I’m not particularly religious, but today I learned that the phrase “love thy neighbor” applies only to the neighbors that you like. Feel free to hate that cat woman next door as long as you like the recent grad with a new puppy down the street. Of course, I’d be kinda pissed if a strip club moved in next door to me too- oh. I’m getting ahead of myself. Here, read this.
“The Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo Scalabrinians say in the suit that Club Allure has ruined their peace with blinking neon lights and loud thumping music. The nuns say they have witnessed drunken fights and found condoms littering the area. The suit, filed against the club and the village of Stone Park, states that the club violates a state law against operating adult entertainment within 1,000 feet of a school or place of worship. The club is also near houses, and three neighbors have joined the suit. ‘I think most people would find that offensive, to put a strip club next to a home for sisters,’ said Peter Breen, attorney for the Thomas More Society…”
I don’t see how building a strip club next to a convent is offensive, if anything it means the nuns only have to walk next door to do charity work instead of day tripping into the inner city. Let’s see, which would you prefer. Possibly getting murdered in the ghetto, or maybe seeing a titty or two in a strip club. Yeah, titties always win. If anything they should be thanking the strippers for cutting their commute time by more than half. If my job was next door and I didn’t have to deal with ratchet people on the metro, I’d be sending over a fruit basket, not a lawsuit.
