Not a shocking headline, this type of things happens every day in China, India and other places the world over where Christianity is often greeted with open hostility, you know places like Rancho Cucamonga, California U.S.A.
And this isnt the first time its happened in California. This is the second time in the past six months that Rancho Cucamonga has targeted a home church group for extinction. The city of Rancho Cucamonga, located to the east of Los Angeles in San Bernadino County is now going after a Friday night group that meets in a private home....

I am having a hard time telling from the article if this is a Bible study or actual church services.
Just bankrupt the damn California municipalities and counties, no one will miss them.

The people holding the home gathering claim its a bible study - the city of Rancho Cucamonga claims its a church service...however the group has a church. So the city’s claim doesn’t seem to stand up to scrutiny
I suppose limiting the number of vehicles in front of a house and parked on the street is a city function but trying to regulate bible studies is a no-no. Would this apply to Koran studies too? How do they feel about Mexicans congregating to dig a hole to cook a goat in?

Other than being virulently anti-Christian, what could possibly be the cities motive I wonder.
That was my take.
What’s wrong with cooking a goat in a hole? We did that with a pig for our wedding- Big fun! And good eating!
But you’d think they would want to regulate that too, wouldn’t you?
Um these municipalities are going to run smack into a freedom of religion issue. The first century church met and worshiped in each others homes. All they will have to do is claim that it is a religious issue and they will be screwed.
God will not be denied by men.
