Is this Church ugly?

Well, I guess the key question to me is - does it look like a church? I understand that nowadays, with the rise of megachurches, churches don't necessarily look traditional anymore. Which is fine. But Catholic churches, in my opinion, should cherish their tradition and look, well, traditional. The specimen in question is the new (multi-million dollar) Oakland Cathedral of Christ the Light (don't even get me started on the name - they wanted to avoid choosing a saint so that it wouldn't be "ethnically divisive." *sigh*)
Check out the new cathedral's website. Interesting, it's just not my style.

  1. I tend to be very traditional in how I'd like to see my churches, so it doesn't do much for me. I don't always understand why Catholic Churches try to appear more Protestant at times - just be yourself, church :)
