Home Bible Study Group Threatened By San Diego County Official

A San Diego CA pastor and his wife, who have been holding Tuesday night bible studies for groups of about 15 people, claim a county official banged on their door on Good Friday demanding they answer a series of questions about these get-togethers. Some of the questions included whether the group said “amen” and “praise the Lord” and even if the group sang songs at their meetings!

Can you imagine how quickly every loud mouthed activist in the country would be booking flights into San Diego right now if this was a group of black folks being interrogated about their bible study sessions? Of course we would NEVER hear about this type of heavy handed government thuggery going down if the subjects were a bunch of Muslims hooking up to study the Koran.

A San Diego pastor and his wife claim they were interrogated by a county official and warned they will face escalating fines if they continue to hold Bible studies in their home.

The couple, whose names are being withheld until a demand letter can be filed on their behalf, told their attorney a county government employee knocked on their door on Good Friday, asking a litany of questions about their Tuesday night Bible studies, which are attended by approximately 15 people.

“Do you have a regular weekly meeting in your home? Do you sing? Do you say ‘amen’?” the official reportedly asked. “Do you say, ‘Praise the Lord’?”

The pastor’s wife answered yes.

She says she was then told, however, that she must stop holding “religious assemblies” until she and her husband obtain a Major Use Permit from the county, a permit that often involves traffic and environmental studies, compliance with parking and sidewalk regulations and costs that top tens of thousands of dollars.

And if they fail to pay for the MUP, the county official reportedly warned, the couple will be charged escalating fines beginning at $100, then $200, $500, $1000, “and then it will get ugly.”
