    Maybe OWS just needs to call their rallies "Bible Study." Then it would be the evil government stopping their religious freedom.

    I've repeated the "broke the law pay the price" over and over. He should be prosecuted for breaking the law. IMO, he was protesting on the Freedom of Religion count. You don't then you and I will have to just disagree.


    But those "occupiers" that caused the damage in the same city to the tune of $200K should have been prosecuted too. BUT . . . . they were "let off" because the SAME prosecutor called the "PATRIOTS".

    Political BIAS . . . . . YES.

    No. I'd call it a zoning violation, as did the judge. Owning a residential property allows ONLY its residential use.

    I've said over and over and over. The guy broke the law. He should be prosecuted.

    But, IMO, he did it for religious reasons.

    It never ceases to amaze me how the right has an endless capacity to see bias against them. Hollywood, the media, Obama, the UN...all out to get them. Yet according to at least one person on their side, Liberals are unskilled and unable to get a job. Amazing for people that apparently rule the whole world.

    The fact that Fox News saw this as important.

    I guess you watch Fox News, yes? Lots of folks do and IMO Fox is no different that the other bias news media stations.

    Because the 'law' is infringing upon his right to hold that Bible study.
