    One Muslim on this site said that it is okay to kill those that prevent them from practicing Islam.... I wonder if they would consider a ban on blaring this crap as "preventing them from practicing Islam."

    Oh come on----you don't care about the noise--you don't want them to practice their religion. Why is it that so many Christians want to take away the rights of others? It really gives Christainity bad image don't you think?

    That is a tricky point.

    If they practice the religion minus the terrorism, that is one thing.

    If they also practice it by not broadcasting across loudspeakers for 2 minutes solid 5 times a day in a land where noise polution has laws, that is another thing.

    Both are serious issues.

    Add the point about Christ claiming no one comes to the Father but through Him, and you then have the correct perspective we all ought to have about the religion.

    You are correct in one aspect. We need to allow people to practice their religions. -But not at the point they encroach upon others.

    Christians have thier annoying habits of thier own too. Who decides the degree? I would like it to be done on a very local level but there is always some lawyer wanting an issue to make some bucks on. Jesus said there would be temptation . Wouldnt a Christian see this as another way to prove his faith?

    THAT is a difficult question.

    Good luck getting a corrupt system to allow it into the courtroom.

    Blasting the call to prayer is illegal in my mind. It imposes a religion upon those that do not wish to practice it. If Catholics decided to blast the our father or the nicene creed 5 times a day over loud speakers for all to hear, that too would be imposing their religion onto those who do not wish to practice it.

    This is clear cut violation of freedom of religion.

    You can not pass a law favoring one religion over another. If this goes through, then Catholics, Christians, Jews and any other religion can argue to have their "Call to prayer" blasted through loud speakers 5 times a day to a populace that does not practice all those religions. I for one do not want to hear that.
