(WJBK) -

A new sign is taped to the window at Agape Massage Therapy and Chiropractic in Clinton Township.

It reads, "Due to political pressure, we have been forced to close temporarily."

Dozens of people emailed FOX 2's Rob Wolcheck after his story aired about parents fearing for their daughters' well being after the girls met chiropractor Dr. Craig Stasio. The parents say their daughters cut ties with their families and are worshiping with Stasio, who claims to have a special relationship with God.

But, apparently he doesn't have a special relationship with the city where he runs his business.
