File this under one of the most asinine things you’ve ever heard,
Apparently a Boston church is demanding a new tower being constructed in the city to either be lowered, or be ready to pony up $19 Million Dollars.
Old South Church is asking Boston Properties to pay $19 million for the shadows its Back Bay Station project will cast over the church. pic.twitter.com/OLZyhEfgdw

In the final line of request, the church states “If Boston Towers does not lower the owner to minimize or eliminate additional shadows cast on our historic resource, Old South and GBIO therefore request $19 Million Dollars In mitigation. “
This doesn’t seem very church like. Who the heck on God’s green Earth do they think they are? I can maybeeee understand if they were putting a wind turbine or something next to them which causes turbine flicker, but this is just stupid. Just because you’re a church, it doesn’t mean you’re good people. You can still be kind of a dink and be a church, today I found out that that’s possible.
