Thus it begins

Thomas Peters passes on the regrettable news that a Texas clergyman has actually been sentenced for ten days in jail for ringing the bells of his church; his appeal was denied.

Interestingly enough, the law regarding excessive "noise" has exemptions for ice cream trucks but not for churches [more].

Thus the persecution begins.


  1. Have people gone completely insane in this country???

  2. To ask "what is this world coming to?" is not nearly strong enough, yet it is all I can think of. When did America decide simple common sense was improper and untoward? Hopefully cooler heads will prevail, but if not, perhaps your ominous statement will prove true.
