Church: 1, Lust: 0

Via John Dvorak, the Herald News Daily (‘Voice of the Dakotas’) reports an unorthodox but potentially effective strategy for ridding a neighbourhood of a strip club:

The owner of a strip club says he’s considering a six-figure offer from a church to buy and shut down the location. Bill Martin, owner of the Just Teazin club in Painesville Township, 25 miles northeast of Cleveland, declined Thursday to identify the church or when he might decide whether to accept the unsolicited offer.

Apparently it’s worked in the past. Another church bought another club “in 1996 for $36,000 and became a recreation center and eventually was sold for use as a homeless shelter”.

    In Vancouver I’ve heard that a group of Mormons have bought both the Marble Arch – a reputed peeler bar mentioned in Motley Crue’s ode to strip clubs around the world, Girls, Girls, Girls – and the Fraser Arms – former home of a well-known, blue-collar, lunchtime buff ‘n muff. Now the Marble Arch is a nightclub and decent karaoke bar and the Fraser Arms does the $4.99 steak sandwich special without the exotic dancing.

    Incidentally, you can add the word exotic to any job title to make it more interesting.
