STEWARTVILLE, Minn.—An adult entertainment store’s sign offering a “clergy discount’’ has drawn the wrath of its churchgoing neighbors.
The double-sided sign stands outside Pure Pleasure so those who attend Midwest Baptist Church next door see the ads going into, and leaving, the church.
To people driving toward the church, the sign reads: “And God said go out into the world and have great sex. God’s gift to women. Amen and amen.’‘
People leaving the church see: “No need to mail order. Gay videos in stock. Clergy discount. Have good sex. Hallelujah!’‘
“This sign shows me that he’s not only thumbing his nose at the laws of the township, he’s thumbing his nose at the laws of God,’’ said the Rev. Joseph Grimaldi, who heads the church and is a vocal opponent of the business. “I just hope I’m not too close when the lightning strikes.’’—StarTribune.com
Considering the mess the Catholic church is currently going through you’d think more churches would be happy the store is offering a discount to clergy so they don’t have to prey on little kids, but nooooo.
