Let's not forget that Atlanta's suburbs are becoming increasingly sophisticated. They offer tremendous opportunities for new housing. In many cases they are closer to employment centers, as well as schools, shopping churches and other amenities.

In many cases they are already on traditional train lines so just hook them up with commuter rail or BRT.

Preachers and church staff do. That plus regular attendees who like a certain church. The southeast is still by far the most conservative sector of this country.

Churches also house schools, preschools, gyms, sports programs, counseling, social events. Yes, I think people do try to live near them.

They would really only get the additional money from the congregation. So in short attendees would end up paying more.

If he followed the style of some of his preachers he'd be living in a gigantic mansion and flying around on a fleet of private jets.

Jesus wouldn't judge others for exercising their free will to choose transportation modes.
