Rudman doesn’t want to spend other peoples money

Rather than advocate for two new cathedrals he wants one:

At the centre of the Christchurch CBD sits a wrecked Anglican cathedral and a Bishop with a $50 million to $100 million shortfall in rebuilding money. Down the road, her Catholic cousin in God faces the same crisis. A munted Basilica and guesstimated rebuilding costs of up to $100 million.

To a heathen outsider, the solution seems blindingly obvious. Pool their insurance payouts and build something splendiferously modern – and earthquake-proof – that they can share, without beggaring themselves and their dwindling band of future generations by trying to recreate the old.

Brian the problem is that Anglicans and Catholics are a bit like those who want a publicly funded theatre and and those who want a publicly funded death metal venue. Both serve the same function, just slightly different interpretations on entertainment that from the outisde is the same, and with some minor negotiation around the exact placement of the mosh pit.
