Prostitution within 1000 feet of church law...what?

Recently I read a news story about a Republican state senator, more specifically Ralph Shortey, who was charged with child prostitution after police found him in a room with a 17-year-old boy he had found through Craigslist.

It's would be all clear and simple if he hadn't also been charged with "engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of church." Now what's that about? If prostitution and having sex with a minor is illegal, it's illegal everywhere. What does that church have to do with anything? We all know what's happening inside of it every once in a while anyway, right?

But it seems prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church is more illegal than prostitution behind, lets say, a bar. As it turns out, while prostitution in general is a misdemeanour in Oklahoma, based on the law there, "prostitution or solicitation of prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church or school is a felony punishable by a maximum of 5 years in prison." As business owners say, it's all about the location!

Most of the soliciting is done by church goers anyway, so why such a discrimination?

It's all about coffee and laptops and what you can do with them. Or more like what you do when you are doing it to them. Doing like using your laptop and drinking your coffee. When your laptop is on the table and coffee is sitting next to it, some people start to work, some people go to Facebook, some people pretend to work most of the time. I guess that's me.

dudette with a laptop?

If you're a dude, or dudette for the matter, have a laptop and like coffee, well...good for you! Me too!
