Religious Freedom Under Attack Again

Once again it seems that religious freedom has come under attack.

An Arizona man has been arrested, sentenced to 60 days in jail, and fined $12,180 after a police raid earlier this week for holding a bible study in his home.
Yep, you read that correctly.  He regularly held bible studies in his OWN home and the city thought it would be a good use of the taxpayer's hard earned money to arrest this man.
 John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute believes the family is being discriminated against because of their faith. . . “The thing that I think is so shocking is that you might expect this in Iran or [some place] around the world … but happening in the United States, this is so shocking it’s beyond belief.”  READ MORE>>>>
Of course the city alleges that it was merely a zoning issue and had some safety concerns, "we have concerns about people being able to exit the facility properly in case there is a fire." Better hope the city of Phoenix doesn't hear that you're going to have your daughter's birthday party at your own house this weekend.

A little more information on the situation.
