Count me as not a fan of Bishop Brown’s plan to acquire the Crystal Cathedral. Jimmy Mac sent me an email with a tagline like “second collection for air conditioning.” I would love to see the plans for adapting this building for Catholic worship. But I’m strictly a wood and stone man when it comes to churches. Glass is nice for windows and vessels, but not walls and a roof.
I hear the acoustics are horrific in the new acquisition, too. According to this piece, it wasn’t 13 years before the Crystal Cathedral was on its third sound system.
