A southern California couple has been fined $300 dollars for holding Christian Bible study sessions in their home, and could face another $500 for each additional gathering.

We are already starting to see the push by government to make all bible study, home or otherwise, illegal

City officials in San Juan Capistrano, Calif. say Chuck and Stephanie Fromm are in violation of municipal code 9-3.301, which prohibits “religious, fraternal or non-profit” organizations in residential neighborhoods without a permit. Stephanie hosts a Wednesday Bible study that draws about 20 attendees, and Chuck holds a Sunday service that gets about 50.

The Fromms appealed their citations but were denied and warned future sessions would carry heftier penalties. A statement from the Pacific Justice Institute, which is defending the couple in a lawsuit against the city, said Chuck Fromm was also told regular gatherings of three or more people require a conditional use permit, which can be costly and difficult to obtain.

“How dare they tell us we can’t have whatever we want in our home,” Stephanie Fromm told the Capistrano Dispatch. “We want to be able to use our home. We’ve paid a lot and invested a lot in our home and backyard … I should be able to be hospitable in my home.”

According to the Dispatch, the Fromms live in a neighborhood with large homes and have a corral, barn, pool and huge back lawn on their property, so parking and noise aren’t a problem.

“There’s no singing or music,” Stephanie said. “It’s meditative.”

The Dispatch reported a code-enforcement officer gave the Fromms a verbal warning about the meetings in May, then returned to issue citations in June and July. According to the paper, the city’s code-enforcement department is reactive, meaning they only respond to complaints. source – The Blaze

    If its in the law, its there for a reason. What is that reason I wonder, was there other religious sects causing a nuisance? A little strange.

  • I live in San Diego, this was on the news some time ago. The neighbors complained because there was ‘too many cars’ parked along the street and one neighbor complained about it.

    If this was a Tupperware party the neighbors would not of complained, but since it was a Bible study they complained.

  • While I agree that we should be able to be hospitable in our own homes, and would defend our right to hold Bible studies therein, the complaint from the neighbor regarding the parking is not surprising. If it was a Tupperware party, no, they probably would not have complained. However, since this is a twice-weekly occurrence, it would almost be expected for them to do so – just like they do when churches have attendees parking in the surrounding neighborhoods…

    Parking was not an issue, they have a lot of land.

  • This sounds more like a zoning ordinance violation than it does religious persecution. As gods people we are to obey civil laws and authorities as long as they don’t cause us to sin or deny Christ. It does not sound like this is the case. from the sounds of the size and purpose of the meeting’s it is a clear violation of the ordinance. Do I like it? No. But the way that it is being handled, it is disobedience and repentance is in order

  • Jeff — There can be no ordinance that makes Bible studies in your home “unlawful”. When you think that a city ordinance is something that should be obeyed rather than God — in holding Bible studies in your home — you are skewered in your priorities. NO!! We DO NOT OBEY MAN RATHER THAN GOD!! NO!! WE DO NOT SUBMIT TO A STALINIST OR COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT THAT TRIES TO USE ZONING TO MAKE BIBLE STUDIES ILLEGAL!! Communism uses ZONING to control what people do. It’s a DISGRACE that you took the side of Satan against Christians. You are the one in disobedience to God’s Word who needs to repent. Little communist rather than Christian in your attitudes. Repent, Jeff!! Repent.

    This is crazy and I believe illegal.Petitions and phone calls to all State Officals will do the trick to overturn this stupid law. Fight or you an the people of America are In very deep trouble.

  • Prp

    Christians need to stand up together In unity and fight for our rights! This could mean large familys will not be able to worship in their own homes! Pray for mercy on those who are against us! End times are near!

  • daisy arteaga

    This is just another way of the city trying to make $$$ instead what they should do is reinstate new policies with the police department about what calls is considered priorities that they need to respond to and not send them out for things like this and mispend our hard earn money!! It’s been stated that they have a fairly large home located on arces and acres of land with no loud music. Then what’s the point on paying property taxes ?? Right id thought so besides no one is in harm’s way if anything it brings communities together. Keep praising the lord and leave them alone

  • Chris

    This law needs to be fought against and changed. There are also laws at schools that prohibit Christian youth groups gem meeting there. The unfair part is that they will allow Anti-Christian groups to meet and I don’t mean the sports, music, language, Speech, or National Honor Soceity. We are losing our rights all over America. We need to start standing up for them or we are in the wrong. Pray that all Christians will continue fighting the war for Christianity!

  • Leave it to california to lead the way in sending this country straight to HELL. They’ve been doing it for years. Next they’ll be kicking in your front doors if you’re caught praying at the dinner table. Bunch of communist B.S. California needs to fall off into the pacific ocean. Wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit!!!

  • When did the states/cities move away from the constitution? Does the constitution state, separation of church and state? I think this would fall under that premise!!! When did cities get the authority to do this? Because the city can not supersede the state law??????? I’m just a thinker, trying to figure out how they are getting away with this.

    And no Amway mtgs., Tupperware parties, Salad Master presentations, etc.!!!!
    Ya Danged hooligans!!!
    There goes the neighborhood!!!

  • Gregg Bates

    According to the way the article reads, my family would be in violation at dinner when the four of us hold hands around the dinner table and give thanks. We also do same in public resturants, is that public indecency or something?
