Don't mess with nuns
Nuns sue strip club next door to their suburban Chicago convent
STONE PARK, Ill. • A group of nuns is suing to shut down a strip club next to their convent in a western Chicago suburb that the sisters say keeps them awake at night.
The Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo Scalabrinians say in the suit that Club Allure has ruined their peace with blinking neon lights and loud thumping music. The nuns say they have witnessed drunken fights and found condoms littering the area.
The suit, filed against the club and the village of Stone Park, states that the club violates a state law against operating adult entertainment within 1,000 feet of a school or place of worship. The club is also near houses, and three neighbors have joined the suit.
"I think most people would find that offensive, to put a strip club next to a home for sisters," said Peter Breen, attorney for the Thomas More Society, a nonprofit law firm that filed the suit on behalf of the nuns.
