    I think the proper punishment would be by a public hanging.

    There are far too many "stupid laws" that go against our Constitution. This "free country" of ours has the largest prison population on the planet.

    We the People need to take our country back from the "thugs" that run it.

    Interesting, I've been trying to get the cops to tell my neighbour to keep it down, every weekend during the summer they have loud parties until 3-4 in the morning and they say that since we are in the country they cannot do anything.

    Most likely some of his neighbors are atheists and did not like bible study in their neighborhood. It would not shock me if they had found one or more atheist organizations to help them in their fight. Maybe helped them with a lawyer. That is usually how these things go.

    Or maybe they were crazy Christians who didn't feel his branch of Christianity was as righteous as theirs.... and maybe they got some crazy terrorist group like One Million Moms on board.

    If you want to exercise your religion in the privacy of your own home, you have every right to do so, but only if you get permission from the government first.

    We are already given the freedom of religion. It is already okay-ed.

    No, we must get permission from the government first, his arrest proves that.

    Hopefully his bible study friends can club together and pay the fine.

    your making my point. thats why they start them out young and fill them with fear. reading them a book and telling them if they don't believe its true their going to be tortured for eternity. repeating that to a young child over and over again as they grow up is brainwashing. why don't young leave the children out of it until their 12 and see how many are convinced then.
  • ed jesus c... 2012/07/12 09:17:34
    nobody has forced and one to go to church or to a bible study group so you will have to do better than that. god still loves you even if you hate him god still loves you
  • jesus c... ed 2012/07/14 06:17:26
    jesus christ
    millions of children in this country are forced to go to church? millions of children are told from birth that if they don't believe the ridiculous stories in the bible they are going to be tortured for eternaty? when you do that to a child it is brain washing. the catholic church knows it. they have a saying. give them to us until their eight and we'll have them for life. if you want to teach that to a mentally sane adult fine. i wouldn't even care if you taught it to children, but christians can't help but threaten them with eternal torture.

    Speaking of brainwashing, liberals prefer Hitler youth style public schooling.

    Progressive ideology came from National Socialist teachings. Even without the facts it is easy to see the correlation since Hitler was a God hating evolutionist too.

    Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord [p. 60]. Adolf Hitler Mein Kamf

    the idea that the majority of nazis were atheist is ridiculous. the first treaty HItler signed and the only one he never broke was with the vatican. the nazis that escaped europe did it on vatican visas.

    What do you expect in a wicked and degenerate nation?

    More intense persecution will happen, for no better reason than to remind American Christians that they're supposed to be Christian Americans, their first love Jesus, not this world.

    It is pretty sad though, especially when we're supposed to have private property and religious freedom, but as this shows, neither exist and we're subject to being tossed into a cage like an animal when the collective decides what you may do with their property that you live on and pay taxes for.

    No religion in the world, as mad as this, no one has access in ones private life, even his own religion.

    Provided s/he has the consent of all involved, what a person does in his/her home is none of the government's damned business. This isn't about religion, it's about control.

    It's great to see Christians harassed for a change. lol
  • bman~AV... Che Gue... 2012/07/11 05:58:43
    So Che you're saying that you're o.k. with having your Constitutional rights stomped all over? Because that's exactly what's happening here. Say you and a bunch of your friends got together every week and for whatever reason you chose and got arrested for it. You would be fine with this? Because I believe I can pretty much guarantee you that it can happen.
  • Che Gue... bman~AV... 2012/07/11 06:25:14

    Christians don't seem to have a problem stomping on others people rights. I think it is a hilarious turn of events.
  • bman~AV... Che Gue... 2012/07/11 19:52:35
    That's all fine and dandy Che but think about it like this. You and your friends are minding your own business on your own property and out of nowhere the police come and snap you up because your idiot neighbors decided you guys are having too much fun even though you're not bothering a soul. And that's my question to you. Do you think that's cool that the state can come in and arrest you and put you in jail for what amounts to nothing? Never mind what they were meeting for. They weren't bothering any one. Let's say you and all your friends are just in your building smoking and the neighbors just don't like smokers so they have you arrested for it. Is this o.k. with you? Because I can tell you this. I don't think it's o.k. that you can have your constitutional rights stomped all over. And that's what I see here

    Yes, it is ok because che is communist. He doesn't believe in liberties and freedom.

    I don't trust your link for the entire story. It didn't appear as news rather as opinion. Obviously he must have been disturbing his neighbors in some way. Freedom of religion is of course sacrosanct but there are reasons for zoning laws etc. One person's freedom ends where another person's rights begin. Seems to me an accommodation could have been made for all parties. Appeal it, let the courts decide. Maybe some of your posters could help with his legal expenses?
