Stephen Baldwin Wins Religious Support in Porn Battle

Hollywood actor Stephen Baldwin has won the support of a powerful religious ally in his battle against pornography, after discovering a store selling sex films is opening just a mile from his home in New York State.

Born again Christian Baldwin vowed to stand outside the store in Nyack every day and take photographs of the license plates of anyone who visits it earlier this year.

He also threatened to publish a list of all the store's workers and customers in a newspaper advert each month, in a bid to force the business to shut down.

And earlier this month, the Catholic Citizenship Organization joined the Usual Suspects actor in his campaign, filing a petition against the impact the store has had on the community living in Nyack.

Baldwin, 39, tells the New York Daily News, "I'm not directly involved in the petition, but it's exactly what I've been arguing.

"This store would bring the type of individual we do not want. Sex offenders will come to town, deviants will come to town.

"I think it is ridiculous that this store is 200 feet from an elementary school."

Catholic Citizenship attorney David MacCartney adds, "The planning board has a responsibility under state law to take a hard look at the environmental impact of the project on the community."
