Would you buy a church?

With so many of them closing down I wonder if I could buy one and turn it into a really cool home or something.

I've thought about buying old industrial buildings because I think their beautiful and would like to live in one. However I can't recall fantasizing about buying a church. There's nothing stopping you from buying a church and turning it into a home (other than money). The the servers that run the website are in a church. The founder of bought an old stone church for running the organization in.
I might live in one, but not buy. I don't want to own something that constantly reminds me of the religion I left.
There's one near where I live that has been turned into really nice modern apartments.

There was a man on EP that used to renovate old churches and schools into beautiful mansions. They were always interesting creations.

Absolutely. Some of them would make amazing homes.

[@681848,TheAmazingPeekaboo] Not necessarily. Some of the older ones might be priced quite reasonably. Of course a lot depends on the location.

[@638129,LyricalOne] Yes, if they're downtown.

[@681848,TheAmazingPeekaboo] And if you're handy, you can pick up a fixer upper to bring down costs.

I’ve seen a few repurposed as businesses, such as a dog kennel. I think I saw one turned into a residence.

Yes if it's one of those old stunning buildings
and then I'll have to burn sage bushes
and remove the unholy caught in the walls and floors
and the ghosts in the ceiling

[@22111,ImperialAerosolKidFromEP] It doesn't matter. Christianity is dying in Europe and most of North America.
[@681848,TheAmazingPeekaboo] even if that were true, there [i]are[/i] other parts of the world. Big ones

[@22111,ImperialAerosolKidFromEP] It is true. Christianity is steadily dropping in adherent % worldwide for the past half century. Check the world almanac.

If I were rich I might start a church and call it Last Church of Wherever.

I knew some guys that rented a church, it was the party place

Why not, praying in em doesnt seem to work that well.
