Regardless of local laws, it seems to me in the past that "vice" establishments had enough respect for houses of worship to stay a distance away from them. That is rapidly disappearing around here. Twenty-three years ago, our church moved to an exit off the interstate that was relatively undeveloped. Last year, the voters made the district in which our church resides wet. Shortly after that, right across the interstate, a restaurant named "Show Mes", is being built and about ready to open. It is a cheap version of Hooters. At the entrance to the driveway to our church, a mini market is going in and will sell liquor. There are many vacant lots at the exit ready for development, and who knows what will be built. Has anyone else experienced these types of places going next to or near your church, or is there still some measure of respect where you live? It would be nice to get a larger perspective than just here.
