Re: the demolition of churches and cathedrals

Although there are indeed many religious places of historical worth, most of them are not so and Church building continued at a rate of thousands per year way past the heydey of attendance. These thousands were mostly standard, formulaic, almost completely stoic, with little significance.

I personally I always inclined towards re-use, rather than destruction, as you kindly point out.

... and yeah I agree that the National Trust much of the time has put money and time into some really quite shallow ideas! But that's a completely different topic.

Hey Lucy; are you L.W. of G.C.C.? If not then smile in the knowledge that you share a name with a nice friend of mine :-) If so, then... hiya... based on the "Dear Sir" address at the beginning of your response, I'm inclined to think that you've missed out (until now) on what a coincidence this is!

Very helpful paper - told me just what I needed to know. Have you thought about the difference between the USA and the UK? Why is the rest of the West secularising and the USA leading the world for ghastly charismatic Xtian warmongers? I think Australia is following the USA pattern and NZ (home of the Jedi Knight concept i believe) is even higher on the secular scale.
Cheers and thanks

Sorry the above wasn't supposed to be in the demolition of churches strand.
