    This is the feel good story of the summer.

    Good for them. I guess the church doesn't like it so much when it happens to them.

    If I was the owner of that club, I'd just pay the pastor a visit and ask him to peacefully debate the problems he sees with my business—inside the club, after hours. I'd videotape him getting a free lapdance or two, and send him home with a belly full of free steaks and a raging boner.
    Then, I'd repeat the process with all the other church officials, and one glorious sunday morning, I'd wait in front of church with a big screen TV mounted on a truck and show the innocent church-goers all the lapdances I taped.
    Of course, I'd also hand out free burgers.

    God complex anyone:

    The pastor says, "I tell them, 'I will put a roof over your heads, and your bills will be paid, and your children's bellies will be full,'" he explains."

    The pastor will put a roof over their heads, pay their bills, and care for their children? Talk about bastardizing scripture.

    God will provide for his children should they merely believe in him. (My belief, not a quote). This jerkoff is actually saying he's the one who will take care of the sinners when they repent and believe.

    Can anyone say heresy?

    You really think these pastors actually believe in God?

    Of course not. It is just a convenient way to make money and get some power.

    Really brilliant stuff! Love how there seems to be a trend of mocking protests in the States recently against these religious nuts.

    I'm sorry, but living as a pastor is not a way to rake in the money. Only the pretty faces that run the mega-churches make anything to write home about. To devote one's life for such a lie with so little in return is questionable. While you may call them misguided, calling them all money-loving power-hungry individuals is short-sighted, to say the least.

    As a side note, I wonder how many of the men snuck out to grab a burger.

    "Where did you go, the sermon is still going on... wait, what's that on your face? Is that mustard?!"

    "Whaafff, oh fatsss noffing. I forgow suhmfin in dah car."

    Why is it heresy for the church to provide for women who want to leave the stripping profession but can't find any other way to make ends meet?

    Good for the strippers for standing up to that BS. If you live by the sword, you'll die by it.

    Who says they want to leave the stripping profession?

    More importantly, why does the church feel the need to protest outside the strip club in the first place?

    Exactly! Do you have any idea how much they make? Many retire by 35 and never work again!

    I doubt they're making enough to retire on over at the Foxhole.

    Never know. The ones I've known in town did very well. One lady I knew invested wisely, now has a penthouse in NYC and never has to work again. I was so jealous. If I were a pretty lady, that's exactly what I would have done.

    I cannot stop laughing!! Why did they wait 4 years to fight back?

    They could put some Leviticus quotes above the grill, god loves the smell of those burnt offerings but prefers a bronzed out 8x8 grill.

    Obviously, the ones that don't want to leave wouldn't take the pastor up on his offer.

    I am assuming that the church is protesting at the strip club because they feel that the establishment is involved in immoral activity and is a stain on their community. I am not a big fan of church protests, but it sure beats the church lobbying to have strip clubs made illegal.

    No, instead, they just post videos of license plate #s of the strip clubs' patrons online and violate their privacy. Much better :rolleyes:

    Touché

    The actions of this pastor are malicious. He actually wants to try and harm the lives of people going to the strip club in a way that he thinks is effective.
