A 2012 county ordinance came under fire Monday night after a group of citizens said it could limit religious freedom in Jackson County.
A crowd of over 100 people attended Monday’s Jackson County Board of Commissioners meeting to show their opposition to the ordinance, which limits temporary religious assemblies, such as tent revivals, to 15 days per year.
Greg Brockman of Jefferson spoke for the group and called on the BOC to amend the ordinance.
“Our concern is that the language could be used to limit or monitor home Bible studies, home church cell groups, home prayer meetings or any other small gathering that may be of a religious nature,” he said.
