(THE AMERICAN MIRROR) — Parishioners of Woodland Drive-In Church in Michigan can no longer honk their horns for Jesus after complaints prompted police to law down the law.
nohonkWoodland regular Marianne Wilkins told WZZM 13 that those who attend the Sunday service listen to the sermon broadcast over the FM radio and parishioners will honk in support – about 15 seconds out of the hour-long service.
“That’s how people applaud from their car,” she said. “I never ever considered it could be bothering someone.”
An unidentified church leader told WZZM 13 that when the church moved to its current location in the 1980s, an agreement of some sort was made that attendees wouldn’t honk during the service. It’s unclear if it was a verbal or written agreement.

Apparently, the congregation ignored that part of the deal for 40 years and no one really complained, until recently.
