Hideous Cathedrals

Cathedral of St Mary of the Assumption

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

Cathedral of Christ the Light


  1. Yes... those are definitely hideous.

  2. What made you choose these Cathedrals as hideous? What do you consider to be wrong with their designs?

  3. The problem is that they do not look nothing like a church.

  4. But what does a Church have to look like? Gothic Church's? What is wrong with using today's new technology to progress the Catholic religion with new ideas of expression in the design of the house of God? These three buildings are enriched with Catholic symbolism and are built for the Catholic Liturgy.

  5. You can be both modern and beautiful , but these churches in my opinion lack the warmth you get when you look at a church. An exmaple of a church that is modern but still looks Cayholic is on like this:
    Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart,r:0,s:0
    What seems better,r:9,s:0&tx=91&ty=56

  6. That's not a picture of the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption in San Francisco. It's actually a picture of St. Mary's Cathedral in Tokyo, which does not have "of the Assumption" in its name (as far as I can tell). St. Mary's in San Francisco actually bears a striking resemblance to a washing machine agitator, so locally it's known as "Our Lady of Maytag," or, as I like to call it, "Speed Queen of Heaven."
