I guess conservatives get to distort the truth too

This bothers me: San Juan Capistrano Fines Family for Reading Bible without Permit (link from Instapundit). What bothers me is not that the city is requiring a permit to read the bible, but that Reason is lying about what happened. If you read carefully, you will see that the family was having regular Bible studies with up to 50 people in a residential neighborhood.

Fifty people! That's enough to cause plenty of parking and other problems for their neighbors. Not only does that sound like a good reason to fine them, it sound like a good reason to censure them for being rude to their neighbors --even if they did get a permit.
