Renters, that is. Bishop's blast at 'satanic' London Fashion Week show that turned a church into a catwalk
The show, part of London Fashion Week, was highlighting the work of controversial Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu, whose creations have been worn by celebrities including singer Rihanna.They'd fit right in with the Juggaos and Juggalettes. And they do their own costumes.
Against a backdrop of demonic images, heavily made-up models wearing horns or displaying upside-down crosses paraded down the aisle-turned-catwalk of St Andrew Holborn church in Central London last week.
Ms Findikoglu, who has been described as an ‘up-and-coming rebel of the fashion world’, told Vogue magazine earlier this month of her fascination with the occult and magic.
But the former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, said the satanic aspect of the show was ‘not acceptable’ and could lead people ‘to areas where we don’t want them to go.’
He said: ‘Christians will be outraged. This was not necessary to do. In the sense that Christ’s name is being dishonoured, it is blasphemous.’
The bishop said the general rule was that churches should not do anything that ‘dishonours Christ or contradicts the Christian faith’.

‘That’s the rule of thumb that they should follow. They have to be very discerning about that,’ he added.Try this in Syria. Or even Turkey.
He questioned whether the church, which has apologised, had exercised proper caution when it took the booking, and called for an investigation.
