strip-club protesters

Summary: A nine year battle of lawsuits against each other has turned into aggressive protests by the strippers at the church.

Church-goers are being harassed by strippers from a nearby strip-club in Warsaw, Ohio. The New Beginnings Ministries members have been forced to deal with half-naked strippers from Foxhole strip-club as they come and go from church each Sunday. The protesters are standing outside the doors and following members to their cars with the female stripper even taking off their tops.

The Ministry has filed a lawsuit against the strip-club owner and strippers, stating that they are threatening members, blocking the church entrances and exits, violating the First Amendment right to religious freedom, and violating the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

The defendant, strip-club owner Thomas George, and the plaintiff, Pastor William Dunfee, have been battling each other for nine-years. The battle started when members of the church would protest on the weekends outside the strip-club.

George sued the church in 2009 but lost the case. He then gathered his employees are started protesting at the church. For the past year, the protesters have become more aggressive in their antics, targeting children with “sexual slurs, nudity and obscene language.”

The latest lawsuit claims that George and two protesters followed a man to his car where one of the strippers then took her top off and asked, “Don’t you wanna see my (breasts)?” Then the female strippers started wearing G-strings.

The lawsuit is seeking a permanent injunction to stop the protesters from blocking access to the church, intimidating members, and intruding on the property. The lawsuit is also seeking a restraining order for Dunfee against George.
