    Christ Cathedral is the new name for the former Crystal Cathedral, the Orange County landmark that is under new ownership, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange County announced Saturday.

    The iconic megachurch's sale for $57.7 million to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange was approved by a bankruptcy judge in November 2011.

    It's hilarious to me that two of the most gay hating churches in America would end up owning a Cathedral designed by a gay man. Apparently, they wanted the best. I'm guessing he was more talented than....well, you know.

    The comments are the best part of the article. Three of the best follow. But there are many worth reading. What a diverse and insightful group of people from both sides of the divide.

    I wonder if the joint has private luxury suites for money changers

    Does this look like a place Jesus would feel comfortable visiting?

    Church, where republicans go to worship a long haired, peace loving, socialist hippy who condemned the rich.

    Why do you think it's hilarious? Just because the world doesnt reflect your bigotted viewpoint, doesnt mean that Christians dont get along with many neighbors who have different beliefs and are less than perfect.

    Jesus wasn't a "socialist hippy who condemned the rich". Plus he would have cut his hair if God wanted him to.

    Just so ya' know.

    Philip Cortelyou Johnson (July 8, 1906 – January 25, 2005) was an influential[1] American architect.
    In 1930, he founded the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and later (1978), as a trustee, he was awarded an American Institute of Architects Gold Medal and the first Pritzker Architecture Prize,[2] in 1979. He was a student at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
    Johnson died in his sleep while at the Glass House retreat. He was survived by his life partner of 45 years, David Whitney,[3][4][5][6] who died later that year at age 66.[7]

    God liked Samson, so he must have liked "long hair". So what does that make Mitt, since he didn't "approve"? A "demon" barber?

    Any reasonable person knows that if right wing conservatives could have found a talented architect who could handle such a job, they would have chosen that person over a "gay", who they revile and hate with with an unprecedented depth. A thoughtful religious person would wonder why God gave such talent to someone his followers hate? Perhaps he simply loves the gays more?

    You are very confused, dear one. Jesus never told people to depend on govt for their health care or food or house payments. God is not the govt.
