The 25 Story Crucifix was a Ruse

Looking at avemaria.com and through the pictures and pretty depictions, Torgo can't seem to find the Crucifix anywhere in any town plan. Not even the town center, which is

linked here.

Alas, maybe the Crucifix will be a later addition, but it was certainly made part of the Michigan plan, and Thom wasn't going to live without it. Maybe they are afraid that sun beams will be magnified by the glass chapel and burn a hole through the Crucifix, much like Torgo did to ants with a magnifying glass as a child.

Oh wait, what's to stop that from happening to passersby? Oh my.


Turns out the necessity for the 250-foot tall monument was to ensure that Ann Arbor township would say "No". Bad Zoning Board! Now look what you did! Thom has to take all his toys to Florida.

everyone quickly jumps to conclusions about WHY the planning board rejected the plans... I've heard many rumors that cast the decision in a variety of lights.

Regardless - florida?! There were many other local places to develop a campus in michigan...

The retirement community is so much more vibrant in Florida.

They've been doing it best there for so long now.
