TWAIN HARTE (CBS13) – A man took an unusual retaliatory step for his neighbor’s constant gospel music, countering song with sin.

“I decided to watch the porn on the back deck,” said the Twain Harte man, who didn’t want to give his name.

The man also didn’t want to show his face but was willing to tell CBS13 his story Tuesday, saying he moved his big-screen TV out on his deck Sunday evening and turned up the volume on a porno flick – all aimed at getting back at his neighbors.

“Just to kind of give them a taste of offensive play there, just a little payback,” he said.

But why a little payback? It turns out they play a lot of gospel music.That’s right, gospel music, and he can’t stand it.

“One day it went on for 12 hours and my dog was howling and it was bad,” he said.

But another neighbor said he’s not bothered at all by the music.

“No, it doesn’t,” Dave Kamps said. “I love it. I love it.”

The small little cul-de-sac is nestled away in the Twain Harte hills and both homes are quite close together, so it wouldn’t be hard to hear either the gospel music or the groans from the movie.

The accused gospel lovers weren’t home for us to get their side of the story, but Tuolumne County deputies say the neighbors called the department to complain and even showed the responding deputy a video of the porno playing in the neighbor’s backyard.

Did the man really think playing porn was the best way to up the ante against gospel music?

“Yeah, like I said, not the best choice, but you know what are you going to do?” he said.

“I think that was a little ridiculous,” Twain Harte resident Tara Varela said. “He shouldn’t have just played porn like that. He could have played, like I said, death metal. Anything besides that.”

We probably wouldn’t be telling the story if he had just played death metal music loudly. But blasting an X-rated movie just to make a point? Well, that definitely caught our attention.

“After all the commotion, I probably wouldn’t have done it,” he said.

The man says he won’t be living at the home much longer. So far, he’s not facing any charges for his backyard movie selection.
