BERLIN - A seven-member family faces eviction from an east Berlin apartment tower after neighbors complained about loud prayer sessions that keep the whole building awake at night, a German newspaper said on Thursday.

“I really don’t want to disturb the neighbors but the high volume is needed in the battle against the devil,” Pierre D., the 42-year-old father of the Christian family, told Bild newspaper. He is fighting an eviction order in court.

Neighbors told Bild the screams and singing that are part of the family prayers in the second story sometimes begin at 2:30 a.m. and can be heard all the way up to the fifth floor.

“We have to work in the morning and need our sleep,” said taxi driver Horst Berghahn, who lives on the third floor. He said he asked the family to lower the volume several times since they moved into the building 10 months ago but to no avail.

These people are so narcissistic, thinking the devil is only after them and not everyone else.
