Sydney Archdiocese launched a petition asking that churches be “allowed” to open. Presently, there is an obvious double-standard.
Archbishop Anthony Fisher, 60, explains on FaceBook.com (May 27) that “it makes no sense that a bus that stops outside St Mary’s Cathedral can have more people in it than the Cathedral itself.”
Sydney cathedral has 2600 sqm. The average size of a city bus is 37 sqm which makes a bus 70 times smaller than the cathedral.
And, “It also makes no sense that people have to sign in when they enter the Cathedral, but not when they enter the café across the road”.
