    PA Family Sues Govt. After Being Ordered to Stop Holding Bible Studies

    "A Pennsylvania family filed a lawsuit against a Pittsburgh suburb on Wednesday after being ordered by local officials to stop using their property for Bible studies and other Christian events.

    Sewickley Heights Borough, located 15 miles west of Pittsburgh, served Scott and Terri Fetterolf a cease and desist order last October stating the couple was violating local zoning ordinances by hosting Bible studies, worship events, religious retreats, religious fundraisers, picnics and weddings, something they and the prior owner have done for decades on the 35-acre farm property.

    the borough served the cease and desist order regarding hosting events after a neighbor who moved into the area within the last few years complained about the increased vehicle traffic some of the events brought.

    Samek said rather than addressing the traffic issue, the borough came in with a broad ruling prohibiting events as small as a Bible study for 10-15 people inside the couple’s home unless they apply ahead of time to get a conditional land use variance, which involves having a public hearing, with a 45-day comment period, and paying a fee of $20 to $40 for every event.

    If the Fetterolfs fail to follow this procedure, they will be fined $500 for each Bible study held.

    The complaint notes that those hosting non-religous gatherings such as book clubs, bonfires, farm-to-table events, political fundraisers, equestrian club meetings, and garden club meetings — to name some which are happening on others’ similarly zoned properties — are not being told to cease and desist under the threat of financial penalties, while their clients are.

    “Government should not target religious activities for punishment, particularly when similar secular activities are permitted.” Samek said in a statement released by the Independence Law Center."

    The jews are actually guilty of the crimes their accused of.

    Government workers and administrators there are bribed everyday to tow the Marxist line. The economy still and has been well enough to pay a lot of people off to keep any organized descent under thumb. Perhaps a end times Mad Max world would make it difficult enough for Satan and his children----- not to bride our people to sell each other out and face extintion.
