What would Jesus do?

What would Jesus do? What these self-labeled Christians are doing? What a sweet, sweet witness they make to the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. John Calvin would be ever so proud of these, his spiritual progeny.

Protestors: Sex offenders must move out

Protestors want sex offenders to move out of a cluster of apartments that sit very close to their church.

TAMPA - Instead of relaxing, some Tampa residents were marching on Independence Day.

Members of the John Calvin Presbyterian Church held signs and chanted outside the home of a man who owns an apartment complex next to the chapel. The apartments cater to convicted sex offenders.

"We want them to move on," said Bea Dreier, as she held a picket Wednesday morning. "Let's find another place for them."

The congregation is especially concerned because the church plans to open a day care facility late this year or early next year.


Landlord Chris Stover says he was doing business on the location prior to the church's application for a day care facility. He says the church is being irresponsible opening the day care center so close to his business.

Are you surprised? My fiance is on the registry in New Jersey. He did a terrible thing over 25 years ago. I was forced out of the town that I had lived in for 10 years just because he moved in with me. Coincidentally, the Mayberry RFD town just happened to pass one of those ordinances, just as my lease was not being renewed. There is no justice. The only thing to do to fight these ordinances is to hire an attorney to fight them. What sex offender or their family has these funds? These towns know this and are just taking full advantage.
