Pennsylvania Couple Fined for Using Farm for Bible Study, Prayer Groups

Wednesday, August 15, 2018 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , ,

(Worthy News) - A couple in Pennsylvania has been served a cease-and-desist order for using their 32-acre farm for private prayer groups.

Scott and Terri Fetterolf received the order in 2017 after the Borough of Sewickley Heights in Pennsylvania claimed 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.’”

The borough is charging $500 for each permit if the couple wants to continue hosting activities at their farm. [ Source: Christian Headlines (Read More...) ]

  1. This is a clear violation of the first amendment and falls into the "mob rule" category. It's time these progressives feel the sting of justice. I'm tired of reading about crap like this! Who do they think they are??

  2. This is becoming more and more prevalent in America. It will not be long before they start claiming the Bible is "Hate speech" and ban it from society. To make someone get a permit for Bible study is a complete breaking of the First Amendment. I know that area and it is in what many would call a liberal rich zone. But this is even a reach for them... the town council is just trying to see how far they can push before they are told to stop. Myself I would not stop my Bible studies for no man for they are more important that the air I breath and the food I eat.

  3. Really? Lewiston Idaho outlawed any and all home meetings (for worship or political or just a home based Avon) within it's city.

    in the late 80's.

    And which news published that one?

    We went underground a long time ago. The rest of the brethren should have too. Stop using the word "church" before it's too late.
