    I have a large Pentecostal Church more or less near me (approx 1k away). They are partying right now, with an ex-Australian Idol singer that I can hear from here, right by my computer.

    Why they need to be so loud, I have no idea. It’s not like the neighbourhood likes the singer (I’ve heard enough loud music in this suburb to know how out of place she is) and I’m unaware of tales of Jesus miraculously curing people of their ability to hear.

    Grumble, grumble.

    This do is Sydney City Council, not a church affair…

    This do is Sydney City Council…

    Which I gathered. Lucky you. 😉

    At least the music finally stopped over here. At about 10pm.

    In all seriousness though, most Churches can throw a decent social event without blasting people’s eardrums. And maybe this is just latent anglo-fogeyism, but even as an atheist, I’d much rather the sound of bells in the morning than remaindered artists at night.

    Hope the do in Sydney was enjoyable.
