The Southern Baptist Church is the equivalent to Heaven's Gate. Both are radicals and used as extreme examples. But they don't control political parties and write laws for entire countries.

They exert more influence in the Deep South than you think. Florida is a great example of the SB mentality bleeding over into politics by way of "Hells yeah, spot on!"

Well what about the Mosque that was so loud it was making the neighborhood dogs start howling? Don't the neighbors have the right to complain about that? I think I would start howling if I heard this...

Hey, my local city would not allow this to open either if within 1000 feet of a school or church. Neither strip clubs, porn shops, smoke shops, "massage spas" , bars with a capacity for over 100 people, and bath houses.

I think it is an appropriate call to make. These are not family type businesses and should not be near these other places. I fact many cities and towns have these ordinances.

Police Commissioner Bans Gay Sauna, ‘Too Close to Mosque… Caused Widespread Offence’



A Conservative Party Police and Crime Commissioner has blocked a licence for a gay sauna – because the location is too close to a mosque, which she said might cause “policing issues”. The sauna’s owners withdrew the application after receiving a barrage of homophobic abuse from the local Muslim community.


Omg what's going to happen! My brain can't handle this!!!



There is no way!



Just kidding guys.

On a serious note though.. is anyone really surprised? This is a throwback of puritanical Christians from the 1950's. You know something we've finally been moving past in the western world.


Since when has the police commissioner become a law maker?

I thought the role of the police is to enforce the law not make it?

Gay saunas are a thing? Jesus. Well no surprise a religious establishment hates gays. If the sauna was located near a school or church I'm sure they would still receive death threats and what not. I guess the owner can fight this in court of move his business to a more gay friendly area.


Sorry 'near a school', what are you implying? Gay people are not paedophiles. They would have absolutely no interest in those pesky kids. They just like the same sex. Just thought I'll pick on this.

You should have grown up in Germany, where the 'Freikoerperkultur' [Nudist] movement is just a normal thing, it's everywhere. There are saunas galore and people walk around naked in front of their kids. There are sex shops in normal areas [Lots of Beate Uhse shops-I walked past one on my way to school] and nothing bad happens.

It is only as seedy as you make it to be.

That said, having seen more naked grown ups in my youth than I can count, I personally never liked it for myself. Not because I am a prude but I can't stand being naked.
By the logic of all those who think being open about nudity causes the downfall of society, I should be a gay, naked, nympho...

Yet I am not. Please explain.

It's like how you can't call a black person or Mexican person racist without getting all kinds of flack.

Your headline is a lie.

The gay sauna has been there for years and will continue to be there.


The application was to sell sex toys and show erotic films.

yes you are right but what can you say



Greenhouse Health Club in Luton has been operating for 18 years, but an application lodged by its owners for an entertainment license, which would allow them to sell sex toys and screen adult films, sparked fierce opposition from the local community – championed by Bedfordshire PPC Kathryn Holloway, a former TV presenter.

I don't know if you ignored your source or what, but the gay sauna is NOT banned and has been in operation for 18 years... They weren't "banned", they applied for an entertainment license and then withdrew the application after Muslims threatened them. NO ONE BANNED ANYTHING. This lady wrote a letter. I mean... it's right there in YOUR source. Did you not read it, or were you so eager to start this stupid thread that you couldn't be bothered with facts?

...
Her letter was at odds with the views of her own police force, who, in a separate submission to the council raised no concerns about the application.


But what should we expect from Breitbart and their loyal readers? Lies and misinformation.

So the objection was not to the gay sauna but to a potential porn shop.

Good catch guys. I knew with the source being Breitbart ... but I admit I was lazy and didn't read thoroughly enough.

How was the fact it was a gay sauna become known in the first place? They must have crammed that tidbit down the throats of everyone like those gay parades. No wonder it was denied lol...

I think this is hilarious.

It doesn't matter if it was "only a gay sauna" where real porn happens, or a porn shop, both would be disallowed from operating within 1000 feet of a school or church in many municipalities across the nation, including my own.

They should adopt these ordinances across the board in the municipality in question and this incident would never have happened.

It's over 1/2 a mile from the mosque, not within 1000 feet.
