Wine Country Vintners to Church: 'We Don't Want Your Kind Out Here!'
by Lori Sanada, the Weekly Standard TEMECULA, Calif., Aug. 20, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship ("The Barn") is gearing up to file a federal lawsuit against the County of Riverside, CA. in the event the County continues its ban on churches in the Temecula Wine Country, an area that is being expanded from approximately 7,000 acres to over 18,990 acres.
A public hearing will occur on Wednesday, August 22, 2012, over the fate of churches in this region. The hearing will position the Wine Country Vintner's Association against the church congregation and many other Christians from the area.
Trying to be a good neighbor, Pastor Clark Van Wick met with a few vintners in an attempt to appease them, but was told, "We don't want your kind out here."
