I think A.
Demonstrating something while they are still standing.
Others seem to suggest that it is the walls that have the design and maintenance.

C is out because the use of semicolon seperate the additional clause " that ........."
it's more logical to say that the churches, as objects with no senses, demonstate that instead of how. Thus, I eliminate B and E.
IMO, connecting the two related clauses by using gerund " demonstrating" is preferred to "and they".
I'm left with A.

A looks ok for me. "They " in the other statements seems to be ambiguous.
