The people mentioned would be fine if these prayer calls are miles from them. But when the prayer calls are near them (or some other Muslim tradition-sacrifice of animals, often done publicly), and disturbing them personally, being loud, many of these tolerant, mostly educated people transformed the thread to a Foxnews comment section. They consider the local population basically primitive and barbaric.I think most people here would be totally fine with the five daily prayer calls. The frustration comes when mosque loudspeakers are used for other purposes (eg: sermons, announcements, neighborhood kids playing around, etc)
Otherwise, most of them consider themselves very tolerant, open-minded. Just pointing to the hypocrisy of the human nature.
