Our farther who art in real-estate, hallowed be thy price ,forgive use our carbuncles as we forgive those who refuse planing permission against use.for thine is the sales pitch the profit and the margin. For ever and ever our money.

Hmm not exactly the teachings of Christ.

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!

I suspect Micky's post was inspired by the news of Renzo Piano's 'sermon' (that's what they're marketing it as, but it's just a talk/lecture really) in the cathedral as part of the Architecture Biennale:

and also the All Hallows Copperfield Street saga last year.

Hi mickeysalt

I have just seen your posting and I'm pretty insulted by it. You seem to be attacking the Christian prayer here. Why do you feel you can do this with a prayer which we hold sacred. You wouldn't dare do this to another religion.

I realise that you are peeved by their decision but think twice next time before insulting the Christian religion please!!!

Doesn't Mickeysalt make a good point. His satire is about the organisation that is the 'christian church' not the visionary and idealist who started it all. Some might say that the 'Christian Church' has moved a long way away from those visionary ideals. A bit like New Labour.
