Lisa, As an academic psychologist and ex-lecturer in the Sociology of Religion my opinion is that the Bishop and those clergy who haven't left the Diocese or gone quiet are religious fundamentalists. Such people are puritanical and hate ceremony, ritual and beauty. They make good bullies and terrorists and love secret agendas.The Bishop actually hates the Gothic building itself and will do anything to have it demolished.

This is one building where it's really worth the effort, and this expert speaks good sense.

lets get something right,that cathederal is a pagan symbol of what we think is the right thing to have.in fact the church is the body of people who gather to worship,this can be in a shop at the park wherever,so if your trying to save it because its a church your wrong.ido not want 1 single dollar of tax or ratepayers money spent on this building.send my tax to the people who are paying a mortgage on a house they cant live in and rent for another house. i live in the western suburbs however i do alot of my work in the eastern suburbs so know how the people must feel.if you want your pagan symbol back thats fine but not before the needs of the people in this city.i most iwould gladly pay extra tax if it went directley to the people not to a building.i think its important to ask the younger people of this city what they want for the future.

Yay!! Fantastic reporting showing a breadth of comparative examples of important historic buildings that have been/can be saved. Thankyou for bringing Mike King to air so that everyone can hear his practical, sensible and prudent assessments. Why on earth won't the Anglican church take his offer of a gratis assessment of the Cathedral. What is their agenda??
