Although St. John's has resorted to stony and condescending silence to counter their critics, their intentions are no real secret. They want the space occupied by the Walnut buildings to construct a rear covered entrance so that the increasingly elderly congregation (most particularly Big Jim Haslam) won't have to walk 20 feet or use an umbrella when it rains. The Haslam family is the primary funder for the church--without them, the dwindling congregation probably couldn't afford to operate. What's most irritating is that their attitude toward the City is "we're just not going to explain or respond to 'those' people because we don't have to."
