Women religious, neighbors protest strip club
Catholic News Service


A community of women Religious in suburban Chicago hosted about 500 neighbors in a prayer vigil in hopes of stopping the planned opening of a new strip club on a street adjacent to the nuns’ property.


The club, to be named “Get It,” would feature alcohol and partially nude dancers on a site that was formerly a factory. It was to open on Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week.


The community of the Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo, also known as Scalabrinians, say the club will degrade the community, depress property values and create dangerous situations for children who sometimes play in the alley along the property.


The Thomas More Society, a Chicago-based legal group, plans to challenge the village’s approval of the club because it believes such approval violates a state law that imposes a mile-wide buffer zone between adult entertainment facilities and houses of worship.
