Are Home Bible Studies Illegal in San Diego?
Are home Bible studies illegal in San Diego? That’s the question many are asking after Pastor David Jones and his wife Mary, who live in San Diego, were told by the county of San Diego they needed to either stop their Bible study or get a costly permit.
For years, the couple has invited friends to their house for weekly Bible study sessions in much the same manner as other Americans have people over for cookouts, family reunions and Tupperware® parties. Because their gathering was religious in nature, according to a Fox News report today, they’ve been told they will have to spend thousands of dollars on the aforementioned permit.
According to several reports, including the 10 News report in this video, the Jones family will fight the county’s action. I expect they’ll receive a lot of support from across the country, too — and deservedly so!
