porn shops and what not

I think that some of the zoning laws talked about in this weeks lectures are a bit much.  I can totally understand the secondary effects of having an adult business (theatre, bookstore, etc…) near a school could be really bad.  Children should not be exposed to drunk people or to images that they could be exposed to if there was an adult business near the school.  But, having an adult business near a church is going a bit too far.  There are mostly adults at church, and if there are children they are with adults in a car.  The kids do not have to be exposed to anything because the parents can drive a different route home.  I can understand not wanting the adult business to be right next door, but within 500 feet or so?  Come on. 

I do feel that the three part test is good because it helps to keep people's rights to do business.  Without this three part test some communities would bar these businesses altogether.
