    This is not an invasion of privacy because they are not in private.

    It's no different then the treatment celebrities are exposed to, only the motivation for doing so is different.

    What kind of nonsense if this. Who says that going to into an adult store is ungodly. Lets suppose that we have our god fearing married company, all about to engage in missionary sex for the purpose of procreation to make some more little disciples. However, the wife's lady parts are a bit dry so she goes to an adult store to buy some lube. This god-fearing women is on a divine mission and these agents interfere with her good works? Where I come from, people who voyeuristically take pictures of woman in state of undress are in no position to be lecturing others about moral values.

    But the way in which celebrities are treated by the media is despicable..
    These Christians (so-called) need to grow up and accept the imperfections of man...

    I made my porn store visits in Tennessee.
    The only one the wife and ever went in was on the way home from the smokey mountains. I think it was just outside of Sevierville.

    I thought about that as well, but the burden would be on the person bringing the charges and the church could say that it wasn't targeted at any individual, they'd get some kind of technicality out of it and it would be likely to stand.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Actually that would be a great idea. "So are you "really" saved?", "How long have you been saved?", "are you saved because you were born a religious bigot or because you were a major screw up early in life?", "born again huh?, well that is the worst kind of christian." But don't just stop there, you see them drinking any kind of adult beverage, get a pic, ditto if they get behind the wheel of a car, get pics of their purchases at the grocery store, etc.

    maybe kicking the **** out of them would help

    actually they'd probably really enjoy being "persecuted"
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I'm a fan of them getting a beat down personally, but I think you're right, they would turn it around on their victim by saying the attack was unwarranted, even though they started it.
