Anglican Church wrong to use insurance money on cardboard cathedral

From New Zealand-

A High Court Judge says the Anglican Church was out of line when using insurance money on Christchurch's transitional Cathedral, but notes it was acting in good faith.

The Church decided to build the cardboard cathedral to act as a place of worship and gathering while the Christ Church Cathedral is out of action.

It went to the High Court for clarification as to whether the use of more than four million dollars worth of insurance money was allowed.

Judge Pankhurst says the Trustees were confronted with extraordinary issues in extraordinary times, and he's asked for more information before deciding on the next step.

Bishop Victoria Matthews says they had to go on providing a place for the people as the transitional cathedral nears completion, it's a sign of hope for the city.
