It´s Play Time at Cancun Playboy Casino (playboycancun)

The Mexican Catholic Church is offended, pissed and ready for a good fight against American lite-porn house Playboy.  The Church, which views gambling as a place that “attracts criminal elements”, does not want one placed in front of its front door.

The Catholic church of Cancun in the state of Quintana Roo is asking the Playboy Casino to move since it is located less than 200 meters from a place of worship, a violation of the law, says Catholic new agency Fides.

The Playboy Casino originally opened in 2010 was closed due to damage from a nearby fire and then reopened in November 2012.  The Casino with its trademark scantily clad bunnies is located near Cancun’s “Cristo Rescucitado” (Church of the Risen Christ). The Mexican Catholic Church lost its first round in court and the case has now moved up to the Federal District Court in Quintana Roo with the Church vowing to fight on.
