Some people should have a big ‘S’ stamped on their forehead (for STUPID) so you know to stay away from them.

“700 times a week?”

There’s only 168 hours in a week. Methinks he got his math wrong.

I hear Mohammed had people shout from minarets because he didn’t like bells.

If this problem started before Francis succeeded Benedict XVI, this guy is suing the wrong pope.

A Rhode Island man has filed a federal lawsuit against Pope Francis and others, claiming the frequent bell-ringing of the Catholic church across the street has disrupted his life so much, it helped precipitate the demise of his marriage.

As my dad used to say, "hell's bells!"

So these bells go off 4 times an hour for 24 hours 7 days a week?

Maybe he just has a ringing sound in his ears.

Perhaps they could move a mosque in next door and he could listen to the call to prayer all day long. He could complain about that and they could burn his house down with him in it.

He probably has tinnitus and the bells follow him around.

I imagine the church and its bells were there first.

Including the pope in the lawsuit reveals that he doesn’t know much about the structure of the Catholic Church. The pope does not regulate the operation of church bells at local parishes! If the man has a beef, he should sue the local archdiocese or - if the church is run by a religious order - he would sue the regional jurisdiction of that order.

I have nothing against church bells, but if it’s true they are amplified and going off 24/7, the old coot might have a point. I think ringing the bell on the hour between 7 am and 9 pm should be plenty, or even just when a service is about to be held. And it also depends on how loud they are and what city ordinances allow. I myself have complained to city officials (with no response, of course) concerning the noise caused by overnight deliveries to a grocery store adjacent to my residential neighborhood - banging metal doors, the flatulence of air brakes, the roar of diesel engines, the thump of pallets being dropped, etc.

“I’m not getting any response back from the people that control the bell-ringing.”

Of course not...they can't hear you. Call them when the bells aren't ringing.
