"a free-speech lawsuit brought by nude dance clubs."
I didn't think there was a lot of talking going on in a nude dance club.

So much energy wasted on this subject. It is quite obvious who some of the “posties” are. Whether right or wrong the topic has switch almost to ‘is there a God or not’. For me the answer is simple, yes. For those others, it seems that they enjoy their ability to elaborate on the horrible instances that have happened in the “church”. For the typical person, I would think it would be desirable to have the attention to the strip clubs reduced. If you’re on the hunt for one of those places I am sure you will find it one way or another. Yes, everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion and the easiest solution is to put it to a vote. You betcha it would be a huge waste of time and money for something as menial as this. However it would shut a lot of people up and they can go on with their lives, who knows, it may be for the better.
I am amazed of the lack of faith that is being display on this subject. I know there are ‘non-believers’ but such effort to go to these lengths to strike at those who do believe is beyond me. Yes, we as a civilization are growing and becoming more advanced which may be the reason that all this crap is standing out so much. I am just having a hard time comprehending the stupidity in this discussion. Should all the strip clubs be shut down … not the topic. Should they be restricted? My vote is yes.

Hey genius, God doesn't make anybody do anything, we all have a conscience of what's right and wrong, we do what we do because WE want to or not! Got it? And what are you talking about killing everyone? What Bible are you reading out of? Get your facts straight before you start blabbing about nothing.
Yes he does.

Exodus 7
1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet. 2 You are to say everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go out of his country. 3 [BOLD]But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and though I multiply my miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt, 4 he will not listen to you.[/BOLD] Then I will lay my hand on Egypt and with mighty acts of judgment I will bring out my divisions, my people the Israelites.

Reminds me of an old joke.

Jews do not recognize Yeshua as the messiah.
Protestants do not recognize the pope as the head of the church.
And Baptists don't recognize each other at the nightclubs.

STOP LEGISLATING MORALITY. I'd rather spend my money at a dance bar and get what I pay for - a smile and a beer - than spend it at one of your churches to build a bronze sculpture of Homer Lindsay.

i totally agree with you. I knew a couple who were very involved with the baptist church--she taught sunday school to 6 year olds and he was always doing something at the church. They were always preaching to everyone about how they were leading the wrong lifestyle, griping to you about you smoking or having a drink, etc and guess what?? They got caught running a swingers club out in Orange Park and were also busted by the IRS for charging to be in this club and not paying taxes. Give me the clubs anyday at least you know what u r getting instead of a bunch of phony hypocrites.

See all you church folk think to not worship in your house is not loving god. I know the real secret, but Bob Marley said it best. We know and we understand A mighty god is in every living man. The "house god" hides many dark closets as proven over and over and over again by you pastors and prisoners who like children, steeling and bigotry. The % of sinners are the same inside as out, so I will take my chances out here. God is in my heart not in some opulent building filled with the hypocrites.

Is one opinion better than the other? When all is said and done a dancer has chosen a profession like any other professional has. There is a need that is being filled. Men like women. Men pay good money to see women. McDonald's customers are hungry. People pay for a burger that will one day kill them. Free will. Choice

Wasn't it God that gave everyone free will/choice? I.E., "Here are my standards, live by them or don't. But it's your choice." So why are all the supposed Christians telling God to f*#% himself? That they can do it better? As if the Church has any right to take away that choice. Church/Religion is only there to lead the teaching and discussion of God's law. Not to stop abortions, not to stop immorality, not to save the world. Jesus already came and did that. By leading by example. As man and the Church should also do but refuse to. Why does man choose to play God? Let the mothers provide for their families. Let the women exploit man's weakness to better their own lives. And leave God out of your personal vendettas against anything you believe.

Look, all these nudie bars are actually supporting our local Nursing schools.
All you guys know that all the dancers are working their way through nursing school.
These schools should step-up and be a voice for their students.

I do not dispise the church just the liars and fake people who go to them . The deacons whom also go to the strip clubs after church. When I want to pray I get on my knees and pray not go to a church to pay my money.

Ok #1 I am a dancer and its really not that big of a deal, because of this I own six vehicles, own two houses, no payments and have never been accused of tax evasion, child molestation,or charged with any crime. I have a very happy marriage, And currently going through the process of opening up my own nude club. I agree with many of the writers being a parent my self of a beautiful 9 year old son that I had with my husband, I do agree that signs and lighting of an adult clubs should be concealed in some form, or manner, for the family passing by some people are not comfortable explaining how the world works to there children, and I understand that, I don't agree that all the clubs should be in one designated area. For that would only give the club a bad wrap, if a car were to be stolen or a robbery were to happen. Crime is crime! there was a bomb treat at a Walmart two weeks ago should Walmart be moved to a designated area? Back to the subject at hand, We don't force any one to come into an establishment with nude, or topless dancers. But its a shame when you cant sleep in on a Saturday with out having someone banging on your door wanting you to attend your local church service and give 10% of your earnings to GOD A.K.A. the pastors pocket or what ever you want to call it, for all the so called Christians one of the first things I learned in Sunday school was (its not very Christian like to judge thy neighbor)!! WHEN CAN WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

not sure at about it being the bapitist church causing the problems here in Jax, but do not have any issue with the clubs being there, its like the tv police telling me what I can and can not watch.......I am grown up and can use the remote, and I can choose to go or not go to these clubs. Let them be is my opinion to be honest, maybe a small compromise with some of the signs but really if that is all that some one has to worry about their child being exposed to in life, then their livies are pretty easy overall.
