Residents angered by club

RESIDENTS in the north Slovak town of Žilina are protesting against a strip club that has been built right next to a primary school.

Hundreds people have already signed a petition against the club because they say it "threatens the morality of young children".

"As good Christian people we cannot agree with the running of erotic salons which cross into the borders of our parish. Right next to it is a primary school, and the morality of the young children is under threat," said father Ján Hudec, parish priest.

Some Žilina residents are also furious that statues of naked women have been erected in the town. They are calling for one, which has been put next to a statue of the Virgin Mary on a main square in the city, to be torn down.

"For us Christians it is a mockery to put a naked woman opposite the Virgin Mary," said Hudec.
