      it would be a very morbid kind of muesum, no one would want to visit something like that. People are saying it’s good the council voted not to sell it but we all know well it is just going to sit there disused for the next few decades. It would have been better to develop it alongside a memorial and at least bring some life back to the street.

    jesus .. how could someone even propose to turn it into a hotel. That’s the most tasteless proposition I’ve heard outside of fiction. Glad it was blocked, such an insane idea.

      Church and state would love it all to disappear and be wiped from the history of our country
      And a hotel would be just dandy
      Strange we have heard nothing about the reply to zaponnes mystical letter to the pope
      Maybe someone in the dail needs to keep pestering her about it

        Or. Sell it so it doesn’t go disused , create jobs and all that. And instead, from now on parents educate children to the evils of organized religion and the dangers of church/state collusion. Of course if you were to do that you would also have to put your money where your mouth is and pull your kids out of all the religious sacraments such as christenings, communions & confirmations and clue them in on the farce that is church weddings and the general low intelligence of genuinely religious people and hypocrisy of everybody else. No , the lazy way out is to make his a museum run at a loss at the states expense( not the churches) , so people can forget while telling themselves they wont forget, but really they will forget and look forward to the kids confirmation day out like the morons they are.

      They cant, too many stupid idiots want a shrine run at a loss, forever, at the states expense, (but not the churches). So they’ll keep blocking the sale. Whereas most intelligent secular people don’t care if its sold off. The dopes that want to keep this around as a “reminder” actually think that it will be what keeps church and state separated. They need to get a life.
