Now how are you gonna fine somebody for praying too loud? …Well according to sources, there was a First Lady of a church in Lisbon North Dakota that was punished and fined $150 for praying too loud on sidewalks.
After two court appearances about the case, Martha Nagbe, wife of Pastor Juwle Nagbe of The United Methodist Church, although she paid the fine, she insists that her rights are being violated. She said “I can’t stop, I am trusting God”
He has been asked police to stop praying on sidewalks but she persists and says, “In the United States it’s one nation under God,” as she defended her rights.
Lisbon Police chief Jeanette Persons said the problem is not Nagbe’s religion but her loud voice. “I mean, we all need prayers and, great, she’s out there praying for all of us, but it’s just the volume of her voice,” she said
