Church Cross to double as Cellphone Tower

monocross A church—in Florida of course—is getting bad reception from some of its neighbors for wanting to put a 130-foot cellphone tower on its property.

The pastor, Rev. Willie Israel, says that the cross “is a symbol of who we are as a Christian community." In actuality, the money to be made by leasing out the space for a tower (rumored to be $18,000-$26,000 a year) is a symbol of the consumerism that is rampant in American churches.

Let me be the first to predict that some church will have the audacity to put three towers on their property to match Jesus’ crucifixion scene and then attempt to rent them out to ATT, Sprint, and Verizon.
