Born-again actor teams with Catholic group, battles against neighborhood porn shop

.- Born-again bad boy actor Stephen Baldwin has taken up a battle against a porn store opening in Nyack, the Rockland County town where he lives, and Catholic Citizenship has joined him in the fight, reported the New York Daily News.

The lobby group filed a petition, claiming Nyack's planning board failed to consider the impact the porn store could have on the community, when they approved its construction in January.

Baldwin, 39, said he is not directly involved with the petition but supports it. The father of two says the shop would bring sex offenders and deviants into town. He called it “ridiculous” that the shop will be located 200 feet from an elementary school.

A lawsuit, claiming that the city’s planning board has not followed all of the proper procedures, has been filed with the Supreme Court in Rockland County.

The town’s attorney, Walter Sevastian, said the town believes it followed all the proper procedures.

Baldwin has threatened to photograph store patrons and publicize the pictures.
