# Hahaha! Needs more empty tents :)

# pffft
good old church can always be relied upon to show their compassionate side rather than winge about their lost profits. Jesus'd be proud. I bet he's done his second coming already and is hidin in one of those tents

# or, possibly
worry about whether the loss of income will affect their ability to keep up with the necessary repairs on a centuries old building.

# it's really just the 1% pulling strings again,
and some vain attempt to make the protesters look like the bad guys.

# good point
but it'll do no good to also point out to him the upkeep for that building is also impacted I'd bet by the drastic cuts caused by the banking crisis/greed - which is the issue the protestors there are highlighting

# I heard Rosa Parks
by not giving her seat up and causing a commotion caused that bus to be delayed too. bloody protesters, no consideration!

# the bloody protestors
are bloody protesting outside the wrong building.

Unlike Rosa Parks, who presumably was actually on a segregated bus, and not a non-segregated one belonging to the Church of England.

Of course, the protestors are a bit stuck because they can't get access to a more appropriate place to protest. But that isn't St Pauls fault.

# they aren't protesting against the Church though,
the Church should be on their side really. In fact I think the actual clergy are on the protesters' side but unfortunately this is politics and it's not that simple—not when the Church's board of trustees is in the hands of people who have fingers in financial pies.

The board of Trustees is represented in the image by the Jet Set Willies in the top hats on the right, in between the clergy and the Demons.

# I wouldn't pretend to know,
but they do have a lot of property, and they're always selling off old churches, although their income probably isn't so much these days now that most people no longer regard regular attendance as a kind of patriotic duty.

# I'm thinking of buying one and setting up a Church of Awesome,
if I happen to come into a few million quid somehow. Back in the old days you'd just have got your mates to build one on the top of a hill with stones you found lying around, it's not so simple anymore, it's all red tape.

the church had loads of property throughout the uk, which brought in millions in rent each quarter.

# Yes.
From what I've read of this Jesus chap, it seems more likely that He would be outside chatting to the protesters than inside whingeing about them.
