Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
|This is NOT the group complained about.|
There is still some concern with churches and homes where very loud religious gatherings are happening.
This is not a new issue. Now a radio host is concerned because she is awakened at 4 a.m. when the preaching starts to blare out from powerful speakers. Four a.m. is when people are in deep sleep and to disturb someone's good sleep is tantamount to a criminal activity. She said that she complained to the police but the loud preaching still goes on. Do churches have any respect for the neighbourhood who do not wish to worship at such an ungodly hour?
An honest hard working person, and even one less honest and active, needs a good night's sleep. We talk about being healthy and the importance of sleeping normal hours, but tolerate this bloody religious group that is causing a backache and a lower ache as well.
All I can say is that some denominations seem to think that shoving their religious doctrine down people's sleeping throats by yelling in the middle of the night will attract more followers.
