You Think That?s Bad, I Used to Live By _____


A man in Rhode Island wants to silence church bells that he claims have ruined his marriage. His lawsuit claims the bells of St. Thomas More Catholic Parish disrupt his life and contributed to the end of his marriage. He is asking the court to order the church to reduce the number of bell claps and gongs so he can enjoy his property. The 64-year-old says the church bell didn't work when he and his now ex-wife bought their house 18 years ago. About six years later the bell was upgraded to operate electronically. The bell "clapped" and "gonged" at least 700 times a week, resulting in more than 36,000 times during the year. This apparently caused emotional distress, bad moods and arguments with his wife. The Catholic Diocese of Providence says the brief bell ringing is reasonable and well within its rights.
