What Would Jesus Have Done?

A number of tents (many of them unoccupied at night) have been pitched by anti-corporate protesters around St. Paul's (price of admission- £14.50) and the cathedral authorities have closed the building because they allege there are health and safety issues and now they're worrying about the loss of revenue and have called in the lawyers and the Bishop of London has issued a statement saying- in effect- "I've been talking to the bankers myself, so you can pack up and go home now and leave things to the big boys". 

I haven't been there myself and reckoned up the situation, but I can't help feeling that there is something inherently feeble in this response. 

I mean, what exactly is the point of the Church if when the burning issues of the day come and plonk themselves down on its front doorstep it shuts the door on them and tells them to go away?
