Swedish priest H.B Hammar suggest that the state should close or blow up empty churches.
H.B Hammer is the brother of Archbishop of K.G Hammer.
Close down empty Churches, or put them is a bag of insects. But the best idea is to blow them up, explains Hammar in a OPED in the Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet.
The Newspaper have used a poll to get feedback from the Swedish readers. 20 per cent of the responders wants empty churches to be converted to houses. 17 per cent feel that abandoned Churches should become night clubs, and eight percent suggest restaurants..

There are many reasons why blowing up Churches is not such a bad idea. If not, the Church of Sweden might convert them into Mosques.
For a Christian, it hardly matters. The Bible says that God do no longer live in buildings made by human hands. So the Church can never be a “building” in the first place.
1 Corinthians 3:9
For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.
Religious people have understood that the Church is the body of Jesus, and made of living stones. That is us, who obey Him.
