Deus Est Deus Pauperum [Oct. 30th, 2011|12:00 pm]
Tony Grist
So much fuss about a few tents in a churchyard! Why can't the clergy of the cathedral and the city fathers and all the other enrages just look skywards as they hurry past? Why does it offend them so? I really don't believe there's a health and safety issue- and from the images I've seen, the cathedral steps are empty and the gates unblocked. The campers- who seem to be mostly nice,  well-meaning people, latter-day hippies and the like- offer no violence.  What's the problem?

Simple. The people who run St. Paul's are ashamed. They can't bear it that  the scruffs on their doorstep look more like Christians than they do.

At 70 I am there, although our Occupy site is not on church grounds. I do not stay overnights, though, in respect for my poor old aching bones.
"They can't bear it that the scruffs on their doorstep look more like Christians than they do."
A big "Amen" to that!
(Oh, yes, one question: you mentioned an entry fee???? Really? For a church?

Yes, St. Paul's charges an entry fee of £14.50: that's an enormous amount.
