Several churches in Logan and adjoining counties are fighting back against a business trying to hire pole dancers to increase revenues.
The Tenn-Tucky State Line Tavern is located near the Tennessee border in the Logan County town of Adairville and owner Sheila Haley is seeking a permit to offer pole dancing at her bar.
Haley says pole dancing would increase her business, but Calvary General Baptist Church pastor Brent Johnson says it’s immoral and would only increase crime such as drugs and violence.
Haley disagrees with the vast majority of religious leaders who oppose the permit and says the dancers would be wearing bikinis.
Leaders from nearby churches in Tennessee are also asking for the permit to be denied.
