Hmmm... church spires... I wonder... if my antenna is a religious symbol,
can I claim exemption from a host of restrictions based on the recent
"religious freedom" acts. There's a fairly notorious case of this being
used to build things that would otherwise be prohibited by zoning rules in
Hancock Park (read: expensive Los Angeles neighborhood).
Grist for the armchair lawyers, certainly...
Have to have deep pockets to fight it out, of course.
