This Day in Binghamton History: No laughing in church! (1875)


APRIL 27 – Today in 1875 Binghamton Presbytery gets fed up with people laughing in church.

So fed up, in fact, that they actually start banning all guest speakers who may bring forth laughter or applause.

They say this is due to a recent (at the time) event where an address had people all riled up, stomping their feet and crying “More! More!”
