Letter of protest to to St Paul's Cathedral

I emailed today.
You can too:

Dear Christian

I view the closure of St Pauls in response to the protest against economic injustice outside as a self-inflicted injury. It has gained you publicity, but bad publicity. You cite your "independent" H&S/Fire advisors. I understand that the official authorities had no objection.

It is not too late for St Pauls to repent. We all make mistakes.

There is a choice ahead for humanity, between supremacy of mammon or supremacy of human values of care for the vulnerable, co-operation and sustainability.

As things stand, St Pauls appears to be siding with Mammon.

What if a group of pro-life protesters occupied an abortion clinic, sincerely believing that the activities of the clinic were immoral; would you support police action to remove the protesters?

Your Frugal Majesty! Delighted to hear that. I have been thinking about you recently - about setting up a frugal wiki as a service to all living on a tight budget. I have a good line in wikis at Interested?

Anonymous, obvs I we support their right to non-violent protest outside a clinic (noting however that some "pro-lifers" have a penchant for murder).

Yes some (mainly North American ) pro lifers are seriously confused, supporting the death penalty and murder. I was thinking of the more almost pacifist ‘seamless garment’ European types! I’ve heard some say abortion is the ultimate capitalist crime, killing off unproductive members of society.

Thanks for your comment, but I think this is a bit tangential to the central issue of the apparent apostasy of some members of the CoE.
