Two More Wins for Communities and Families Against Sexually-Oriented Businesses...

Over twenty years ago, I served as Executive Director of the Attorney General's Commission on Pornography with ADF co-founder, Dr. James Dobson.

It was a time of great trial, as we examined some of the vilest material imaginable and the negative secondary effects of sexually-oriented businesses on communities, women, and children; such as violent and sexual crimes, degradation of women, prostitution, and so much more.

That's why I am pleased to report on two more wins against the expansion of sexually-oriented businesses.

In Pittstown Township, Pennsylvania, ADF provided funding for allied attorney Randy Wenger in a successful effort to help residents stop zoning approval of a sexually-oriented business featuring nude dancing.

The residents were concerned about the detrimental effect that the club would have on their community, especially since the club was planning to allow its "patrons" to bring their own alcohol to consume.

After hearing the residents' concerns, the township denied the club zoning approval, but the club developers appealed that decision to the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas. The court issued an order that rejected the appeal, saying that the township was within the law to reject the club's application.

A copy of the order can be read at copy of order.

In Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, the parish council approved an ordinance that enforces comprehensive regulations on sexually-oriented businesses.

The model ordinance ADF supplied outlines what owners and employees of sexually-oriented businesses may or may not do; and enacts permit and licensing requirements; as well as criminal background checks; limits on operating hours; and establishes health code, architectural, and signage requirements.

A copy of the model ordinance is available at Model Ordinance.

ADF senior legal counsel Mike Johnson provided assistance to the Tangipahoa Parish council. He says: "We want other local citizens' groups to feel empowered to take the same actions...This ordinance is something that can be duplicated in other cities and counties nationwide."

We praise God for these two victories to protect communities and families from the cultural pollution of sexually-oriented businesses. For more information on the steps you and your community can take to stop the encroachment of such businesses in local neighborhoods, go to Steps you can take.

Tried to watch the special last evening online, but the broadcast was about the Christian girl, Rachel Scott, who was killed at the Columbine massacre. What a strong faith that girl had! She was indeed filled with the Holy Spirit of God and her last words at the last moments of her life attest to it.

Perhaps the special is on this evening? I will attempt to view it at 9:00 p.m. PT tonight online.

Did anyone else happen to see it at 12:30 a.m. on the east coast?

If your ADF group wants an even more efective way to limit strip joints, just have every man have an honest talk with the working girls about what they really think of the patrons.
