Bulgarian PM: 'Party, State' Bent on Building Churches
Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov has given a pre-Christmas interview in which he stressed his cabinet's commitment to building and reconstructing Christian devotional sites.
"It is in the present program of our party and government to build churches and monasteries," said Borisov in an interview for Nova TV Sunday.
According to Borisov, currently the state has invested BGN 50 M into the reconstruction of some 150-160 churches and monasteries.
"Some days ago we unveiled a church in Breznik near Pernik that was quite dilapidated. The repair was worth BGN 0.85 M. It became great!" exclaimed the PM.
In the interview, Borisov also stressed on his center-right GERB cabinet's ongoing commitment to all kinds of infrastructure projects, in particular roads.
The Bulgarian PM explained that he would particularly press to see 3 major road reconstructions in capital Sofia (Bulgaria Blvd./Geshov Blvd., the Seminary intersection, and the north section of the Ring Road) completed before the end of his term in office in the summer of 2013.

Come on Boiko,,,we need hospitals and schools,,leave funding these religious zealots to find funding from their members. We are already overrun by cults (you know the ones, mormons, jw's, etc), so keep the state out of religion. Let's stay secular and realistic.
