Please Register Your Bible Study with the Government

I was saddened to see that there is religious persecution taking place in San Diego, CA (link to article). The local authorities are threatening to force regular home Bible studies to get government permits or shut down. I wouldn't be surprised if we see copycat persecution in other jurisdictions within the next few years as radical anti-theists attempt to attack the freedoms of speech, religion, and assembly in every way they can.


H.T. to The Pilgrim for pointing this out to me (link).

T-fan -- tnx for this info.

I submit however that the attack is not an "attack on the freedoms of speech, religion, and assembly" but rather against specific content made possible by those freedoms: Christianity, and right-wing politics. That is because these are the only two threats to those that are behind the attacks. They would be willing to abolish freedom of this that or the other if that is the cost of destroying their real enemy. But mark my words, weekly home meetings of atheists, communists, or even Buddhists will somehow not come under these strictures.

I mostly agree with what you've said, Mr. Harris. Interestingly, the assemblies, religions, and speech that ought to be prohibited (for example, sodomite "marriage" ceremonies and wiccan paganism) will continue on unrestrained.
