The continuing spread of architectural travesties - the Oakland Cathedral

Inside Bay Area - Local News

The Diocese of Oakland has begun work on a new cathedral - the Cathedral of Christ the Light that is to be completed in 2008.

You know that you are in trouble when the article states,

The unique cathedral design will surely draw visitors and tourists from all faiths.

Since, we all know that the purpose of a church is to draw people of all faiths, funny - I always thought that it was to inspire worship of God.

The new cathedral looks more like an auditorium than a church. Perhaps even like Superman's fortress of solitude. Images are available here.
