Brickbat: No Room at the Inn

|

The Los Angeles County Public Works Department has notified Grace Community Church it is terminating a lease for a parking lot the church has held since 1975. Church leaders say this is in retaliation for its so far successful challenge to state mandate's barring indoor church services. The county has repeatedly tried to get a court order to close the church without success. County officials had warned church leaders of "repercussions" if they did not comply with the mandates.

  2. Even the Mafia leaves churches alone. If any place ever deserved biblical plagues it’s California.

    2. So, frogs and locusts after the fires?

      1. Yeah, we’re already in Cecile B DeMille territory here. All that’s left if for Moses to come over the rise shouting, “From my cold dead hands!”

      2. Dogs and cats, living together…

  3. Also in the news the same prgressive/socialists in California want an eviction ban, you know if their victim status is correct.

    1. Just wondering – does that eviction ban include bans on evicting squatters? There’s some nice properties in CA I wouldn’t mind squatting on.

      Seriously, the thing about squatters, is the name squatter tells you what you need to know about how they change the property and leave it after awhile. Democrats don’t seem to be protecting other peoples’ property these days. I use “other” because Democrat mayors are assigning police to protect THEIR property and themselves.

  4. This behavior is what we need to call Fascism.

    Where government does not “own” and control the means of production like Socialism but so oppressively regulates effectively controlling means of production.

    Outside of Commifornia, this is seen as an attack on religious rights of worship, which violates the 1st Amendment.

    The DOJ should really send in the FBI to arrest any state bureaucrat or politician violating the constitutional rights of state residents.

    State officials that violate the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Amendments and deprive state residents of their federal constitutional rights.

    1. Yes, fascism does not own but controls the means of production. That an everything inside the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state

      1. He was always a better comparison than Hitler, and his bullies wore black – – – – – – – – –

  5. Small, mean and petty. Must be disgruntled Democrats.

    1. Who started their political careers as HOA officers?

      1. Hall monitors.

        1. Those kindergarteners who ratted their classmates out for taking an extra cookie.

          1. I recall half a dozen safety boys (5th and 6th graders who stand on corners and hold out their hands to stop litter kids when cars come by, when kids walk to school) decided to arrest a kid and drag him literally kicking and screaming into the school office for god knows what reason.

            I got the same feeling with that story of cops ticketing a solo surfer on the beach a few months back.

            Collapse of freedom and democracy comes from the masses giving the aborning dictator emergency powers.

            And Trump is the distracting phantom menace.

            1. ★ I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new…CSa after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

  6. No sympathy for the church, of all people, Christians, should know never make a deal with the devil.

  7. Oh, no! A church might be expected to pay its own way rather than leech off the public?

    Welcome to modern America, clingers. You are not going to like it. But you will comply.

    1. Hey palin’s buttplug, fuck off.

    2. A church might be expected to pay its own way
      They were paying $8,301.41 each month.

      1. Good job nailing the Rev’s ass on that one. Not only is he a troll, but a very stupid one at that.

      2. And the issue is rather overtly on principle. It doesn’t appear that they asked for more money, they simply terminated the lease. Presumably early, meaning the Church paid for services/access not yet delivered.

        1. Their letter says they are giving the required 30-days notice and will refund any excess payment. If the lot sits unused, that is a strong indicator that it was political.

      3. They must be raking in the big bucks if they can afford that just for their parking lot.

        1. Wikipedia states “As of 2008, the average weekly attendance was 8,258”.

        2. Their Senior pastor is a well known evangelical apologetic/theologian: John MacArthur, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_F._MacArthur

      4. What, you expect phonyRev to pay attention to facts?

    3. Top o’ the morning to you, miserable wretched troll.

    4. “a lease for a parking lot the church has held since 1975.”

      Fuck, you are stupid.

    5. It was lease. Meaning the church was paying for the parking. Try again.

      1. No, wait. Don’t try again. Just go away, Artshole.

  8. “lease”

    Hey aren’t you the idiot who didnt’t learn to capitalize words until the 5th grade?

    lol!

  9. Reason site is very good site but..READ MORE

    1. No thanks. I waste too much time on reason already.

  10. “The Democrats’ message to Americans is clear—if you don’t bow to every whim of tyranny, the government will come after you. ”

    Indeed. Can’t wait for the ENB article in which she tries to justify her vote for Biden as libertarian.

    1. Haven’t been around in a while. I’m surprised that they haven’t already dumped a “The Libertarian Case for Biden” shitpile already.

      If not ENB, then surely Shikha’s dropped some kind of “Orange Man Bad, Senile Man Good” steamer?

  11. Are they planning to use the lot for something else?

    Are they now going to close down the church for violating zoning ordinances on parking requirements?
