Of course it's not that simple. I'm mocking the fact that this shouldn't be news.

INDY, flower, did either of you actually read the article?

This is just one over zealous code enforcer, that's it, don't fall for this...

I'm hoping you are smarter than this.

Permit on-street parking only on certain residential streets. It's great to actually be able to park on your own street.

The idea of not being able to park on a particular street is foreign to me.

I read it and was just stating a couple things nothing more nothing less.

but like I always say to each its own.

I wonder if I would get in trouble for have the wrong car parked in the wrong area because it cause traffic. HEY LOOK EVERYONE MY CAR IS PINK WITH POKA DOTS!

It was to me until I moved to an area bordering on an area which gets huge crowds at certain times a year. Not being able to park on your own street (or even more maddening -- being boxed in your own driveway by someone who just didn't want to pay to park in a lot) gets old really quick.

On the plus side, there are lots of fender-benders on these busy days to provide entertainment for the residents.

The permit only parking, which is actually only on a few of the most affected streets, and fairly aggressive ticketing/towing policy over the past couple of years has really helped the situation.

The article is very vague, and we're really only getting one side of the story. Perhaps the code enforcer needed to determine the difference between whether the gathering was a bible study or a full fledged church service. I'm sure there's some code against holding actual church services in a residential home... even if it were something as simple as a fire code. Again, it's not a specific religious issue, it's a zoning issue. A church is considered something of a business, and may not be allowed in a residential area. Just like I could get in trouble if I decided to open up a beauty parlor in my kitchen. The line between what is lawful could be determined simply by whether I was just doing nails, or if I was doing perms too. I might need a permit for one and not the other, but I wouldn't shout "hair discrimination!" over it if an official questioned me about it.

How big is a book club, usually? Five people? We don't know how many people are attending this bible study. It could be upwards of 20+. That's a lot of cars. I know I'd be pissed if I got home and found I couldn't park near my own home or pull into my own driveway because the street was packed with guests of a single neighbour... to me I wouldn't care whether they were praising God or frying a turkey in the back yard. They don't need to be parking their cars all over the place.

I never had problems when I went to bible studies either... and these were large gatherings of people... but we weren't blocking residential streets. Parking was done in a single, large, private driveway.

I wasn't referring to your panties, dear. I was referring to the people in the article.

It's only news because people want something to complain about, and certain groups of people love to imagine they're being discriminated against.

Car pool. Unless there is a large amount of people, that should be a win/win.

If this was simply a parking problem, why the intrusive questions about whether or not attendees said "Amen" or "praise the Lord"?

My only experience is dealing with all these fucking grad parties at this time of year. They're sell-outs, man.

Something about figuring out what kind of gathering to file it under as. I'm sure it wasn't as intrusive as the "we're oppressed Christians!" types were making it out to be.

The written warning to Jones noted an “unlawful use of land” and ordered him to stop hosting “religious assemblies.”
Seems pretty obvious to me.
