Here’s what happens in an atheistic soft tyranny when people invite friends to their homes to discuss the Bible:
Homeowners Chuck and Stephanie Fromm, of San Juan Capistrano [which was founded by a priest as a Christian mission], were fined $300 earlier this month for holding what city officials called “a regular gathering of more than three people”.
That type of meeting would require a conditional use permit as defined by the city, according to Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), the couple’s legal representation.
The Fromms also reportedly face subsequent fines of $500 per meeting for any further “religious gatherings” in their home, according to PJI.
“We’re just gathering and enjoying each other’s company and fellowship. And we enjoy studying God’s word.” Stephanie Fromm told CBS2. …
Neighbors have written letters to the city in support of the Fromms, whom they said have not caused any disturbances with the meetings, according to PJI.
But it’s not about disturbing neighbors. It’s about flexing muscle, repressing Christianity, and raising funds for the local government.
We’ll know we’ve made the transition to a hard tyranny when people like the Fromms just disappear. It shouldn’t be long now.
