I think the Los Angeles (nominally) Catholic Cathedral is uglier. Although the architectural theme of this cathedral is abhorrent, at least it has one. compare:

I have had sympathy for the architecturally deficient Roman Catholic brethren, but we now see that bad architecture spans the denominations and faiths. I have seen some Baptist buildings that would make great Country Western performance venues, some Apostles of God sanctuarys that would make a Jimmy Swaggart weak in the knees and now this thing.
I love to see a the great architectural attempt, I love Thorne Crown for example, but some of what has come along in the last fifty years are just obnoxious.
