posted on December 19, 2016

For Yahoo News, Brandon Ambrosino reports that Patapsco United Methodist Church in Maryland has been served with a $12,000 county fine for housing homeless people. The fine comes after a neighbor complained. The Rev. Katie Grover, the church’s pastor, said, “I’m not trying to be adversarial with anyone.
