If this was a 'Church of England' church, then I would place this under their general desire to be fluffy and inclusive, seeing no real harm in allowing what they perceive to be playfully rebellious expressions as they are all of God and lead back to God. they'd probably allow Islamic incursion too but the Muslims all have their own mosques by now and don't feel a great need to integrate apart form the occasional symbolic gesture (usually following a terrorist attack).Pauli137 wrote: ↑Sat Sep 30, 2017 11:48 pmI saw that last week when Kevin Flaherty posted it to his site. I could excuse this as advanced trolling, except ... why do this in a church? That seems especially in-your-face. If St. Andrew's knew it was simply a troll, why allow them to use the space? Instead -- and this impression is based on knowledge that satan-worship does exist within both the Anglican and Catholic churches -- they are engaging in a variation of Revelation of the Method?semper occultus wrote: ↑Sat Sep 30, 2017 10:09 pmhttps://www.premier.org.uk/News/UK/Chur ... shion-show

A London church has apologised for hosting a satanic fashion show.
St Andrew's Church in Holborn received criticism after it offered up its building as part of London fashion week on Monday evening.
The Anglican church's alter was transformed into a runway for models wearing inverted crosses, devil horns and vampire costumes to walk down in Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu's Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
As it's a Catholic church though, I'd expect them to be a bit more switched on and their motivation could be as you said above. There is still the possibility though that the relevant authorities have become as dimwitted as their COE counterparts due to falling popularity and are looking for an edgy (and more youthful) alternative to bingo.
