Left out in the cold.


To be perfectly honest, I'm surprised this took so long to get started:

Girls! Girls! Girls! for Jesus Christ

Ex-strippers converting sex dancers


CATHERINE ELSWORTH, London Daily Telegraph
Published: Monday, December 05, 2005

A Christian mission that was founded by a former stripper is helping lap dancers, porn addicts and actors to find God.

Members of JC's Girls are touring strip clubs in California, where they pay for private dances and use their time alone with the performers to try to convert them.

So far, the 6-month-old enterprise has encouraged several strippers to start going to church.

Porn stars and men addicted to pornography are also contacting the group via its website and crediting the women with helping them to discover Christianity and change their lives.

JC's Girls, described as "a biblically based Christian ministry," was formed by Heather Veitch, a former stripper and nude dancer at clubs in Las Vegas and several Californian cities.


The difference between the hamfisted seduction playing itself out in (most) strip clubs and the browbeating salvation delivered in (most) churches is one of degree, not of type. In fact, the esthetic employed on their website is identical to what you'd find on a late-night adult chat line. Check it out if you're feeling flagellant; after all, "Heather, Lori, and Tanya are waiting to hear from you…"

Green Party wants seat at debate

Published: Monday, December 05, 2005

Green Party leader Jim Harris is calling for control of the federal leader's debate to be shifted to a non-partisan group like Elections Canada. Harris is angry that his party has been excluded from participating in the four televised debates agreed to last week by five major TV networks and four main parties. Harris says his party will be launching an online petition and is urging Canadians to flood debate organizers with emails and phone calls ahead of first debate scheduled for Dec. 15 in Vancouver.

    As the good book says:

    "I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some [...]"

    Yet surprising,

    the club owners have found it completely unneccessary to cruise church bake sales to recruit new patrons & performers.
