Does anyone live near the intersection of Church and Flatbush and have to endure the religious folks who park those huge flatbeds filled with 3 to 6 foot high speakers to be used for preaching at all hours of the day and into the night, particularly on the weekends?
Do you know if there are any residential noise ordinances that make this illegal? The volume is really unbelievable.
I and the neighbors are unable to watch tv, listen to music, or even hold a conversation on the phone while this is going on because it is so loud.
I can endure it for an hour or two while the religious folks fulfill their need to impose their religion on the world around them, but once it hits the 3 hour mark, and extends into the double-digits of hours, it is really unbearable.
I've spoken to the police who have said they are pretty sure it's not legal (why they don't know definitively is beyond me), but they also feel their hands are tied because it is a "delicate issue" since it involves the church. I've never heard of such a thing. It's either legal, or not, I thought. Regardless, I'm certain if it were any other group or religion doing the same, it would be shut down in an instant.
Is there anything anyone can suggest for how to go about having noise violations enforced?
Or do people around here really enjoy this? If I find the feedback is that people really enjoy it, I'm not interested in pushing the issue, because maybe it's a cultural thing and I'll just have to roll with it, but maybe I'm not alone in wishing there was something that could be done bring a more civilized form of proselytizing and freedom of speech without it assaulting everyone and everything. The whole thing is particularly awful when it's the bolder religious hate group that starts preaching about wiping out and killing all Non-Black races. I can't imagine this is something people actually find pleasant to endure.
