Dancers from Ohio Strip Club Protest at Church
WARSAW, Ohio (AP) The owner of an Ohio strip club and some of his dancers have been protesting at a church that has done the same to them for four years.
Women in bikinis sat in camp chairs Sunday outside the New Beginnings Ministries church in Warsaw, about 60 miles northeast of Columbus.
Tommy George owns the Foxhole strip club in nearby Newcastle. He says he and his employees decided to start coming to the church because they were fed up.
George says the church's pastor, Bill Dunfee, and his congregation have bothered the club's weekend patrons. He says they come armed with bullhorns, signs and video cameras for posting customers' license plate numbers online.
Dunfee calls George a "parasite" and says seeing the protesters outside the church has strengthened the resolve of his flock.
