Sex club seeks Nashville blessing by vowing to be a church

0

460xA Nashville swingers club has undergone a conversion — it says it’s now a church — in order to win city approval so it can open next to a Christian school.

The story began last fall, when a fixture in downtown Nashville called The Social Club sold its building and purchased a new one in a run-down office park several miles to the east.

The new building is geographically isolated at the end of a dead-end street, but it is near the back of Goodpasture Christian School, a large private school serving pre-school through high school children.

It might have been years before school officials and parents learned what was going on inside The Social Club — its website says it is “a private club for the enjoyment of both men and women … to engage in any sexual activity” — if someone had not sent anonymous letters to the school president and the local councilwoman. Both say the person who tipped them off claimed to be a concerned club member, although they don’t know that for sure.

Parents and religious leaders were called on to pack the Metro Nashville Council chambers to support a zoning change to prevent the club from opening. That’s when the club, which had spent $750,000 on the building and begun renovations, suddenly transformed into a church.

The United Fellowship Center’s plans are nearly identical to those of The Social Club but with some different labels. The dance floor has become the sanctuary. Two rooms labeled “dungeon” are now “choir” and “handbells.” Forty-nine small, private rooms remain, but most of them have become prayer rooms.

Larry Roberts is the attorney for the club-turned-church. He previously vowed to take the city to court. Now, he says, it’s the city that will have to sue.

“The ball is in Metro’s court … We’ve now gotten a permit to meet as a church, and a church is something that cannot be defined under the U.S. Constitution,” he said.

Roberts said church members will “meet and have fellowship” in the new building, but no sex will take place there. “If people have something else in mind, they will go somewhere else.”

Several of those who opposed The Social Club say they are skeptical of the change.

“I find it hard to believe that they’ve invested that kind of money and they’re just going to change the activity,” Goodpasture President Ricky Perry said. “I really hope that it’s true.”

Metro Zoning Administrator Bill Herbert said the department takes applicants at their word, so inspectors are treating the building as a church. As long as the United Fellowship Center is in compliance with codes, it will receive permission to operate.

“If it is not operating as a church, that’s an enforcement issue,” he said. “We can tell them to cease and desist, and if they refuse we can enforce it through the courts.”

If it turns out to continue operating as a swingers club, it could also face trouble with the state after lawmakers passed a bill last month disallowing private sex clubs within 1,000 feet of schools, parks, day cares and houses of worship.

Metro Councilwoman Karen Bennett is a Goodpasture graduate who sponsored the legislation to change the zoning for private clubs. She said she will be watching to make sure the United Fellowship Center truly does operate as a church.

“I’ve heard many, many people say they’re planning to attend when it opens,” she said.

In a bid to achieve pouty lips à la Kylie Jenner, teens all over the world are engaging in a bizarre DIY lip job challenge called the #kyliejennerchallenge. It involves blowing up their lips to comically large proportions by sucking on a glass or a jar.

The method is reportedly rather painful – participants need to place their lips in the opening of any narrow vessel and suck in all the air, causing a vacuum. The lips will eventually swell due to increased blood flow, creating an effect that teens hope will resemble the 17-year-old Kardashian clan member’s highly coveted pout.

he craze continues, despite Jenner’s insistence that her lips are 100 percent natural. As the challenge grows in popularity, scores of teenagers – both boys and girls – are posting pictures and videos of their shocking results. While some of them seem to have gotten away with mild swelling, others have severe bruising and bleeding around the mouth. And seems that the results of the challenge last for hours, and sometimes even days, which is a lot longer than some of them expect.

“Made my chin look like a hickey a week ago and I’ll say I’ve never felt so dumb.” another admitted.

Woman steals cheese, beer, sprays perfume, leaves cellphone at scene of burglary

55380c1207e68_imageA woman who stole cheese and beer from a Far East Side home in a burglary Tuesday afternoon also doused herself in perfume and left her cellphone inside the house she broke into, Madison police said Wednesday.

Officers were called to Mallory Circle at 4 p.m. Tuesday after the homeowner, a 39-year-old man, returned from work to find 37-year-old Kelly L. Mayer in his house, according to police.

The man had to push his way inside after Mayer tried to keep his front door closed, police said. She was wearing a backpack with the man’s laptop inside; the man took the bag back, then pushed Mayer outside, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said.

“She responded by eating a chunk of cheese,” DeSpain said. “Cheese that had been in the victim’s refrigerator.”

Mayer then left the scene, but witnesses pointed responding officers toward a nearby bike path and woods where they soon found her, police said.

“They not only spotted her hiding, they could smell her,” DeSpain said.

During the burglary, police said, Mayer went inside the bedroom of the homeowner’s daughter and sprayed herself with perfume. She sprayed enough of it that officers could match the woman’s scent with the smell that still hung in the house.

