    Default Catholic Church Crumbling

    Catholic Church cuts parishes in east of Scotland from 100 to just 30
    Gerry BraidenSenior reporterTHE Catholic Church is to undergo a major overhaul across the east of Scotland, with the number of parishes dropping from more than 100 to 30.

    The Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh, which has a Catholic population of around 110,000 and stretches from the northern edges of Glasgow to Fife and the Borders,

    has warned of a "painful and difficult" time ahead as it attempts to arrive at the figure.Its leadership has cited "a lack of priests, a drop in income and the fall in numbers attending Mass".Archdiocese officials insist the dramatic shake-up, arguably the biggest in its 150 year history, does not amount to shutting 80 churches, with new "parish units" potentially containing several existing church buildings.

    However, a significant number would be expected to close their doors.

    The church will continue to crumble until the "Man In Charge" gets rid of the "man in charge". But I think we all know that won't happen - even though we disagree on the reasons why.
    Truth demands knowledge. Deceit demands faith.
