Church protests strip club, and vice versa

For several years, New Beginnings Ministries pastor Bill Dunfee and members of his flock have protested outside the Foxhole strip club in the small town of Warsaw, Ohio. They carry signs and bullhorns, and post images of customers' license plates online. Now, the Foxhole dancers have started protesting outside of the New Beginnings church, "wearing see-through shorts and toting Super Soakers," according to the Columbus Dispatch:

"These church people say horrible things about us," (Foxhole dancer Gina) Hughes said. "They say we're homewreckers and whores. The fact of the matter is, we're working to keep our own homes together, to give our kids what they need."

Dunfee said it's not that simple. He said he consistently offers the women help, a chance at redemption.

"I tell them, 'I will put a roof over your heads, and your bills will be paid, and your children's bellies will be full,'" he said. Yet they don't come inside.

The first few weeks, Dunfee piped the sermon outside. But that "agitated" them, he said, and made them dance in the streets.

He said their presence has united his church members and reinvigorated their mission to shut down the club.

"They have now seen the evil firsthand," Dunfee said. "This has just made us stronger."
