    i went to this white church once when i was on vacation - everyone was singin like they were tryin to not wake each other up - just what the point of whisperin hymns to music is i sure dont know - specially since they had bells in the tower loud enough to waken the dead for 20 counties

    AmoS 5:21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
    AmoS 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
    AmoS 5:24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

    Sorry, but I agree with it.

    Using the weed eater analogy is weak. Who does their laws at night? And yall know as well as I do, if service starts at 7:30pm, it can go well into the night. The few times I've been in church, I seen where they was loud on purpose, in the hope that it would bring folks in off the street. And the point that is being over looked is people are only complaining when it's loud at night, when kids have to hit the bed for school, adults have to hit the bed for work in the morning, folks coming home from a hard days work and wants some peace and quiet.

    These folks that are in the church don't have that to worry about, when they go home,. they don't have to listen to the things they are subjecting other folks to. This is the number one reason I have contempt for religion, some folks think it takes precedence over everybody's rights.

    Peace!

    The church was there first. When the neighbors moved in they saw the church they saw the times, the choice was theirs.

    Yes, there is a noise ordnance even for the daytime, and using "praising god" can't be a justification for everything.

    Peace!

    So what you are saying is that people that owns the surrounding property doesn't have the right to develop that property as they see fit. It's secular law, a law that the bible says that followers have to abide by.

    It's easy for the hangman holding the rope not to have any complaints with it, his neck is not the one in the noose.

    Peace!

    They say that they were there first, well goole earth says that's true from some of the residence, but not all. So we have them skewing the facts a bit.

    Peace!
