Strippers protest outside church

Protest2

I saw this on The Gospel Blog (here) and it just made me laugh – I’m sorry, I just couldn’t help it:

For the last four years, Pastor Bill Dunfee and his congregation have held protests outside of a strip club in Warsaw, OH. Now, Tommy George, the club’s owner, and a few of his dancers have decided to turn the tables and protest outside of New Beginnings Church.

It seems that when Pastor Dunfee and his congregation protest outside of the strip club, they bring bullhorns, signs and video cameras for posting customers’ license plate numbers online. As a counter measure, dancers from George’s strip club wear bikinis and grill hamburgers outside of New Beginnings Church.

I just love the irony and the sense of humour of the strip club owner, Tommy George – but I wonder if Pastor Bill sees it that way?

I can’t help but feel that it is a real opportunity for the church to reach out to the strip club employees and show some love, care and compassion.  I wonder if any of the church members have gone and had a burger with the protesters?
