    Poorly informed jury. Don't they know...

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Temple prostitution was practiced in the way way way back,and was considered religion. But times change,and morals change,BUT I believe the government has no business making the oldest profession illegal. Just my feeling on the matter,but who am I to say to see it as legal,like in Nevada(but only in certain counties)

    I would think taxpayer money is better spent than preventing dudes from getting prostate massages. They'll go after a false church if someone's getting a handie but won't lift a finger against a church that tells it's members offerings will cure their cancer.

    Temple "maidens" were highly respected while they served in the temple but if they continued their "education" outside of temple service and it led to marital problems then they were stoned. It was all a matter of moral standards. Telling believers that God cures all is a matter of faith and therefore a church matter while charging for sex is not considered a matter of faith and therefore illegal. Yet sexual or sensual contact is an integral part of many faiths "so long as no money changes hands". It seems curious that money changes an act of devotion to prostitution...

    People bitch about this, but not about the "churches" that make millions fleecing people that are suffering.

    I think that some people were just upset that their churches don't have Temple Maidens".
