Crystal Cathedral Not On Sale Anymore. Perhaps. For Now.

Televised in front of a worldwide audience: "The Hour of Bankruptcy".

In a move which, to this cynical eyes, reeks of desperation, the Crystal Cathedral board is going to ask the judge overseeing the creditor’s committee to be given another 120 days to raise the $50m they couldn’t raise in the past 10 months.

Talk of positive thinking!

The business plan looks a bit like this: the money will come from somewhere; the Holy Ghost will provide for this; or we might ask 100,000 people to donate 500 dollar each, and Bob’s your uncle.

Look, 100,000 x 500 = 50,000,000. What can go wrong?!

Good luck with that, folks, and congratulations for the nerve. You’re lucky I am not the judge in question, though.

Far from me to wish a Proddie church to grow and prosper, further spreading error; but if the judge allows them further 120 days for this outlandish plan, this might persuade the Diocese of Orange to let the project be, listen to the voice of reason, abandon the idea of buying a protestant temple on the cheap and focus instead on building an authentically Catholic Cathedral. A building made as God intended, built with patience (a virtue) and faith (another virtue), and then able to serve Catholics for many centuries to come.
