    Adult site

    Never posted a poll so not sure if I can do this but I live near a very small town (Uniontown) in Indiana that 3 or 4 years ago an adult business moved in near the interstate. They have been protesting ever since. They take pictures of everyone that stops at this place and post them on a web site (War-line) Is this a violation of peoples rights or do you think this is perfectly alright?

    Just tell me how you want the choices to read, and I will add the poll for you. And I think I know which place you are talking about. I was driving through there to Wisconsin, and stopped at an exit for gas(off I-65) and there was an adult store, that had a big wooden fence around it and a "tower" of sorts, looking into the property. I asked the gas station guy what that was about, and he said it was some church that was reporting all the truckers that stopped in there.

    That's the place. I guess what I'm wanting to get at is should this be illegal. I am assuming that it is not since they have been protesting since day 1. Personally I don't have a problem with it and have never been in there but I would be pissed if I did go in and someone was taking my picture. Protest is fine but taking my picture and posting somewhere I dont think should be legal without my consent.

    I'll put up a couple of options for you. Next time you want to start a poll, before you submit a new thread, towards the bottom, there are check boxes that are empty. One of them will be an option for adding a poll. Check that, submit your thread, and it will take you to the poll options where you fill out the choices and can select how many choices you want, make voting public, etc....

    No. It's an invasion of privacy and a form of intimidation.

    How lame. How about the church does something churchlike and spend their time and money helping the poor or helping orphans or something?

    And what kind of business is it, just an adult store or is there strippers in there too?

    Its not against the law. There was a group back in my old town that did this to the Adult Shop there as well. Apparently there's no laws in taking pictures of people entering a private business, just can't go IN the business and take the picture.

    That said, its a sticky situation (no pun intended). IN a way, this is how private investigators work. How exactly are you to assure your not going to get your picture taken without your consent? I guess, in theory, perhaps a law that your picture can't be posted without your permission but even that would be difficult to really enforce in some ways.

    I think its a bad, rather sad thing to do, but don't know if it should be "illegal"

    I strongly suggest everyone checks out the website:

    WAR-LINE: War Against Rape-Let It Never End

    It's a rollicking good time. It's the "War Against Rape- Let It Never End".

    Except all they do is talk about pornography.

    I've read a great deal of studies confirming that legalized porn (and prostitution) decrease rape.

    So...they're retarded Christians.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
