US Bails out Economy UK Seeks to Bail Out Church

November 23, 2008

closed-churchIn increasingly secular Europe it’s hard to trick people out of their money unless you’re an Islamic Preacher or selling spiritual self help books.  England’s state religion is no exception and is projected to close nearly 10,000 churches by 2030 due to a lack of funds.

After much prayer (and lack of divine intervention) the Church of England is turning towards the most powerful force in Great Britain, the British Government, for help.  The plan is for the government to help fund churches that can be “centres of social regeneration.”

I hope they set aside some funds for church soup kitchens in their religion budget, after skimping out on the economic bailout they might need it.
