When churches look like this, I like them.
Nobody is being indoctrinated here anymore. Nobody is being preached hokum here anymore. No longer does a medieval organization attempt to influence life and politics from here. No longer is this a place where people waste their time every Sunday and leave with their pockets emptied.
But this is an exception in Romania. All over the country, bombastic and mostly Orthodox churches are being built. Even in the smallest villages, devoid of schools, doctors, streets and sometimes even a shop, churches the size of cathedrals are being erected. Reportedly, every three days a new church is completed. Among other sources, this is funded by taxpayers, including those with a different or no religion at all. Obviously, that money is missing somewhere else. – If you ask me, I would use the money to upgrade the Romanian railways instead.
