    Again, for clarity, he broke the law and thus will pay the penalty.
    Wrong. He applied to the city to build a recreation room. He lied, he was not honest. Are you aware of the differences between recreation room and church?

    So, uh, hmmm, what do your practioners look like? Are we talking Old Testament or, uh, New(er) Testament? Knowing this might sway my opinion.

    Demonstrably false assertion:

    "City officials determined that the weekly gatherings constituted a church "

    This is the city interpreting what is or is not a church. So I suppose if you had weekly beer parties you coud be charged with running an illegal tavern... i guess? Or weekly BBQ, and illegal restaurant?

    This does look like an obvious and clear attack on religious freedom.

    Wrong, bro. Salam applied to the State of Arizona for recognition as church using his home address as the church address. Go back in the thread and read all that. You'll find a link to the document on an Arizona state government web site. He applied to the city to build a recreation room. Go back from the beginning and read the thread. You don't have me all the information. You can use legal documents or you can use Fox News and Glenn Beck.

    No, the city determined that weekly bible study in a building on a property titled as a CHURCH is a CHURCH.

    I have better things to do. I only read the original article.

    Were they accepted as a "church" or not, as per their application.

    They look naked. Naked is biblical and encompasses beer guts, cellulite, stretch marks and less than perfect bodies. "Nekkid" is lascivious and includes air brushing, silicone and unsustainable dieting. We have Old Testament bodies practicing New(er) Testament religion.

    Not sure where you get that from, "Do your own damned research". Risky was the one who posted the links to the more detailed articles and the AZ state records website. If you can't be bothered to gather all of the details that's totally within your rights....but baseless accusations are just petty and childish.
