[OneNewsNow] 24 Oct 2008--Christ Church Anglican in Jacksonville, Florida, is growing and has purchased the land where an old drive-in theater once operated. The church plans to build a new, permanent facility on the land. With keys in hand, Pastor Mark Eldridge opened the door of the old drive-in -- and stumbled across an unanticipated surprise.
"Just stacks and stacks of old pornographic movies," says Eldridge. "And we didn't actually have to look at the films to know -- the titles on the outside of the cases gave it away."
Obviously, the films had to be destroyed, so Eldridge decided to have a sizzling old time of it. Church members arrived at a pre-arranged time and torched all of it, with local firemen taking a role by using their truck and spraying down both the ashes and the building.
