SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco may be getting ready to shed its image as a city where anything goes, including clothing.

City lawmakers are scheduled to vote Tuesday on an ordinance that would prohibit nudity in most public places.

The ban represents an escalation of a two-year fight between a devoted group of nudists in the city's famously gay Castro District and the supervisor who represents the area.

Supervisor Scott Weiner's proposal would make it illegal for persons over the age of 5 to expose their genitals. Exemptions would be made for participants at permitted street fairs and parades.

Weiner says he resisted a ban, but felt compelled to act after constituents complained about the naked men. The ban has sparked nude protests and a lawsuit.

That's like putting a bandaid on a severe heart attack. That once beautiful city has sunk to the biggest pit of sin, depravity and godlessness in the country if not the world and is beyond saving. It is known far and wide and the "Gay Bay". Hoping God doesn't have a plan for a sequel: Sodom and Gomorrah II or we will likely lose San Fransisco and burning man. I know there are good people still in SF, but I can't figure out how they can live in that environment of filth and vulgarity.
