Government Permission To Hold Church in Rogers

The City of Rogers has asked a religious group to obtain the "proper permits" before holding church services in their home. The story is here. This group is apparently some sort of non-Christian Jewish offshoot (as opposed to fulfilled Judism called Christianity). The nature of the sect is not the point. The point is that the only government permit these people should need to assemble and exercise their religion is the Constitution of the United States. The city of Rogers should back off.

Now I understand that there is a problem with parking, but that is a separate issue. If someone who attends that service is parked too far in the street or something, then ticket that car for that. The idea that we need approval from multiple layers of government to do things that the highest law in the land clearly authorizes us to do is rubbish.
