Fla. Man Showing Off OnStar Arrested

"ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. Mar 2, 2006 (AP)- A man showing off his OnStar system in his Cadillac Escalade found out the system worked too well. Ralph A. Gomez, 38, was being held Wednesday on $15,000 bond on charges of possession of an illegal narcotic within 1,000 feet of a church and possession of drug paraphernalia. "

I'm confused. Why does it matter how close he was to a church? I could see it being a bigger crime if it's near a school, but a church? Or is a church considered to be full of easily-manipulated people who aren't mature enough to make their own decisions, just like an elementary school?
