San Diego Will Not Require Permit for Bible Study

Just to close the loop on this post, (ht: 5 pt. Salt) reports that San Diego County has decided not to force David Jones to obtain a religious assembly permit for holding a Bible study in his home.

Just a couple of observations on my part:

1.  It seems as though the code enforcer was a bit overzealous in the first instance

2. It’s important for home Bible studies to be considerate of neighbors

3. Regardless, we should be thankful for our religious freedom.  It’s probably more tenuous than we think.


Couple Ordered to Stop Holding Bible Study at Home Without Permit

From FoxNews:

Pastor David Jones and his wife Mary have been told that they cannot invite friends to their San Diego, Calif. home for a Bible study — unless they are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars to San Diego County.
