Being that I live less than two blocks from a topless bar; personally, I would like to see strip clubs allowed in industrial/commercial only areas------no where near residential enclaves.

Residential is not allowed in 'C' only zoned areas------at least here in Arizona.

In my particular case: the nudie bar came in well after the apartments were built.

A theocracy? No thanks. That's too Middle Eastern / Islamic for my all-American tastes.

Not according to the Christian's Bible (assuming that's the one you're referring to).

Not me or the Christians I know want what you're saying they want.

We believe that God gave mankind free will and that each will be judged by Him alone.

A woman is much more sensual and appealing dressed than stripping, the allure just isn't there. Why men are attracted to that is beyond me. I think my wife is sensual ans sexyier than anyone.

God doesn't want what you are saying, he wants you to use good judgement and decide if you want to sin are repent and accept him in your life.

God does say do not covet thy neighbors wife, iterpreted broadly I would thing that a man is coveting someone's girlfriend or wife when they go to the clubs
