The Sisters of St. Charles have filed a lawsuit against Club Allure Chicago over the club’s alleged violation of the state’s zoning laws. Illinois requires a 1,000-foot buffer between adult entertainment facilities and places of worship.

The strip club — which opened in September — is being accused of playing extremely loud music that disturbs the nuns even when they’re praying.

Additionally, the nuns claim that they have seen plenty of unruly behavior in the neighborhood including “public violence, drunkenness and litter, including . empty whiskey and beer bottles, discarded contraceptive packages and products and even used condoms,” according to the lawsuit.

The strip club claims that it has taken preventive measures to avoid any disturbances from its employees or customers. They claim that the nuns don’t like them because the club’s practices don’t conform to the nuns’ religious beliefs.

The club added that its dancers are mothers, daughters and some are even Catholics.
