New cathedral in Oakland... Oy...

"According to the Oakland Tribune, the city’s rising Cathedral of Christ the Light complex is “the most expensive in American history.” The complex, which includes the nuclear reactor-like church itself, chapels, a plaza, a mausoleum, a conference center, diocesan offices, “gathering places,” and Bishop Allen Vigneron’s residence, is currently running about $190 million – $10 million more than the Los Angeles archdiocese’s Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, (An equally bowel-moving abonination of architecture,) which opened in 2002. "

For how expensive it is you'd think it would look a little more... well... Catholic.

Just goes to show money still can't buy class.
