This letter appears in today's Leicester Mercury:
Cathedral should not be market
In last Saturday's edition of More, under "Shoppers set to snap up vintage bargains" (February 16), I was disgusted to read of the UK's biggest vintage fair being held in Leicester Cathedral.
The cathedral is God's house and should not be used as a market place.
In the Gospel of John, chapter 2 verses 13-16 say: "When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
"In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
"So he made a whip out of cords and drove all from the temple areas, both sheep and cattle, he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
"To those who sold doves, he said 'Get these out of here, how dare you turn my Father's house into a market?'."
Personally, I think it is a disgrace and against what the Lord taught by the cathedral letting itself be used as a market place.
Obviously for some reason they are not prepared to follow the above verses from the Gospel of John.
The cathedral is a holy place and God's house and should have remained so.
