Jamming Cell Phones in Church

September 27, 2004 by

Churches in Mexico are using high-tech jammers to keep cell phones from ringing in the midst of services. It’s illegal, but no one seems to care.

As interesting as that story is, all I can think of is cornball lines to promote these cell phone-free churches:

No signal from the tower? Try a higher power!
We jam for the Lamb.
Can you hear ME now?

    “We jam for the Lamb”
    In this era of downloadable ringtones, perhaps churches could require that parishioners who insist on leaving their phone on use hymn tunes for the “ringers.”
