Thread Name: House Concerts a Federal Case
Subject: RE: House Concerts a Federal Case
Good point, Genie. Not too far from where I live four Buddhist monks bought a house. They were living there quietly until it was discovered that they occasionally held small meditation meetings. There weren't very many people who attended (it was only a small ranch house) but the neighbors got all up in arms because they claimed they were running a religious institution and the neighborhood wasn't zoned for it. There was quite an uproar but in the end I think I recall that the monks won their case. At any rate, they're still living in the house.
