Aztec temple up the street

Bah ... Aztec temples were a whole lot better looking than the Taj Mahony. That miserable abhomination should be imploded.

Somebody on FR was defending the Taj Mahony the last time there was a thread on it. Saying you had to see it to appreciate it (wish I could remember the FReeper's name).

I think it may be an interesting example of modern architecture, and it has some cutting-edge concepts in it, but what it ISN'T is a CATHOLIC CHURCH.

You’re right, I was unfair to the Aztecs. It’s really more like an explosion in a sheet metal warehouse.

Agreed. Up here in the Bay Area, we have our own new "Cathedral" to deal with, which will be completed next year. Some have likened it's appearance to a nuclear power plant.

Another thing that I found out about Mahoney which surprised me is that he is a licensed helicopter pilot. Say what?? I took flying lessons back in the early 90's, and I remember how it expensive it was for someone of modest means to pursue a simple license to fly around in a single engine Cessna. Helicopters are very expensive to rent on an hourly basis, and you have to get in a lot of hours to receive your license. How does he afford such an extravagance, given his position as a humble shepard of the church?? In addition, how do he and the current Bishop of San Francisco afford to own an ocean-front condo together in Southern California to which they both plan to retire??

I pray for these Bishops, that they may dispense their duties according to God's will (I also pray for myself, that I, and others, may not be lead astray by all the dark thoughts that such situations cause!!!)
