It seems members of a Co Antrim Congregationalist Church took advantage of the 12th night to tear down their church. In scenes somewhat reminiscent of the bible the congregation turned up in the middle of the night to tear down the temple and woke locals in Straid as they tore pews from the building!

Seems they were worried at an intervention by the local council who were considering listing the building. Not even the CII members would have moved with this divine speed to rip out a building ahead of a council.

Where I live the parishioners of the COI have been frantically trying to raise funds to stop their listed church from collapsing. Yet here the parishioners are trying to tear down their own church while everyone else tries to save it and have it listed!

WTF?
Northern headbangers - pure and simple.

It's like getting the sniggers during a church service, you know you shouldn't but the more you think of militant Christians tearing pews out of the church...
