Rancho Cucamonga, CA – A city in the greater Los Angeles area that sparked national outrage for its attempts to shut down a home Bible study has conceded defeat while hinting that it might try to shutter similar groups.
The City of Rancho Cucamonga had sent a letter to a small home Bible study, demanding that it stop meeting unless it secured a costly and potentially unobtainable permit that is not required of comparable non-religious gatherings in homes. After receiving a letter from Pacific Justice Institute – and negative publicity nationwide – the City has reversed course and dropped its enforcement action. The Mayor and other City officials even visited the Friday night Bible study. Read the rest here from the Pacific Justice Institute.
