MADISON, Tenn. (AP) — A group of Tennessee developers blocked from building a sex club next door to a Christian school has found a loophole allowing them to re-label the club as a church.

WSMV-TV (http://bit.ly/1b2sUJf) reports developers fought for months to open a swinger's club in a vacant building next to Goodpasture Christian School in Madison, about 8 miles north of downtown Nashville.
