Is this the accepted Christian method for shutting down porn shops?

So this morning I was sitting around at my local pontiac dealership, waiting for a ride to work, and I overheard these 2 old guys talking to each other. One guy was telling the other how he and his church group were able to help shut down this big porn emporium in Minneapolis a while back. It was the normal stuff... he was talking about how he'd take pictures of people entering the building, write down their license plate number and then send them a postcard... stuff like that.

Then he says this: They kept seeing all these nice cars (mercedes, bmws, jaguars,etc...) coming into the neighborhood to visit this porn place. So he and a buddy would follow these guys from their car to the porn shop telling them that there have been a lot of hooker arrests in the area, and it's a very high crime area, etc. And if the guy would still go into the porn shop, they would slash all 4 of his tires! The other guy got a kick of out this, and they both laughed and laughed. Apparently the cops knew about this and just told the old fart not to get caught.

I wanted to say something, but I was pretty pissed at that point, and didn't want to get into a screaming match with some selfrightous a-hole in the middle of the pontiac dealership. Can you believe this crap? Damn, sometimes people piss me off so much

Ironically, many of the most ardent fundamentalist Christians are also the biggest monkey-spankers around.

I say you should have followed this guy to his car and slashed all four of his tires. (Preferably while masturbating.)

Wow, that's very christian of them to slash tires.

Sounds like somebody needed to buy an oversized novelty toy, follow one of these guys home and bolt it to his mailbox or truck bumper one night.

Our local "all night bookstore" had a sign on the inside to make sure prople didn't proposition tha vice squad undercover guy outside hehe... of course I live in the bible belt, so it's since been shut down. Now we only have a Gift spot here, which is a little less obtrusive, so people ignore it.

Wait. Are you saying that joeblow should wait until the guy is masturbating in his car before joeblow slashes the tires, or that he, joeblow, should masturbate while slashing the tires? Or both?

Yeah, shutting down the porn shop is going to make that non-Christian "urge" disappear . . .

Whatever happened to minding your own business?

I kinda miss the days where some self-appointed moral do-gooder sending a postcard to my home because he caught me frequenting a porn shop would be a nail-biter.

Nowadays, I think I'd just go back more often to see how many postcards I could collect.

Of course, nowadays, I also avoid the "love emporiums" designed primarily for straight people. Too much pink on the walls, cheap lingerie on the racks and badly dubbed money-shot videos in garish orange Disney clam-shell cases.

*gak*

I think the answer is simple. Approach their car. Commence masturbating. If they are truly religious, they will not allow your seeds to hit the ground - Therefore, it was a sin for a male to spill his seed or semen on the ground, because he was killing little human beings (Gen 38:8-10).

So if they catch your seed score one for you (you got off). If they don't, slash their tires - score one for you.

Go to these people's homes at night and stick 100 3 foot plastic penises in their yards.

Too bad I ain't got no Bible Belt here, I could start a business.

On one hand I'd like to say that this is par for the course for fundamentalists, on the other (more likely) hand this is par for the course for old guys. They were talking shit and bitching, pretty much all that old guys do.

"The ends justify the means." Isn't that somewhere in Romans?

If I had been there, I would be too pissed off to speak or do anything.

If I were a better person than I am, I would have introduced myself, learned their names, waited for their licence numbers, and passed on the information to the local porn shops. And told them that I'd done it, so they knew the next time they slashed tires, they would be found.

But I'm not that clever or agressive in real life.

You know this how? Personal observations perhaps?

What is this? 1975?
I'm surprised there still are such things as porn shops in existence.
Can't you just view all the porn you want for free at home?
Or even if you want to buy DVD's or VHS tapes (I guess some of these are still around), who drives over to a shop to look at porn?

Guys who don't want to get caught and have their tires slashed by their wives at home?

There is a Hustler Hollywood store here. The male/male XXX DVDs are about $25.00 more than the straight ones......and the straight DVDs are overpriced as well. $80.00 for "Behind the Green Door"?

At least I got to see the "pulsating ussy-pay" display attached to the wall (high enough that no one could "use" it)

***********
Back on topic: I would not give a crap if someone copied down my license plate and sent me a postcard. Fuck them. It's none of their business if I want to go into a porno store.

I don't care if there are porn shops around as long as they're not near schools, playgrounds or neighborhoods. They have just as much right to be there as the next place so I say leave them be.

Slashing tires is unexceptable. My church protested a porn store (it was near a school) but we didn't resort to such tactics.

Nothing in your original post indicates how you know they were Christians. How did you know?

Well, minneapolis still has a couple, Sex World being the biggest. I'm not really sure why anyone buys stuff there, since everything is way cheaper on the internet. Of course if I ever do go back there again, I will make sure I park VERY far away.
