JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Members of a Jacksonville church gathered to burn at least 100 reels of X-rated movies from the '70s- and '80s that were discovered recently when the church bought on old drive-in theater.
The 300-member congregation of Christ Church Anglican held a special service Sunday afternoon, which included a ceremonial burning and a "holy hose-down" with water from a Jacksonville Fire and Rescue truck blessed by the priest.
Christ Church purchased the 13-acre drive-in for $1.4 million after the 60-year-old theater closed in May. The church closed on the deal a few weeks ago and discovered the porn stash when they began cleaning up.
The Rev. Mark Eldredge says the church plans to show family movies to the public after some repairs are done.
