please. common sense tells us that the local PD has had it 'up to here' with multiple neighbors calling and complaining about cars parked in front
of their homes, trouble backing out of their driveways, no room for their company coming over, etcetera.
nothing to see here for gosh sakes. the township has to handle this in one way or another. there has probably been people out talking with the folks
where the praise & worship is taking place. this has probably a problem that has been on-going for some time. keep in mind these people these people
have built up to this number of visitors. that takes time. neighbors patience wears thin. yours would too if you lived there.
when people refuse to recognize how their actions are affecting others the situation may escalate into the ridiculous. you play with matches, you get
in a similar vein a PD / township has to do something about a household that has a Yard Sale every week-end of the year. how many phone calls do you
think the town & PD is going to field before they are pissed off? a handful of yard sales a year is one thing. running a junk business off your front
yard is another.
when a household has a steady flow of some 50 people gathering for praise & worship every Sunday there is probably a whole lot more the neighborhood
has to deal with as well. it's wonderful these people are active in their faith; good on them. for all we know they have other get-together's too.
shared dinners, Wednesday services maybe, counseling, etcetera.
use your common sense. if this was in your neighborhood you'd grow tired of it too. not everyone thrives in a city noise atmosphere. some
neighborhoods are quiet, peaceful. 50 people every Sunday = a lot of car doors slamming, a lot of internal combustion engines revving to life. admit
it or don't, that detracts from the week end solace of all the neighbors.
last, when there is 50 people regularly gathering every Sunday for services there easily exists the ability to combine donations for a rented space.
people grow churches / houses of worship like this, nothing new. the city in question has had their hand forced. there are often circumstances where
one particular party cannot be singled out, for fear of legal retribution. this has forced the town to go to ridiculous means to try and get these
people to seek a logical alternative meeting place by having to come into compliance with use of a permit.
they brought it on themselves. when people insist on standing out they will get noticed. the resulting attention may or may not be desirable.
