    Bishop punished for ringing church bells (OneNewsNow.com)

    But Muslims were not denied use of loudspeakers for call to prayer in Dearborn, MI.

    Do Muslims have more rights than Christians in this country?

    These are all local ordinances not national laws, and in different states no less. Hardly enough to come to a conclusion. I bet they wouldn't allow the loudspeakers in Phoenix and that they'd be fine with bells in the Michigan area.

    Although the loudspeakers raise interesting quarrels over free expression that bothers the public.

    In Seattle street musicians are not allowed to use amplifiers, though sometimes they let it slide if it's not too loud, but the religious rallies (so far all I've seen are christian ones) are allowed to use full audio systems and broadcast their stuff several blocks ... different cities have very different laws as you pointed out.

    If the comparison to road traffic is accurate (comparing decibels), then the ruling is moronic

    Uh...if the laws in Phoenix and Michigan are identical, then yes.

    100 decibles is usually the limit.
