I know this isn't nearly as important as the jet fuel line they are threatening to put through our neighborhoods (see Tommy's Blog); but what the hell is going on at the De La Saron church at 5127 N. Florida Ave.? Having most recently had a stop work order plastered on their front window for months -- for non-permited construction -- now they have put up a chain link fence, ala the thought process of their nearby neighbor S.H.I.P.
They are in the historic district -- and I'm not sure on set backs and so forth -- but I think this is irresponsible at best; but most likely just plain stupid.
I know it's hard to see in this picture, my apologies (camera phone at night time).
For those naysayers, please keep in mind that this is the same church that parks a big, white semi-truck behind it. Jesus first came into town on a slow mule, but next time he's coming in hammer-down driving a Mack Truck!
Tax-free parking for semis in the name of the Lord!
This city needs its arm twisted to allow parking for a restaurant. Then strong-arms restaurants to change the shape of their windows. But then allows these type of actions from our fly-by-night churches. Priorities, priorities ...
