Topless Protests Taken to Southern Ohio Church's Doorstep Yet Again (Following Ongoing and Clothed Protests Against Dance Club)

The guerrilla war between Foxhole North and New Beginnings Ministries in Warsaw, Ohio, picked up with "mostly peaceful" protest tactics over the weekend, according to the Coshocton Tribune

Here's the gist: Foxhole owner Tommy George says that the church's ongoing protests against his exotic dance joints are hypocritical and totally due for a bit of turnabout. On Sunday, much like in years past, six topless women posted up near the entryway to the church property. Dozens more — clad in shirts, etc. — sat nearby or marched in solidarity. 

Words were exchanged between parishioners and protesters after the morning service, basically just continuing the battle of perspectives that's embroiled this city for some time now. George says he's working toward a lawsuit against the city, with respect to selective law enforcement. No arrests were made Sunday (toplessness is copacetic in Ohio, per the revised code). 

"We want to let (church members) know how it feels to be under scrutiny," George said. "They come up every weekend. They're very abusive and certainly not Christian-like, not what I read in my Bible. I have to point out the hypocrisy I see and not stand by and let this go on week in and week out."

Pastor Bill Dunfee told the southern Ohio newspaper that he's going to "directly confront the situation next Sunday starting with 9:30 a.m. Sunday school," which sounds perhaps maybe slightly misguided? Dunfee wouldn't elaborate as to what he meant by that. "Next Sunday, those who hate me will hate me even more," he cryptically told the paper.
