London, Aug 28 (ANI): A number of strippers in Ohio are protesting outside a church whose members want to put their strip club out of business.
The bikini-clad dancers are picketing a congregation that has photographed customers' number plates and asked if their wives know where they are.
The Fox Hole club's owner has told the pastor he will call off his protest if the church ceases its demonstrations.
But the pastor has refused, saying, "as a Christian community, we cannot share territory with the devil".
"Light and darkness cannot exist together, so the Fox Hole has got to go," the BBC quoted Pastor Bill Dunfee as saying.
The strippers have been sitting in deckchairs outside New Beginnings Ministries church in Warsaw, Ohio, during Sunday services.
Some hold signs bearing Christian messages such as "Jesus loves the children of the world" and citing Bible verses.
The strip club is about nine miles (14.5km) from the church.
"Everybody has sinned, and that doesn't mean I'm not going to get into heaven," Fox Hole stripper Laura Meske, 42, said.
"I believe in Jesus. I don't believe what they preach. They preach hate," she added. (ANI)
