A church in Florida, was earning money by hosting wild nude parties on its premises.
Officials said that the church in Panama City Beach, is trying to bypass the law and save on state property taxes by using its premisses as a church while operating as a nightclub.
The church hosted a wide range of parties, which they named “The Tabernacle” that go on until 5:00 a.m., for any person willing to pay the $20 “donation” required at the door.
The church stated that all donations are used to run the house of God.
The Life Center, a Spiritual Community in Panama City Beach, hosted nude paint parties and slumber parties especially geared towards college students.
The church is open on Sunday for services and holds parties throughout the week.
Authorities said that they used the church so that they can be exempt from paying taxes. However, they have now lost their tax exempt status.
