Children are everywhere you go, grocery stores,getting a haircut, and yes even church. Naysayers expect sex offenders to not go to church services and other common area places? It would be different if the sex offenders were holding a church service at a playground, or nursery school, etc. They're at a church gaining support of others and strengthening thier faith. Small minded, ignorant people want to take this from them and others thay want to help.Or, think of it this way... at least when they're there, you know where they are, if only on a sunday!!!

There is more to this story then you have addressed in your comment. They are 20 yards from this playground and they also are allowed to live at this Church. This Church as spit on the very community they should be supporting.
