It's no longer illegal to dance near a church in Henryetta, Oklahoma

The Henryetta city council has voted to abolish a 40-year-old law that forbid citizens from dancing within 500 feet of a church.

The forgotten ordinance from 1977 came up when a resident sought to host a Valentine's Day dance insider marketplace. The location of the proposed dance is a mere 250 feet from the Henryetta United Church of Christ.
