Waco Hooters Blessed by Priest

When a new Hooters Restaurant opened in Waco, Texas, Tuesday, it was blessed by a priest. A nearby Baptist church felt differently about waitresses in short shorts and low cut tops: Rev.Greg Brumit protested the restaurant with trademark buxom women in skimpy uniforms while it was under construction. Tuesday there were no more protesters, and the reverend said he'd leave the rest to the Lord.

Good morning. I'm Renee Montaine. When a new Hooters restaurant opened in Waco, Texas, yesterday, it was blessed by a priest. A nearby Baptist church felt differently about waitresses in short shorts and low-cut tops. Reverend Greg Brumit protested the restaurant with trademark buxom women in skimpy uniforms, while it was under construction. Yesterday, there were no more protesters. The reverend said he'd leave the rest to the Lord. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
