Default Don't turn our churches into nightclubs, urges Vatican

Quote:
The Vatican on Thursday warned Italy's bishops against letting deserted churches be transformed into nightclubs if the decision was taken to sell the places of worship.

Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi, the Vatican's new culture commissar, urged "the greatest caution" after announcing that Roman Catholic churches with few worshippers could be sold off.

He gave the example of a church in Hungary which was "transformed into a nightclub and where striptease took place on the altar."

The archbishop, who is president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, said dwindling numbers of worshippers at some churches meant it now made sense to sell, or even destroy, the buildings.

"Faced with falling number of worshippers, a phenomenon which we are also unfortunately witnessing in the centre of Rome, churches without any artistic value and which need significant work can be sold or destroyed," he told reporters.

Italian bishops' groups would be responsible for deciding whether the sites should be sold, said Ravasi, adding each case would be separately assessed.

All I can say is, if they aren't using the place, why let it sit and rot? The Acoustics would be fantastic, and God's a DJ anyway!

if the churches were made into clubs, there would be a whole lot more sins to confess the morning after

That is certainly one way to get church attendance up, though perhaps not the way the bishops intended.

Limelight was a shitty club? Im guessing you never went when it was in its prime!? One of the most classic clubs in NYC history right there. There were some rediculous parties there back in the day. Anybody who has been in the scene long enough will never discredit the effect this place had on things.

I'm not sure why Hawk wrote that. I had a lot of fun at the Limelight in the early to mid 90s. Moments I will cherish for a long time!!!

Oh get lost with your bullshit propaganda. With your logic you can find a connection in ANY thread. Or in anything for that matter. Even just the first minute of that video is so full of plain lies and non-existent connections that i wonder how you ever got through the first damn year of your life

i disagree, although it suits certain genres more than others imo but it can be a real enhancer, some of my best concerts took place in churches and cathedrals (Kronos Quartet, Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil..yes i'm a bit of a goth so what? :P ) and Tangerine Dream got temporarily banned from french churches in the 70s after their gig in Reims cathedral where 6000 ppl tried to access the 2000 capacity venue. Now where do you get those attendencies these days? If some business savy clerics would transform them into kinda cultural centres they even get the chance of drumming their message of faith and salvation home, although strippers would be beneficial

Show me how its lies. So far all you've done is contribute your opinions of other members, and nothing towards contributing to the discussion of the OP itself. It's all about your motives, and your intent. My motives are pure, just to provide information for which the person looking at can discern themselves... your motives on the other hand... malicious, at best!
