‘It doesn’t matter that there’s no one here. It doesn’t matter that they do not come. The villagers know the parson is praying for them in their church.’ – John Betjeman, from A passion for churches.
Except that if no one comes the parson may well be praying for the villagers – but it won’t be in their church. And so I come.
No good Christian would be impressed by this line of thinking. Neither, even more certainly, would Richard Dawkins.
