    Oh yeah, your fallaciously attributed quote may be from Thomas Mother F'in Jefferson but it sure ain't from Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President, no matter how much you wish it were.

    Did you hear that the county prosecutor, that sent this guy/priest to jail for 60 days, probation for 3 years and a $12K+ in fines, allowed Occupiers, who caused $200K in damages in the county, and were arrested for felonies go? He claimed they were "patriots".

    This sure smacks of political bias and anti-religion to me. Matter of fact it stinks of bias and using the law for political reasons.
    Every case is different as is each defendant. You probably didn't know that, Billy. You are comparing apples to aardvarks. If you can't see that it is because you don't want to.

    Salam is a convicted felon. Salam has been involved in a number of court cases. Salam has a history of being unlawful. Salam is clearly attempting to shuck and jive city and county government and anyone who is just too freaking stupid to believe otherwise.

    Hello?
    It was a reference to Katrina trailers. It was a joke. I didn't know you worked for FEMA. Lighten up.

    What rights was he infringing upon?

    You can't prove that. Just as you couldn't before. No matter how much you wish you could.

    Breaking the law and breaking the law for religious reasons are different how?

    What the hell does that mean? Are you saying that anything anyone wants to do in the name of religion should be legal?

    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.
    Where do you get the idea he was protesting on the freedom of religion count? How is it possible to claim freedom of religion based on what this guy did? He refused to comply with the codes, he was given ample opportunity to comply and thus become legal and still have his "bible study groups"

    freedom of religion does not permit you to break the law.

    IYO, my comparisons are not to your liking. The priest/guy made his decision to not put up Exit signs and not make his house/garage/building Handicapped Accessable and was arrested. He evidently weighed his right to his religious beliefs against going to jail for what he believed and chose to break the law and go to jail. He has brass, IMO.

    So, IYO, what should have the same prosecutor have done to the occupiers that cost the city $200K? Should he have called the patriots and let them go?
