    Wherever 3 or more are gathered is a church. There are some religious groups who have no church and meet weekly in others' homes. So now, it is a crime to assemble in large groups? What is the difference between having the boys over to watch the game and having your friends over for a Bible study?

    About 80 people, tax benefits, and a lack of emergency fire exits. That is the difference between this man and watching a football game. He wasn't having a few friends over for a bible study. HE WAS RUNNING A CHURCH. An actual church. With pews and everything. He told the government and the media it was a church. He was hosting large numbers of people.

    It wasn't 3 people. It was like 93. Look up your local fire code and you'll find the difference.

    If I put a building up around my barbeque, put up a menu with prices on it, and advertise the building as a restaurant, and collect small business tax benefits, I don't get to bypass health and fire codes by claiming it's just friends over for dinner.

Fortunately, local government now knows how to deal with law breaking ministers who harass government and block traffic.

    MLK and civil rights movement are not the same as a guy who claims he is building a garage then registers it as achurch and goes and does the same again for a "games room". He purposely misled the authorities to what end I do not know as he apparently could have built his church there if he only bothered to do so in a legal fashion. Ie got the right permits and built it according to code.

    You poor, poor discriminated against person, I feel so sorry for you as you swelter in that horrendous sweatshop with its walls constructed of fake history, delusions of discrimination and persecution of the righteous.

    What did he do that should have resulted in life imprisonment?

    Since he first entered the thread Joko has been trying and trying and trying to make this a Black issue. I don't know if he recently read a MLK book or maybe he saw a movie but the man is stuck on interjecting racial equality into this thread.

    That old dog won't hunt here, Joko.

    This is not the "Prove the movie isn't real" forum. What did Dr. King do that should have resulted in life imprisonment. And it better be something obvious because of "how easy crime was".

    Ahh you were replying to Joko. He does not feel that MLK should have been imprisoned for life, Joko is just trying to equate MLK to this moron emphasis on trying as they do not equate.
