i imagine the Bert has that.. or maybe you are still trying to play a fool here.. As I have stated i have been there.. The light house in question is quite able t do just what he says it did.. I know you want to believe that those ever so good christians would never do that.. guess what [email protected]$$ they did,..
You want to sue me you fuctarded shyt bird. bring it on.. By the time my attorneys get done with you. You will be begging to settle..
oh and another thing.. This is going to be great to watch this fool mayor sanctimonious sneer get wiped off his face as the court finds against. Costs Beebe a pile of money. Mean while we Pagans will be worshiping in our own temple.
It is going to happen . It will happen and Arkansas is about to deliver up a lesson in why you DO NOT F*Ck with a person 1rst Amendment rights..
Good for you.. You choose the side of the bigots. your posts shows this to be true.
you need to lay off the broom and get some sense. This all has never been over religion, it's over zoning laws. Let them go downtown or some other location ( there is an old church off sale on hwy 31 just across the Railroad tracks) and I bet they can open their temple. There are store buildings for rent!

Why don't the pagans put a spell on their yard where it will stay green year round & doesn't need to be mowed! Seems like that would be the thing to do, no mowing & save $.........
Because, stupid person, real life isn't Harry Potter.

well think realistically ... unless you live in a tropical state like Florida, not even science can keep outdoor grass green all year around unless. Magic has to do with energy. You do it every day in fact. Every action you do is energy ... magic. One cannot simply sit in their chair and think "I want coffee" and poof there it is. You have to put energy into it. Grass is natural and has a mind of its own, it does what it naturally does. A witches effort is to cut the grass to keep it trim or let it go totally au natural (bugs!). And witches don't go against nature unless they're novice or totally control freakish. Most are not.

Bert Dahl is a self-proclaimed "high priest," who has, on some sites, claimed to have a "collage [sic] education," which is a lie and he actually misspelled "college." Additionally, he is so disorganized and has so little business sense that he picked up and moved from a trailer in El Paso, Arkansas, to Beebe and actually purchased property without first finding out what he could and could not do. A person of even average intelligence would have checked out the situation in Beebe, including the zoning laws, etc. before purchasing property. Now, he's attempting to excuse his failure to perform due diligence by claiming "discrimination." He has no one but himself to blame for the problems he's encountered.

Do you have anything to back up your assertions? Since when was 'business sense' a requirement for a group of people gathering to practice their religion in peace? So what if he lived in a trailer. Maybe he choose to live simply and humbly to save up funds for a better place. Isn't that supposed to be the American way and dream? Work hard, play by the rules and save first.

The key phrase is" play by the rules ". The entire issue is planning & zoning LAWS, not discrimination . Check the facts.

I don't agree with attacking someone because of how they live their Lives, so I'm sorry he said that. unless it's a house church it's common knowledge that you need the right permits. He really should have picked that up when he applied for a 503 C, if he ever did that.

If the zoning laws are unconstitutional and/or applied in a discriminatory fashion, then they are in opposition to the higher law of the land. Secondly, according to various articles, the family did check before moving. Thirdly, according to articles, the town admin has kept the family from getting the necessary paperwork. Lastly, there is already legislation in place to protect churches (of any religion) from being unfairly singled out by targeted zoning and obstructionist tactics. If a, c, and d, are allowed, there should be no specialized treatment for B.

We did wait and you know what happened? The ACLU told Dahl there were no Constitutional issues involved -- which everyone with any sense realized from the beginning -- and he couldn't find a private attorney to take his frivolous case. So he and his clueless wife packed up and high-tailed it to Florence, South Carolina, where they are now living, though they still haven't sold the dump they own in Beebe. Ol' Bert found out the hard way that he's not as smart as he thinks he is and that people aren't going to put up with his threats and other foolishness. But he's still whining and attacking people online.

Good luck going into the future. If the good Beebe wants to mix their god into politics.. Well this is America. And with out a doubt Beebe is going to get a lesson in civics. As well as learn that America is a secular nation. That does include Beebe..
Let's just all hope and pray that all this changes now that Trump is in office. Our constitution needs to be changed so these kind of people (pagan,heathen, infidel, idolater) so not have any rights as far as religion is concerned. Next will be pedophyles wanting their rights because they were born to prefer younger children.

They don't have a religion. They are pagan. Therefore their religious rights can not be violated because they do not have one.
