Nuns Sue Strip Club in Chicago

by at . Comments

Nuns are not typically in the habit of filing lawsuits.

But they aren't typically forced to pray while surrounded by the remnants of a strip club either.

A group of nuns in Chicago have filed a lawsuit in Cook County against Club Allure, an establishment that opened in their neighborhood last fall.

The Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo say Illinois law mandates a 1,000-foot buffer zone between adult entertainment venues and places of worship or education.

But Club Allure is located directly across the back fence of the convent, forcing its occupants to deal with noise, bright neon lights, fist fights and loads of litter that include empty whiskey bottles and used condoms on a nearly daily basis.

"The Sisters have every right to pray and work peacefully without disruption from a strip club in their backyard," Peter Breen, the lawyer for the nuns, said in a statement.

The village of Stone Park, where the strip club is located, is also named in the lawsuit.

No one from the strip club has been available for comment yet, most likely because they are busy in the champagne room.
