adhere and heed


On the banning of the construction of minarets in Switzerland. 

Frankly, I don’t really have a say, being uninitiated in Muslim religious matters. 

But I definitely can say that our tax dollars should not go to waste on matters moral
or religious even if they do apply to local religious views.
An anecdote would be the millions of dollars went into the issue of changing street and commercial signs in Québec province to French-only.
What the point, I mean, when practically anyone can read understand STOP.  And what’s eliminating the appostrophe-S going to change? 
You won’t see me avoiding putting an accent on the ‘e’ in café , or on an ‘o’ in hôtel, especially where the word originates from French
(more or less).
Even so, a minaret is unobtrusive as long as it doesn’t have the loudspeaker – Anyway, all four of the minarets in CH, 
I’m told, don’t have one. 
I’m opposed to loud bells ringing (ESPECIALLY on SUNDAYS) more than the sound of a human voice. 
Having said that, a loudspeaker in an elevator and on the train, which one hears EVERYDAY in Switzerland, is much more obtrusive,
and damaging to the eardrum than the call to prayer from a distance. 
Besides, we all need to heed the call for human prayer in these idle times of computerization, even if just to get away from our monitors…

Ever have an idea or gut feeling, which you feel may have been mediated, for which there is no proof yet you feel nevertheless is valid and important enough to share? I put these down on blog to rid myself of them - it is a question of freedom of speech, and freedom of thought, and freedom from religious persecution.
