    They need these Anglican churches sold to free up the land for new mosques.

    I'm a little surprised that our new Catholic brothers and sisters had good reason to think they would be able to continue use of the Anglican facilities. God bless them for the many sacrifices they may have to make.

    I'm not sure how you share the tabernacle, though.

    There's a perfectly logical solution to the problem: let the Anglicans keep the churches they have built since Henry and Elizabeth ripped the English church from the Catholic Church, and let the Catholics have all the ones that existed prior to that time. Oh, was I not supposed to be logical?
