Have you even tried?

Read the article. After four years of research the only possible use they found that could preserve the exterior of the building is conversion to luxury condos. But that is not an acceptable use. "New Vision finds the prospect of luxury condos abhorrent to its religious vision."

Selling the building "as is" means that they have no further control over it. And a subsequent buyer could convert the building to luxury condos. The only way to prevent that is to demolish the building. So that is what they are doing.

If that Jesus guy was subversive when it came to money and property, his mother was even worse. Here is what she said about the relationship between God and people who are rich and powerful.

He has put down the mighty from their seats
and has exalted the humble and meek.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.

I'm not seeing how luxury condos fit into that vision.
