At 7 o’clock this morning, I woke up hearing music playing. It was loud enough that I could make out lyrics. It was Christian music. My wife and I searched the house and soon realized that it was coming from a church that, according to Google maps, is exactly 1,000 yards from my house. They were having a sunrise Easter service. According to their website, the service was indoors, playing outdoors on a large TV screen for people in their cars sitting in the parking lot, and live streaming for those at home. The music played from 6:45am to 7:15am, then the service began.

I heard it all.

Also according to Google Maps, there are 21 churches and a Synagogue within a 5 mile radius of my house. We decided it was time to get up and hurry out for breakfast before the post-church service rush.

I am not a religious person. I *do* support people and their religion. I am respectful, and will quietly bow my head when others pray. However, if I can be awakened by the music from your service inside of my house from a half a mile away, your shit is too loud. This is no better than having to deal with the Muslim call to prayer.

Have some respect for people who choose not to attend your church.

It was likely some weird atmospheric effect; sound reflecting off or refracting through a temperature inversion. Houses closer probably didn’t hear a thing, nor any farther away, just a ring at your hous’s distance.
At least you’ll beat the breakfast rush.
Happy Easter!

That’s asinine.

People in cars for services are like the people that come to church and sit in the lobby.

Go in, participate, or go home.

I’m with you. I have little tolerance for noise pollution. Doesn’t matter the source – a church blaring it or a shithead with a loud exhaust.

I should be able to shoot at them.

The church music is not “s***.”

Your post is though.

    What a thoughtful and well reasoned response. Everyone here at Sector Ocho has had their lives enriched by your display of logic and command of debate. Thank you.

    Since you are so intelligent and educated, please tell me what the difference is between this church blaring their music at sunrise, and:

    1 An Islamic church playing the call to prayer 5 times per day, beginning at 6 am
    2 A Satanic church blaring Satanic music during high mass at midnight
    3 A local night club blaring the NWA song “Fuck the Police” at 1am as a part of a BLM rally that they are hosting
    4 The post you just commented on

    Go ahead, I will wait.

      Please show me where in the Bible it says that celebrating Easter means using amplifiers to play music at a level that can be heard half a mile away?
      Cry me a fucking river, you fucking pussy.
      Don’t like it, you are free to not read this blog.
