Coptic Church tower to replace sauna site in Australia
« on: May 24, 2011, 06:52:40 PM »
A Coptic Orthodox Church and theological college will be built on the site of a former sauna in Melbourne, Australia.

From the article:
Quote
The new centre would provide a place of worship for its 18,000 followers and offer financial and spiritual support to the church's mission in Fiji.

The planning application includes a 360-seat worship area, bookshop and soup kitchen. The building will also have 280 apartments.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

"Melbourne University academic Dr Graham Willett, author of Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne, hopes the church will commemorate the site's history with a pink plaque."

These people can't help themselves, can they?

I think it would be a good idea:catechumens can stand on it when they renounce the devil and all his works prior to baptism.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
