Mind-boggling. How does this in any way, shape, or form glorify God? Looks more like the Tower of Babel without the exterior ramps.
Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
Act 17:25 Neither is worshiped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
I would think God would be appalled by this blatant waste of the resources he has given to Christians, whether it be a Catholic church or Protestant...
