The people you believe you elected in good faith…your public servants…are plotting against your best interest.
A Florida city is ready to impose fines of $500 a day if the church doesn’t submit to this ridiculous threat. (Common Ground Church/Facebook)
Now it is good of Mr. Staver to step up to the plate on this matter…but why should he have had to?
Well there’s a good chance Lake Worth Florida, is not what you think it is. At the link below you’ll find some background which may be totally new to you, And frankly… Somewhat shocking! However, since you are the citizen of that community, everything that happens in that community is your responsibility.
For those with an interest to gain a deeper understanding the following link will provide you with a place from where to begin: Something is Wrong! I just can’t put my finger on it!
Have you detected that you have a problem in the city of Lake Worth? Actually… It appears you have several problems. Permit me to pose a few questions you may wish to share with your fellow citizens…
When running for office, the mayor and other fellow Councilman promoted themselves as candidates for public service. Now I’m not sure how you look at this, but to me, that means we have candidates representing themselves as running for public office, in a public institution; in this case the city of Lake Worth. Does that seem to agree with your point of view? and by the way, keep in mind that the elections registrar closely supervises all of these voting processes to ensure the legitimacy of the election, so the registrar of voters should be able to address this matter of what might turn out to be “Election Fraud!”
Okay so the election comes and goes and the mayor is elected. Some wheres between when he won the election and he took office a miraculous transition occurred.… Were you privileged to see it?
No? Well it doesn’t surprise me if you nor anyone else happened to notice that your mayor, a public office in a public institution magically became a corporate officer of a for-profit corporation, a branch of the master Corp. in Washington DC. A corporation that is mostly owned by the British crown.
Are you still with me?
So are you in a position to tell me at which point where your elected representative misrepresenting himself? Before the election or after he won the election? (Which by the way, as I understand it misrepresenting himself when running for public office is a crime). You might ask him to be sure.
If I may impose a bit more,
By now, aren’t you at least a bit curious as to why the city in which you live is a business? a for-profit corporation which belongs to a foreign entity.
Now a business organization has a specific functions to produce benefit to the owners of the corporation; the shareholders. By the way… Who might the shareholders be in your community?
On the other side of the equation a public institution is designed to provide benefit to the people; the clearly defined beneficiaries of the public trust.
So how is it possible that your city has been converted from a public institution into a for profit company, without your knowledge or possibly without your approval. Doesn’t this seem odd to you as well?
Liberty Counsel sent a letter to the City of Lake Worth demanding it retract its baseless position that all local churches—some in the community for nearly 100 years—now obtain “business licenses” to continue operating, and for its harassment of newly established Common Ground Church.
The City has threatened Common Ground’s landlord with daily fines up to $500 and foreclosure if the “violation” is not corrected by the landlord making the church get a “business license” to meet for worship.
Liberty Counsel has demanded that the City drop its plan to have churches obtain business licenses, refund the business license taxes already paid and retract its threat to Common Ground church and its landlord.
The City sent an employee to spy on Common Ground and record its worship activities. The city 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: “Someone speaking from a podium. … A (sic) overhead TV or projection with Scripture verse on it. … 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.”
The City’s actions are completely baseless. Lake Worth’s city ordinances specifically exempt churches and charitable organizations from needing a business license; state and federal law require local land use decisions to give equal treatment to secular and sacred assemblies; and the Free Exercise clause forbids government from prohibiting religious meetings. The coffee shop in which Common Ground Church meets has a business license, just as did the previous secular owner who hosted bands and similar gatherings.
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,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
