A Beebe pagan temple has been allegedly banned this week by a town in Arkansas due to it being a place of worship that is not Christian. Bertram Dahl, a disabled veteran, was hoping to open the pagan temple and reportedly had the support of both neighbors and some city officials in Beebe. However, when it was discovered that the place of worship would be one that didn’t honor the Christian God, RawStory News reveals this Thursday, June 19, that such backing was quickly withdrawn and replaced with hostility.
Apparently there is an official aspect to this “ban,” too. Although I can’t see how the First Amendment permits government officials to forbid a house of worship from even opening.
