Deconsecration is the act of removing a religious blessing from something that had been previously consecrated by a minister or priest of that religion. The same act when performed by a member of a differing religion may be considered a curse by some religions and not a complete removal of the original blessing. The practice is usually performed on churches to be rendered to public (secular) use or demolished, but in its most generalized practice may be performed on any object, person or place that has been previously blessed in some manner.
