A Coronet For Westminster Abbey

I know that I might be better placed placed to blog about ordination and all that stuff, but THIS ARTICLE just caught my eye and has mightily annoyed me.

At the foot of Westminster Abbey are homeless folks. The nation is in crippling debt, poor areas of the country are being left with resourceless church buildings, and perhaps even more resourceless church leaders (not a criticism but thats where cuts are being made). Meanwhile we are suggesting that we put a ridiculous piece of campery on the top of Westminster Abbey, which to now has been impressive but not ostentatiously indulgent. Lord forgive us.
