Strip club owner, pastor to meet over feud

WARSAW, Ohio (AP) - August 16, 2010

Foxhole strip club owner Tommy George says churchgoers with bullhorns have bothered his patrons. New Beginnings Ministries pastor Bill Dunfee calls the strip club a nuisance. They say they'll negotiate for the first time Wednesday.

The decision came after two women from ministries that evangelize to adult-entertainment industry workers spoke during Sunday's sermon at the church in Warsaw, 60 miles northeast of Columbus.

San Diego resident Sheri Brown and Grand Rapids, Mich., resident Anny Donewald say the congregation should just love the strippers and "let the Holy Spirit draw them out."

The Columbus Dispatch newspaper says women who attended the church service apologized to strippers who had traveled from nearby Newcastle to protest outside.
