"Pastor David Jones and his wife Mary have been told they cannot invite friends to their San Diego, CA home for a Bible study - unless they are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars to San Diego County."

This is another example of the spiritual decline in the US. There is a definite double standard these days in US society and in the government. If this case involved Muslims or some other group studying the Koran or some other religious book, this probably would not be happening. There would be an outcry about the separation between church & state, and about how the government should not interfere in religious affairs. But it seems when it involves Christians the tables are turned. What ever happened to the First Amendment right to freely excercise a person's religious belief's ? I suspect things will not get any better, only worse.
