Christians say that Jesus came to bring peace – but some of his followers won’t stop disturbing it.
In Lisbon, North Dakota,
A pastor and his family’s faith is being tested by law enforcement who say his wife is praying too loud on city sidewalks. Martha Nagbe has already had two court dates and has paid a $150 in fines for “unnecessary noise,” KVLV-TV reports. Nagbe feels her rights are being denied, and she won’t stop praying in public.
Irate citizens of Lisbon charge that Nagbe likes to go out at all hours to walk down the street and and pray at the top of her lungs, often remaining in one spot for prolonged periods.
