||I think we can all agree that progress in essential for this city. Building Holy Cross where the church is would help the city grow. Growing is a form of progress!
Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
As for my personal opinion on the subject, I really don't care either way.
Next year I will be leaving and I will never look back. My argument is presented in a 'this makes sense and this doesn't' context. It makes sense to help the city strive. It doesn't make sense to let something like a church impend on growth and education. Even if the education isn't of the highest calibur, it is better than the education we get at church. Should I explain myself? Okay! The essence of Christianity is told to us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the Tree of Knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your mouth shut and hadn't asked any questions.
Either way, life goes on. Evolution is a slow process and it is obvious here in this case of trying to preserve a church because it has sentimental value to you.
The person who stands up and says, 'This is stupid,' either is asked to behave or, worse, is greeted with a cheerful 'Yes, we know! Isn't it terrific?'
