Call to Prayer in Michigan

Has anyone kept up with the Michigan town that allowed the local mosques to issue their call to prayer five times a day?

Short version is this: Mosques are blaring their call to prayer from loudspeakers five times a day, all over the town. If you haven't listened to a call to prayer, think of a circular saw being run through a plank and hitting several knots along the way. Normally the recordings are absolute shit, and the harmonics of the call are enough to chase cats away for miles around.

What I want to know is this: Where are all those liberals who scream and shriek about "Freedome of Religion"? Where is the ACLU? Are they too busy chasing off plaques of the Ten Commandments to bother with this? And if those calls to prayer were instead ringing churchbells, would there still be this great silence coming from the hypocritical left?

Gah. Anyways, The Rottwieller has his opinion posted for all to see, as well as a few links to other people on that subject. And the Grouchy Old Cripple has an idea who's time has come. Let's rock.
