I think the title of this is a little unfair. It is the Church Commissioners, NOT Southwark Cathedral
, who are the people involved in this.
The Church Commissioners are a separate body, not under the control of the church, and I have often wondered where they get their ideas. So far as I can see their only argument is that, like any other charity, they are required by law (and the Charity Commission) to maximise revenue on their assets, which rather overlooks using money wisely...
But please do not blame Christians for something over which we have no control!
