This church needs to file a lawsuit against the City of Bloomington for discrimination. Government can’t pick and choose who they want to fine or put out of business.
Any lawyers willing to help them out? The City has unlimited funds – or at least they think they do!
Meanwhile, nobody is helping them out.

Bloomington inspectors have gone after a church trying to help homeless people. Details here: http://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/government-and-politics/bloomington-church-given-month-to-fix-code-violations/article_782de82a-1ebb-5b69-ba7d-42a8128386d0.html?utm_content=bufferdc77f&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=LEEDCC#tracking-source=home-top-story-1
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help this church, they are WAY short of their goal. Please help them if you can: https://www.gofundme.com/abundantlifebn
Evidently the inspectors don’t treat everyone equally. Below are pics from today on the west side of Bloomington. People are living outside, trash is everywhere, and hazardous buildings are allowed to stay – one for decades since trees are growing inside the shell. Another looks fire-damaged.
The City is torturing a church trying to help people while ignoring violations really close to the West Gateway to Bloomington. Locked vehicles have been broken into in this area. Trash is everywhere, it really says Welcome To Bloomington!
Justice isn’t close to equal!
