His face sure rings a bell ...

Can you imagine this? A church is facing a fine of €5,000 per day for ringing the bell for morning mass, or at least ringing it too loud. Guess where? Not in Singapore where you can go to jail for chewing gum without a prescription. Not in Wisconsin where it's illegal to throw dynamite in a lake to catch fish.

Nope. This outrage is in the most liberal country on the planet -- the Netherlands.

Maybe it's me but what if they tried issuing a noise complaint against a mosque for the call to prayer or a temple's cantor for singing so loud people outside could hear it?
