Exotic dancers protest topless at Ohio church

WARSAW, Ohio (AP) — Exotic dancers from a central Ohio strip club have protested topless at a church in a demonstration that included a few heated verbal exchanges between protesters and churchgoers.

The Coshocton Tribune (http://ohne.ws/1sN5BaL ) reports no major problems occurred Sunday outside the Warsaw church that the strip club's owner says has protested his business for years.

Club owner Thomas George says judges have repeatedly denied his requests for legal injunctions to keep church members from picketing near his property. The Rev. Bill Dunfee, the church's pastor, has said the latest action indicated churchgoers' protests are working.

The newspaper reports six bare-breasted women marched from a corner to the edge of the church's parking lot at one point Sunday.

Most congregation members left through a rear entrance shielded from protesters by a tarp.
