    Ah the right to break the law. This applies to human sacrifice too?

    I'm thinking the guy was protesting against the zoning law, yes. He wanted to hold church and was told no because of the codes and did it anyway.

    That's not "protest". That's just breaking the law. And he wasn't told he couldn't run a church. He was told he couldn't run a church w/o meeting code.

    Well then the law will prevail. But I just can't see the benefit of 'just breaking the law" by doing this without some reason behind it.

    You may not be able to understand it, but for most of us, it's pretty obvious why he's breaking the law

    The cost of bringing the building up to code, and hire licensed electricians to do the work?

    There should not be a cost associated with expressing your rights. And such costs are no different than poll taxes.

    Building illegal and unsafe buildings are not rights.
