Is It A Church For Swingers Or A Swinging Church? Just Ask The Locals

By Nikki Weingartner     Sep 5, 2008 in World
A Pennsylvania church may get the axe come October when North Huntingdon Township officials decide if it is actually a swinger's club. The church for "Adults Only" and not open to the public is creating a bit of a stir for area residents.
John and Kim Ondrik reportedly applied for a special ordinance to run a church out of their home in North Huntingdon Township, PA. The Spiritual Palace, however, just might be supporting more than those worshipping the Lord.
In a local area news report (see news video in link), some local residents believe that the church is actually a swinger's club:
Neighbors say there are often 50 or 60 cars outside on a Saturday night and it's not uncommon to find used condoms or tissue paper in the yard.
In another news article, the church leader, Reverend Ondrick of the Church of Spiritual Humanities explains his side of the allegations, calling them untrue.
[He] said a picture of him and his wife that appeared on the same Web site had been stolen from the church.
"I got on the Internet, found the facts, the truth who owns that Web site and none of those documents have my name on it," he said. "The truth will prevail and religion will win."
What apparently happened was the individual, a man named John Walkmeyer Jr, actually owns the property where the building is located and Ondrik has a land contract with Walkmeyer and is currently using the building for his "church".
Walkmeyer, according to WPXI news, also owns a swingers website.
Still, officials in North Huntingdon Township were alerted to a supposed swingers club being operated at the same address as the church based upon the website, which was run by Walkmeyer.
The problems with the swinger's club had been going on for quite some time, as Walkmeyer was previously cited for running one on his property according to the news reports.
So is this really just a fluke or an attempt to "bulldoze" a piece of property where an old swinger's club used to operate or is it really a business operating behind the guise of an adults only private membership religious meeting place? It will interesting to see just what type of religious practice is taking place in this church when the township decides its fate come this October.
