    Cleric: 'This is desecration of a very holy place'

    Protest camp: Masked demonstrators outside St Paul's Cathedral which has been daubed and human waste left inside the building

    Staff at St Paul's have been forced to clear up human waste inside the cathedral, it emerged today.

    They have made several trips with mops to remove the mess found on a carpet inside the church near the West Steps - just yards from the anti-capitalist protest camp.

    One cleric furious at the use of the building 'as a latrine' said: ' This is desecration of a very holy place. it hurts me and it hurts the staff.'
    The cathedral workers have met senior clergy to vent their feelings over the clean-up.

    St Paul's has blamed 'hangers on' and not protesters at the tented camp which closed one of London's most iconic attractions for a number of days last month.

    Cathedral spokesman, The Rev Rob Marshall, told the Sunday Times: 'We are aware of these kind of problems and raising them in our daily talks with camp members who we are not presuming at all are responsible.'
    Two senior clerics have quit since the Occupy London Stock Exchange camp was set up on October 15 as part of a global campaign against corporate greed.

    So, protesters can crap inside a cathedral, but you burn one Qur'an...

    These are liberals. There are no holy places, just environmentallly sustainable places.

    The Anglicans have driven English society farther and farther left for decades, led by a particular type of upper-class inbred asshat in vestments like those who are saying it is just 'Hangers-on.' It's hard to feel any pity or sympathy for them as they are forced to reap what they have sown.

    It reminds me of the old joke about the homeless man asking the priest for toilet paper while in the confessional.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I'm not sure how it works in England, where the church is also run by the state. But in the US, that church is private property, and those who desecrate it would be subject to arrest and punishment, hopefully in the form of being forced to clean up that church without wearing rubber gloves.

    In Britain, it is probably covered under the blasphemy laws or the leash laws or some combination thereof.
