Maybe this is because of the new Sharia law school in Toronto. ;)

Am getting sooooooo tired of the news, nothing but a horde of media exclaiming the horrors of the Trump, while a valiant few point out that the horde's breaking news is flawed and biased. The horde ignore the valiant few's corrections and continue their anti Trump crusade.

Day after day, rather like the 'Siege of Malta.'

CEASE & DESIST: Town Orders Family to Stop Hosting Bible Studies on Farm
By
Todd Starnes -
July 18, 2018

The owners of a Pennsylvania farm have been ordered by the Sewickley Heights Borough to cease and desist holding Bible studies on their private property.

Borough leaders accused Scott and Terri Fetterolf of improperly using their 35-acre farm as a place of worship, a place of assembly and as a commercial venue.

They were served a cease-and-desist order in October 2017, the Post-Gazette reported.

There may be more to this then is in the article, maybe sellin stuff or something like that.

But if it's about other stuff why ban bible class?

There is more to the story:

Quote:
The 83-year-old farm, which is located at 528 Scaife Road, is located in an Historical-Rural Residential District, contends Katie Stringent, borough manager and zoning officer. Ms. Stringent’s order said the farm was being used improperly as a place of worship, a place of assembly, and as a commercial venue and “special studio or school.”

According to the borough’s website, those activities are not permitted on the property, or on



And

Quote:
Mrs. Fetterolf and her husband, a local home builder, purchased the 32-acre farm about two years ago and began providing commercial activities, including a yarn and wool shop, sales of cut flowers and fresh honey, a weekly produce stand, educational classes, and other programs. Mrs. Fetterolf has also hosted private events, including bridal showers, prayer groups and church fundraisers.

In October 2017, Mrs. Fetterolf was informed by the borough that she was holding too many events and would need permits — costing $500 each— to continue offering many of the activities.

I would venture a guess that the “commercial activities”:
commercial activities, including a yarn and wool shop, sales of cut flowers and fresh honey, a weekly produce stand, educational classes, and other programs, are what were the biggest issue.

Mr. Fetterolf I saw a home builder, so he presumably has a basic understanding of zoning laws &requirements.

It could be that had their extra activities been just “bible class” the borough might have let them slide, but once they started doing all that other stuff, once you factor in all the other stuff, the borough then sought a restraining order for everything other than what the property was strictly zoned for.

When I still lived up in the Chicago area, I lived in/was part owner of a 2 unit apartment building, with a finished basement. I live down in the basement, my sister and (then) brother in law, lived in the 2nd floor unit, while the first floor unit was rented out. We rented the unit to a family consisting of a mother and father, a grandma, and 3 kids (and then Soon a 4th on the way).
About a month after they moved in, one Sunday evening, we noticed singing coming from the rental unit, from the living room. They were signing hymns, and we later found out that every other Sunday evening they hosted a worship service in their apartment. There were usually 2-3 other families that joined them.

It didn’t bother me that much as Sunday nights I would watch the Sopranos directly below where they were holding their religious services.
It did used to bug the crap out of my then brother in law (which was a plus for me).

The apartment wasn’t zoned for holding religious services...but I didn’t go to the trouble of checking with the city if the family was violating any zoning laws.
We did review the lease but there was nothing in the lease saying they could not hold worship services (something like that would have never even dawned on us to add to the lease).

They moved out about a year and a half after they moved in. That 4th child they had meant 7 people in total and I guess it wad just too crowded for them seeing that the apartment had only 3 bedrooms.

'Singing', seems to be a trademark of Christians from way, way back.

A Roman administrator was asked if Christians were causing problems, his reply was 'Not really, other then their singing as the sun raises there's never a peep out of them.'

I wonder if he wasn't mixing Christians with some sun god sect.
