You'll be happy to know that Muslim call to prayer shall be replacing it soon enough, followed by the tormented screams of those consumed by the dark fires of the Underworld!

Welcome to the neighborhood!

(No seriously - you you will long for the days when church bells were the least of your worries.)

Even the Lions aren't messing with the Christians. They played on Saturday.

I agree with you, Kissa.

And sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one in church singing songs like they were metal.

9AM? Get your lazy ass out of bed.

Oh and here are the Muslim prayer times:

Fajr 05:56 AM
Sunrise 07:17 AM
Dhuhr 11:56 AM
Asr 02:16 PM
Maghrib 04:35 PM
Isha'a 05:56 PM

And here are the traditional Roman Catholic times:

Canonical hours
Traditional Roman Breviary

By the end of the 5th century, the Liturgy of the Hours was composed of seven offices. Of these seven, Compline seems to have been the last to appear, because the 4th century Apostolic Constitutions VIII iv 34 do not mention it in the exhortation "Offer up your prayers in the morning, at the third hour, the sixth, the ninth, the evening, and at cock-crowing".[9] An eighth office, Prime, was added by Benedict of Nursia in the 6th century. These eight are known by the following names, which do not reflect the times of the day at which in the second millennium they were traditionally recited, as shown by the use of the word "noon", derived from Latin (hora) nona,[10][11] to mean midday, not 3 in the afternoon:

(A.) Matins (during the night, at midnight with some); also called Vigils or Nocturns or, in monastic usage, the Night Office
(B.) Lauds or Dawn Prayer (at Dawn, or 3 a.m.)
(C.) Prime or Early Morning Prayer (First Hour = approximately 6 a.m.)
(D.) Terce or Mid-Morning Prayer (Third Hour = approximately 9 a.m.)
(E.) Sext or Midday Prayer (Sixth Hour = approximately 12 noon)
(F.) None or Mid-Afternoon Prayer (Ninth Hour = approximately 3 p.m.)
(G.) Vespers or Evening Prayer ("at the lighting of the lamps", generally at 6 p.m.)
(H.) Compline or Night Prayer (before retiring, generally at 9 p.m.)

This arrangement of the Liturgy of the Hours is attributed to Saint Benedict. However, it is found in Saint John Cassian's Institutes and Conferences,[12] which describe the monastic practices of the Desert Fathers of Egypt.
-- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liturgy_of_the_Hours

There's nothing new under the sun, especially in a radical innovative faith. At least, NYC Muslims get a sound night's sleep, none of this pray at 9pm at Compline and be woken for Matins three hours later..

Christmas and Easter?

How are you with secular fireworks on the Fourth of July and New Years?

What a tough life you live.

Not to mention every high school playoff game and concert (which at least earns money!) I guess it depends how close you live: even Disneyland fireworks can get tiresome.

And, it should be legal to catch and eat (or mulch with) yapping dogs, with a reasonable range weapon: matchlock pistol, shortbow, sling....

Umm...no offense meant, Koldie.

We used to live above both a church and a metal-nightclub. The nightclub was far less noisy, and was subject to more rules.

Yeah, wait a minute, if it's only a few times a year, that's the sort of thing which is neighborly to ignore.

By the way, Kissa, that Ghost song you posted on Friday is bad-ass; I've had it on repeat all day, and it makes me laugh and laugh.

I live a few blocks away from a stupid church and every krimmas, easter, etc ... starting at 9am, and nearly every hour after that, the loud bells go off. I find it extremely rude to annoy people with loud sounds so early in the morning. It's not neighborly nor respectful, especially coming from a group that wants respect for their moronic, imaginary beliefs. Christians to the Lions!



...and Merry Krimmas asshats! devil


Mmm...liberal tolerance.

As far as some of you mentioning Islam and the call to prayer 5 times a day... Islam is the most disgusting of all the popular imaginary beliefs and all mosques should be razed to the ground.
