Church Project Theorem: The End
The End refers to the whole destruction of a church and its parochial property, usually after suffering through The Closer and The Long Goodbye, and being so unappealing that it can't be Caveat Emptor'd into something else.
The Long Goodbye is criminal in and of itself, so anything that ends it has to be good, right? Well, not really. It's sad to see a church rotting before your eyes, but the fact that it's still standing means there's still hope that it will eventually find new life, that it will be renovated and repurposed into something useful.
The End, though, destroys those hopes with a cruel finality. While it's bad to see an empty church crumbling, it's somehow even worse to see a property and never know that it even existed.
