(Lois Choate) – Dennis Hof (late owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel and others) educated me on legal brothels and the service they perform – which is to help eliminate sex trafficking, etc.
I was brought up in a Southern Baptist home. Which is not a bad thing, but I was definitely sheltered as well as well as taught bad girls did bad things and not to be a bad girl.
Over the years my views changed and I grew up to know that there are bad people who do bad things – and sex trafficking is one.
I met Dennis at the Nye County fair last year. He came over and introduced himself to me and the conversation began!
I came away with a whole new view of the brothels, and had a peace of mind that although it was not a career for me or those close to me, I could accept it in its reality.
After all it has been here since the beginning of time – and Jesus himself forgave the lady at the well.
I always remembered that scripture when events with people I cared about were involved in things that were hard for me to understand. Education is not just reading, writing and arithmetic. It is about understanding and accepting people who have different views and ways of life.
We supported Dennis. He was one of the kindest men I have met in my lifetime and I hope people will get educated on the truth about his kindness and true caring for the people of Nevada.
Lies have to be dealt with and we can do it together!
