    Three Rings and You’re Out: Bishop Busted for Bells

    By Stephen Bloom | January 29, 2010

    Zero tolerance for church bells? Ring free zones?

    Instead of getting tough on dealers, Arizona prosecutors are going after pealers.

    It doesn’t ring true, but it is. Here’s the video report from Alliance Defense Fund:

    ADF is representing the bellringing Bishop in an appeal hearing of his criminal conviction and, in a separate civil case, is challenging the application of local noise ordinances to church bells.

    Question: Has the freedom of your church been threatened by overzealous government regulation?
