Chicago Parish of St. James to be Destroyed

Edit: another story from the Agent Provacateur from Chicago, where other churches, part of the ancient church's legacy to this dark age, are being demolished as the auto-destruction of the Church continues. The photo gallery speaks volumes, and there's no telling into what curio and junk shops the various furnishings, statues and altar pieces will find themselves.

[Chicago Tribune]To the dismay and anger of congregants of the historic, 133-year-old St. James Catholic Church in Bronzeville, a crane hoisted a flexible arm to the top of the front of church Wednesday morning, as it prepared to poke a symbolic hole putting an end to a fierce fight from congregants to keep the church intact.

About a dozen congregants of the St. James parish tried to block the entrance of the church, questioning the expiration date of a demolition permit.

But police showed them a current permit and demolition preparations were underway by 9:45 a.m. Crews were not expected to do major demolition work today, but started work to ensure the permit remained valid.,0,3570488.story

Another sad goodbye to reverence, worship,
exultation. Too many already forget that Christ is their Redeemer. They think He is their brother.
