Court blasts city's ban on sound of church bells
A federal judge in Arizona has struck down a Phoenix noise ordinance against sounds generated by religious worship – settling one part of a dispute that erupted when city officials convicted a bishop and sentenced him to a suspended jail sentence and several years of probation because someone complained about the ringing of his church bells.

"Churches shouldn't be targeted and punished for ringing their bells as a public expression of faith that's been done for centuries," said Erik Stanley, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, which worked on the case.

I wonder if this "call to worship" (which is what church bell ringing usually signifies) is actually convicting some of these same people who are complaining of "noise" of their sinful state.

Crazy laws/ordinances like this one makes me wonder if the city officials have too much time on their hands... Maybe they should be assigned some community volunteer work like feeding the hungry or helping the homeless find a place to live. They just might begin to appreciate the local churches and their ministries.
