The Church of England (Bolshevik)

There is hardly a beautiful church in the country, writes Dalrymple,

whose interior the Church of England has not wrecked by its pursuit of false gods. If ever a Bolshevik government were to come to power it would find its work of turning churches into museums of religion and atheism half-done.

Come into the cathedral, children. We've cleared away all that boring religious stuff to make it more relevant to you

Suffer the little yobs to come into the cathedral: we’ve cleared away all that boring religious stuff to make it more relevant to them

Visual desecration

In Winchester cathedral, for example, you will find

  • many dreadful modern artworks
  • stacks of steel chairs and other things one expects to find in a furniture warehouse
  • many brightly-coloured notices
  • a large cardboard cutout of a dinosaur
  • a prominent notice warning people to watch their step at the entrance to a side-chapel

The desecration is

indicative of a loss of confidence, of faith. There is nothing dedicated to the glory of God because there is no God.

I don't care what you say; those side-chapels are lethal

Authors of the barbarism

Among the many notices is one

informing visitors who is in the cathedral hierarchy, just as hospitals put up notices with photos of the most important people in the hospital (Director of Strategic Planning, Director of Diversity, Director of Quality Assurance, etc.)

Who is it exactly who presides over this aesthetic barbarism?

The aesthetic barbarism is presided over by the bishop, Dr Spacely-Trellis

Thus we may know who presides over

this mess, this aesthetic barbarism.

It is, of course, of a piece with what has been done to Winchester as a whole by the stupid, barbaric city council

in concert with the crudest commercial interests.
