NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Congregations from nearly a dozen churches have united to oppose plans for a swinger’s club to relocate near a Christian school in Nashville.
Media report they came together Sunday afternoon at Goodpasture Christian School for a communitywide prayer meeting in advance of a Metro Council meeting Tuesday where the issue is set to be discussed.
The Social Club is seeking to move from its current location to property that is adjacent to Goodpasture Christian School. The controversy created by the proposal prompted officials to consider banning private clubs from properties that are zoned for office use.
Pastor Sandy McClain of Mt. Calvary Madison Church says the church will bus people to the council meeting to express support for the ban.
Meanwhile, the club’s attorney, Larry Roberts, said there would be a legal challenge if the ban is approved.