In one of Mayer’s pockets, police found a can of Guinness that had been taken from the man’s house, DeSpain said, along with stolen electronics and money.

“While officers were taking inventory, she asked about her cellphone,” DeSpain said. “They called her number, and back at the victim’s home a phone began to ring inside a living room cabinet.”

Mayer was held on a tentative charge of burglary, police said.

Though the Guinness can was unopened, DeSpain said, “It did appear she had been drinking.”

Army to review decision to have male cadets wear high heels

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. It gets a fair amount of attention in the U.S. military, in which thousands of assaults are reported annually and the Pentagon has acknowledged cultural problems that need to be addressed.

One place where the military is addressing the issue is college campuses, where Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) organizations train students before they earn a commission and become new officers. That has led to this:

Yes, those are photos of Army ROTC cadets wearing red high heels while in uniform. It’s part of a campaign known as Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, which bills itself as a “playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes, effects and remediations to men’s sexualized violence against women.” It isn’t focused on the military, although a number of units have participated in the past. .

The photos above were taken at Temple University in Philadelphia. But a similar event at Arizona State University has generated controversy this week. An anonymous post on Reddit  alleged that cadets there were required to participate, and would get a negative mark for not supporting the “sharp” mission, an Army acronym for the Army’s Sexual Harrassment/Assault Response & Prevention Program.

The post has generated attention from a variety of conservative publications, including RedState (Headline: “Army forces ROTC cadets to wear high heels”) NewsMax  (“ROTC Cadets required to Wear High Heels with Combat Uniform”) and The Washington Times  (“Army ROTC program allegedly pressured cadets to walk in high heels for ASU event”).

A spokesman for U.S. Army Cadet Command, Lt. Col. Paul Haverstick, said ROTC units across the country were directed to participate in Sexual Assault Awareness Month events on their campuses “to help stamp out sexual assault on the campuses where they have a presence.” But Maj. Gen. Peggy C. Combs, the cadets’ commanding general, did not direct how the units would do so, and had other events as options, Haverstick said

Kenne Worthen Charged With Having Sexual Relationship With 12-Year-Old Student

0

Police have arrested 27-year-old Kenne Worthen after the elementary school teacher got busted having a sexual relationship with one of his 12-year-old students.

Kenne-WorthenPolice were called by staff at Longview Elementary School after students informed them that Worthen was having an inappropriate relationship with one of their female classmates.

When questioned, the girl initially denied having any type of relationship with Worthen, but later admitted to it and that she’d had sex with the teacher in his classroom after school.

A search of Worthen’s iPod revealed the girl and Worthen would have conversations of a sexual nature via the Google Hangouts app. He even tells the girl that he’s worried she will feel guilty and tell his wife or the police.

Worthen was arrested on Friday and is facing five felony charges, including molestation and sexual conduct with a minor. According to court documents, Worthen confessed to the relationship to police.

During his first court appearance, the judge ordered Worthen held in jail without bond.

“Even with having no record or anything?” asked Worthen. “That’s what the Arizona Constitution says,” replied the judge.

So, we have a male teacher having sex with a 12-year-old girl and he wants to be let off …. amazing.

The victim’s father is understandably pissed about the entire situation.

“You have this anger, the anger towards the perpetrator, and a feeling that you physically want to harm that person,” said the father. “Then there’s an anger at least for me towards the school, because you send your child there thinking they’re going to be safe.”

Worthen is a Mormon, so he also has an excommunication to look forward to. Joseph Smith may have tricked 14-year-old girls into fucking him under the guise of salvation, but mainstream Mormons frown on their members participating in such activities.

Drivers urged to return cash that fell from Brinks truck

8200018261_11460dd3d1_zMotorists who thought they struck it rich when money flew out of an armored car and onto a highway have been returning what they took, a police official said Sunday.

An undisclosed amount of money escaped onto Interstate 20 in Weatherford on Friday when the passenger-side door of a Brinks truck accidentally opened, slowing traffic to a crawl.

Motorist Joel Aldridge said he saw other drivers stop in the middle of the road and get out to collect the cash, leaving their doors open.

“At first, I thought there had been a wreck or something, and then I noticed this one guy with two handfuls of cash, like he was carrying a basketball or something,” Aldridge said.

Weatherford police spokesman Cmdr. Chris Crawford said Friday that detectives would look into pursuing criminal charges against people who don’t return the money. Those who had cash were asked to call the Weatherford police department to arrange to return it.

“The money belongs to Brinks, and we are hoping that people’s integrity outweighs their greed,” Crawford said. “As of right now, most of the money has not been returned. Officers have talked to a couple of people, and they have returned the money.

Tammy Payne, a Weatherford police dispatcher, said Sunday that people had been returning the cash.
