Double-parking in the name of the Lord
New parking spaces to curb Sunday spats

The District's Department of Transportation (DDOT) says it will begin creating next month 77 new, permanent parking spaces and 78 Sundays-only spaces in the Logan Circle area.

DDOT officials plan to reconfigure parking spaces and strictly enforce parking rules on Sundays to curb double-parking by churchgoers in the Northwest neighborhood…

Several churches near Logan Circle -- including Metropolitan Baptist Church, Lincoln Congregational Temple United Church of Christ and Tenth Street Baptist Church -- attract large numbers of congregants Sunday mornings and some weeknights, residents say. The congregants, many of whom are not city residents, have tended to double-park their cars, which reduces road space, blocks residents' cars and sometimes stops traffic...

Seems a little un-Christian; driving into town to worship and then saying “screw you” to the residents living in the area around your church.
