I am no fan of Bishop Lennon but I have not heard of him sanctioning "child rape." Prove your statement, please.

Daycare
Homeless shelter
Hair salon
Pet grooming
Shelters for battered women/children
Bed and breakfast
Vocational school

A ton of things can be done with a church. A few should be kept as museums where people can see the savage history of religion.
