A spokesman for Washington National Cathedral says at least three of the four pinnacles on the central tower have fallen off and the central tower appears to be leaning.

The pinnacles are the top stones on the cathedral's towers.

Richard Weinberg, director of communications for the cathedral, said the cathedral has been evacuated and stone masons are assessing the damage.

I suppose if one were looking for moral decline symoblism, the crumbling of the national cathedral would be it.

Didn’t they just celebrate the gay marriage law in New York recently? It has certainly been an epicenter of unorthodoxy in the Episcopal Church.

I certainly agree with you. Remember, Trinity Church in NYC was not harmed on 9-11.

Nothing like this since 1895 according to one of our local earthquake experts. What happened in 1895??

It is a very shallow quake...Makes me wonder if something got detonated early??

I agree with your comment but would add that the Cathedral has long been a leading proponent of apostasy in the church.

Obama’s taken this country so far down to hell that the devil is rising to claim his throne.

Did anyone call the Arch Druid of Canterbury to tell him his building is leaning to the left?

No, you don’t get it — it’s not Obama that has taken this country to hell but the hellish voters who wanted to put him in charge of the country.

Without his constituency there would not be a Bambi in the WH.

Given the heresies that are preached there, I wouldn’t be surprised if God leveled the place.

The left has been chipping away at it for so long now, it is only a matter of time before the whole thing crumbles.

(without divine intervention, that is.)

Considering that the National Cathedral is an edifice of the moribund, perverted, apostate pansexual orgy known as "The Episcopal Church," yes the symbolism is perfect.

So some stones fell from the cathedral. They fell off of the GOP long before this.

Not his building, it’s Presiding (Un)Bishop Kate’s.

Where will the get the money to fix it? TEC is bleeding members and money. They have wasted untold amounts fighting over property of congregations who want to leave.
