from the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
How much house does a religious leader need?
What do you think? A nice country home somewhere in the woods of England or Scotland? Perhaps Grosse Pointe, Michigan, former home of many GM execs? No, it's one of the neighboring homes of the Cleveland Episcopal diocesan bishop Mark Hollingsworth Jr. I couldn't find a picture of his Shaker Heights home, which he and his family purchased for $1.66 million dollars, that is comparable in style and structure to this one. Go to the listing site and click on the pictures to see the interior.
Granted, it's not the Vatican, but really, how much entertaining can a bishop do? Besides, all sorts of cavorting could be going on in those upper rooms with no one the wiser. A smaller home assures an accountable intimacy between guests and less chance of scandal, financial or otherwise. Then there's that line about a camel and a needle. The bishop's lot is 2.4 acres--enough grazing room for at least one camel, I'd say.
