Posted on 02/10/2014 8:24:34 PM PST by Epistolizer
The pediment of The Cathedral Church Of St. Paul in Boston has stood empty for 190 years, as the builders of the impressive Greek Revival structure ran out of money during the initial construction phase. It was finally completed in May of 2013, but since then it's come under fire for its unusual design, which features a backlit nautilus sculpture.

No worries here, episcopalians left Christianity a while back.
My whole family is from the Episcopalian church. My uncle is a Bishop of a major US city. I left it, many years later I got saved many years later after I heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and was invited to respond to it.
I guess they don’t want to offeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeend non-Christians.
Arte Johnson said it well.
Episcopalians are not Christians. They’re just becoming more open about it.
There is more Christianity in Mormonism than Epsicopalianism.
I was senior warden of a very old (1832) Episcopal church in Tennessee back in the early 80s.
I guess it was just too good for the homosexuals and other assorted leftist to pass up.
It is so sad what became of the once great denomination.
I now attend the Catholic church.
I left my diocese in 1997, when my diocese said we had to embrace homosexuality to get more people into it. My church has lost more than 2/3 of its members and attenders since then, and most of the remaining folks are on life support and don’t have enough strength to object to the homosexuals that now control the place and divert the endowment to use for promoting the homosexual agenda.
I guess that could == things are tough all over.
Mormonism is just a deception. Episcopalianism is Satanic.
Ridicule the e-pals, they deserve it!
Pro Sodomite, Pro Abortion...the Bible says leaders should be men.
Screw the Bible. My rector told us about “Blessed Ambiguity”, they now say screw that too.
I've been thinking about that one recently.
How to get through to people like that? They're a lot like liberal Democrats in their thinking. Oh, wait...they are liberal Democrats.
It's like they need to go back and start all over somewhere nearer the beginnings.
Their High Priestess Schori directed her first prayers as their leader to “Mother Jesus.”
Wow is that ugly. It should be no surprise that the Ecopalian Presiding Bishopess, Ms Schori, wrote her PHD thesis on, I-kid-you-not: Giant Squids. Really.
Resembles a squid too in some ways.
I’m mildly curious to see the offending statue on this church from a religion no else likes anyway, but I don’t click on Huffington.
Many Italian churches built over the last 1600 or so years feature very disturbing decor pieces.
The front wall of the Sistine Chapel is a good example, including Michelangelo’s self-portrait of himself as an empty skin signifying how he felt after dealing with the church during his work on the chapel.
The good news is that none of this has the slightest thing to do with one’s salvation.
“self-portrait of himself”
Very poor and redundant writing, Sister Mary Joseph (were she still with us) would kick my butt for that one.
Rap on the knuckles! RAP! No dangling participles. No errors in sentence structure! It was rapped away.
The embrace of episcopalianism as practiced would.
