Double-standard for loud sunrise bells

It would seem that hard-line Muslims believe that the way to win hearts and minds is to...break any law you like and then if anyone complains, scream that your right to practice your religion is being denied.

Case in point: A mosque in NYC has started upping the volume on its sunrise call to prayer--one of the five times a day this is played. Locals say this can be heard five or six blocks away, which would seem to make it pretty loud for those living within a couple of blocks.

NYC has an anti-noise ordinance, and churches aren't allowed to ring their chimes before 9 a.m. or so. But when the source of the noise is ISLAMIC, the city takes no action at all.

One wonders why there are different standards for different religions.
