You know how sometimes old churches get converted (in the non-religious sense...HAR!) into other types of buildings? I once went to a club in London that was in a modified, giant old cathedral. It was slightly cool, slightly creepy, and moderately sacrilegious (people were making out in former confessionals. Not me, I was just watching them. Um, kidding.). Anyways, some former churches in the Boston area have been converted into condos. I have always deemed such properties unlucky and would never reside in one, no matter how high the ceilings and decorative the windows. Something about it just seems wrong. In Boston, the Catholic Church had to sell property after the whole priest child abuse scandal, so there's the whole link to molestation, and even though I realize this is completely irrational, I can't help thinking that God would be mad that churches got sold off and converted into condos and would send down his wrath upon the residents.
This morning, the area around the Broadway T stop was packed with fire trucks. Why? Because one of those former church condos was on fire! See what I'm talking about?
