Orlando Swinger Party Upsets Soccer Parents

ORLANDO, Fla. [abridged]
Some teenage soccer players and their parents saw more sights than they wanted when they stayed at a hotel where about 200 swingers were having a New Year's party.
Paul Camporini brought his wife, seventh-grade daughter and eighth- grade son from Safety Harbor and said he had to "delicately explain to my Catholic school children that swingers change partners during the evening."
The families said the sexually adventurous partygoers sometimes flashed breasts and bare buttocks in front of the children as they sashayed through the hotel atrium. The parents described the dress at the Crowne Plaza Hotel-Airport in Orlando as "raunchy, despicable and worse than prostitutes."
"The kids could see through the glass atrium into the ballroom where naked people were dancing. There were exposed breasts, thongs and see- through dresses on women who were not wearing any underwear."
Young said he complained to hotel management and to John Hollis, an off-duty Orlando police officer hired by the hotel for a New Year's Eve security detail. He said neither did anything to help.
For a commentary on this kind of behaviour, read I Corinthians 10. The whole chapter is relevant, but the core is found in verse 5-8:
But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
God's judgment may not fall on the same day we commit defiant sin. I've been tempted to post a sign outside a church "Sin Now - Pay Later". But make no mistake about it. Punishment will come. (When's the last time you heard a sermon that even hinted that divine punishment is not just a possibility, but a certainty?) Meanwhile, Canada's Charter Judges use the powers they have not to curb evil, as they ought, but to enable and extend its reach into our society.
