew the rules/conditions.
    Your post is so dishonest that you say you "can't say with authority" and then you dishonestly claim "they probably knew" even though you have absolutely no evidence to support it

    Bingo!

    Of course your answer is going to confuse some people here! Logic just ****s some people up.


    Congregant: Sylvia, I just love coming to worship at Mail Order "Reverend" Mike Salam's Backyard Tabernacle, but all the Fellowship Harvest Refreshments make me pee like a racehorse, and there aren't any bathrooms in Mail Order "Reverend" Mike Salam's Backyard Tabernacle.

    Sylvia: Oh, you must be new. Everyone just stands behind the refreshment table in the back and pees into 1 gallon plastic jugs.

    Congregant: Whut? I thought that was lemonade.
