That Would be an Ecumenical Matter

A friend relays this anecdote unearthed by an academical acquaintence of his:
A 13th century debate among Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists among the Mongols: "Finally, as the effects of the alcohol became stronger, the Christians gave up trying to persuade anyone with logical arguments, and resorted to singing. The Muslims, who did not sing, responded by loudly reciting the Koran in an effort to drown out the Christians, and the Buddhists retreated into silent mediation."
Speaking of theological noise pollution, is anyone else worried about the commanding lead the Hare Krishnas have over us in the budding field of Religious Street Annoyance?
