News item: Thirty-Second Street Baptist Church in the Lakeview area of Birmingham, Alabama is being converted into upscale condominiums starting in the $200's.
Christy Holz, a realtor/developer on the project, says, “If this becomes your home, you can fall asleep in church and not feel guilty.” In fact, each loft will become a “Room with a Pew” as each owner will receive a church pew salvaged before demolition.
Christy honey, if you read this blog regularly, you'd know I don't offend easily. But then you open your ad for this church/condo conversion with, "Want to witness a second coming?" Well, no, but there's a real estate agent I sure would like to see nailed to a tree.
And just in case you think this whole thing is quirky, a Google search of "church converted into condos" yields, oh, 860,000 hits. And those church burning college kids thought they were being funny.
