Do not demolish St. Patrick's Church in
Watrvliet NY. It is wrong.

Shirley, are you prepared to buy it and take care of renovation and maintenance yourself?

The paper reports that the church already needs $6,000,000 in renovations. The diocese isn't willing to invest that money, and Watervliet can't afford it.

You have two choices... you sell the building now, to a willing buyer who will put a badly needed market into a low income area -OR- you let the building rot where it stands until there's a fire or the roof caves in and the town that can't afford to buy it is forced to tear it down anyway.

Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Why not just dig a giant hole and put all of Watervliet into it?

1. How come the Basilica in Lourdes, France is still standing? St. Patrick's Church/Watervliet NY
is a replica of the Basilica. Just google both and you will see.
2. St. Patrick's is so gorgeous where did the money
come from to build it.
3. How would the Vatican like it if one of their
buildings was demolished and a supermarket put in it placve.
4. I wish some religious very devotional community
with wealthy benefactors would take this church
make it into a shrine that would attract people
from all over.
5. I know this block of land is hot potatoes
but pls don't knock this church down...no good.

The church was built by scamming money from the poor with threats of going to hell. Now the Catholic Church can't turn a profit on it, so away it goes; screw the locals!

Take a look at St. John's on Green St., Albany. This is what St. Patrick's will look like in 10 years.

You are so darn broke because the Albany RC Diocese has spent its money defending pedophile priests and paying off the victims of priestly abuse.If the Diocese had any money it should complete the rehab on the Cathederal, not sink a dime into a dead church in a nearly dead city. Until a new Bishop replaces creepy HH the Albany Diocese will struggle.

How dare you refer to our Bishop as "creepy". He is a man of God, and a local boy too boot.

Proper Roman Catholics honor all priests and particularly the present Albany Bishop Howard regardless of any and all human transgressions they may have committed. The matter of priests and children is entirely a spiritual matter and is inappropriately caste by the media/courts as a legal/criminal issue. Priests are above the criminal and civil laws created by man. Period.

You are a complete idiot to say that priests are above and outside the laws of this country. Such a mentality is exactly why the priests club composed of lovers of boys was permitted to exist within the church for many, many, many decades.

Gays do not serve the Lord, they serve themselves. Solution: ban the gays from priesthood and the children will be safe.

From China comes the truth. And after gays are banned from the priesthood, let's ordain women as priests. The nurturing aspect of the female personality would serve the world's Roman Catholics wonderfully.

Let us return to a civil conversation regarding Saint Patrick's in Watervliet. The last comment from Florida is particularly egregious in its apparent defense of homosexuality and is also dismissive of communism, which in principle, is philosophically similar to the Catholic Church. One of the most unGodly human acts is buggery. Now that smells; just saying.......
