HOME BIBLE STUDY FINED


San Juan Capistrano, CA -- 2011: Chuck and Stephanie Fromm were fined $300 and ordered to stop holding a regular Bible study at their home. The meeting violates a city ordinance as a "church" and not as a private gathering, they were told. They also face additional charges of $500 per meeting for any further "religious gatherings" in their home, according to the Pacific Justice Institute, which is representing the couple in a legal fight to get the city's decision overturned.
