Government Engages in KGB-Type Harassment in Christian Church‏

February 26, 2015

Liberty Counsel sent a letter to the City of Lake Worth demanding it retract its stance that all local churches – some in the community for nearly 100 years – now obtain “business licenses” to continue operating. The city is also harassing a newly-established Common Ground Church by threatening its landlord with daily fines up to $500 and foreclosure if the “violation” is not corrected.

The City sent an employee to spy on Common Ground and record its worship activities. The employee’s statement reads like a report from behind the Iron Curtain describing illicit activity: “I walked back to the Coffee Bar and was able to visualize what appeared to be a ministry in progress,”including: “Rows of people sitting in chairs on both sides like a gathering setting.” “People holding what appeared to be bibles or religious books as one had a cross on it.” The report states that a video was captured on the “city phone” to be used “for future court presentation.”

Government employees are public servants and prohibited by the Constitution from inhibiting religious freedom. That is a far cry from sneaking around and into a church and acting like KGB agents.
