Check out this short blurb based on this "news" story, and then very honestly (willing to accept whatever truthful conclusions you find) ask yourself if the news outlet is portraying the situation accurately, and if the blogger is portraying the situation accurately or creating an issue where no real issue exists.
First of all, leave it to Fox News to pander to its conservative and evangelical base and say the Fromms were fined for having bible studies, when the truth is that they violated a city zoning code. I'm pretty sure there's no ordinance in California, or any other state, which prohibits "home bible-study groups".
If the Fromms had been hosting Tupperware parties, drawing upwards of 50 people, twice a week, they'd have received the same fine. They'd have been violating the zoning code. Same deal if upwards of 50 people had been coming over twice a week to watch football.
They violated a zoning code, and they were fined for it. The news outlets played up the "home bible-study group" angle, even though it has nothing to do with anything - except pandering to and stirring up their base.
Then, the blogger (who's obviously a Kool-aid drinking product of the Christian homeschooling movement) attempts to stir up religious fervor and fears, declaring "This is an outright assault on freedom of religion." Yeah, that's what it is. Geez. Stir em up. Get them all emotional, indignant, and threatened, and give them a cause - and make ignorant fools of them all. This person doesn't seem to be a person of faith so much as a person of a conservative sociopolitical cause, but probably perpetually confuses the two.
All the Fromms have to do is get a permit.
But no. Its Christian jihad time, baby! We're being assaulted!
That's some kind of faith being exhibited there, let me tell ya.
