You're right there

If only they could hear themselves. They'd cringe if they heard a TV evangelists say the same thing.

Comment by Suzanna on June 24, 2018 at 4:47pm

Haha yes, well the bit about a spiritual fire got me. I know they say fight fire with fire, but they give the intelligent religious people a bad name.

You sound like a science geek Suzanna haha

I bet it will cost a lot to rebuild but I'm sure a good chunk of will come from the taxpayer 

Comment by Suzanna on June 24, 2018 at 2:24pm

Nope, also notice in the photo that the bit that didn't get burnt is right next to the stairs. Heat rises, it just travelled upwards, it was the path of lead resistance. Bet it's going to cost a lot to fix though.

I notice these fires aren't prevented......

It doesn't matter that the whole Church is nearly destroyed because one room is relatively unharmed it must be a sign from god.

Newport church's prayer room survives devastating fire

The Bethel Community Church prayer room (right) survived relatively unscathed in the devastating fire which tore through the church.

Pew survey: 60% support separation of religion and government in UK

Six out of ten adults in the UK believe religion should be kept separate from government policy, including a majority of moderately committed Christians, according to the Pew Research Centre.
According to survey data published in Pew's report Being Christian in Western Europe this week, 60% agree that religion should be "kept separate from government policies". Just 38% said "government policies should support religious values and beliefs".
Eighty-one per cent of the religiously unaffiliated supported separation, along with 59% of Christians with 'low levels of commitment' and 55% of Christians with 'moderate levels of commitment'.
The survey also suggested high levels of support for social policies traditionally opposed by religious groups. Almost eight in ten people in the UK support same-sex marriage, including more than 80% of the religiously unaffiliated and Christians with low or moderate levels of commitment. Just 41% of highly-committed Christians agreed.
More than eight in ten support legal abortion, including more than 80% of the religiously unaffiliated and Christians with low or moderate levels of commitment. Half of committed Christians agreed.
National Secular Society chief executive Stephen Evans said the data showed "comfortable public support for the most basic secularist principle".
"The people of the UK broadly agree that religion shouldn't play a part in public policy. That's encouraging. But meanwhile religion remains stubbornly entrenched within our public life. The Church of England is established, bishops retain places in the House of Lords as of right and, despite declining religiosity, the government remains committed to faith schools.
"We still see all too often that those who make public policy retain a deferential attitude towards religion. They should catch up with the public."
Last year the NSS called for a major rethink of religion's public role in its publication Rethinking religion and belief in public life: a manifesto for change.
Pew's findings are similar to those outlined in a YouGov poll on Christmas Day 2017, when 62% of British people said no religious clerics should have "an automatic right to seats" in the UK legislature. Sixty-five per cent said politicians should keep their political beliefs cordoned off from their decision-making.
The Pew survey found that just 18% of people in the UK are Christians who go to church services at least once a month but 55% are 'non-practising Christians'.
Survey data on the religious affiliation of the UK population has tended to vary depending on the nature of questions that are asked.
Last year the British Social Attitudes survey found that a majority of Britons had no religion. In that survey almost 3,000 people were asked: 'Do you regard yourself as belonging to any particular religion?' If respondents said yes, they were asked which one, without being given a list of religions.
