There's an old stone chuch here in town that's for lease regularly. If it wasn't on the main drag I would have liked to buy it. It's been a Curves studio, a drug rehab, a drunk driving re-ed school and a children's clothing consignment shop.

I'll get a pic of it tomorrow.

The only thing atheists have in common is a lack of belief in god. All other opinions and beliefs are variable.

So unless you've heard the OP complaining about extravagant churches, the implications may not be accurate.

I seen some pretty heated debates by atheists on what exactly atheism is. Even that "lack of belief in God" isn't universal. Some atheists believe God does not exist for instance.

This reminded me of a church that was turned into a gay night club in downtown Coconut Grove, Florida. The irony was delicious. It has since been “converted” again into something else. Laugh out load

Yet that is not the point.

It's a fugly building, but you are dismissing the very real fact that he made a statement of how religion basically thrives on wasting money on expensive and impressive architecture.

I'm glad they're reduced to such an impoverished state. Perhaps one day we will see Catholic churches which don't have thrones costing $750,000.

RE: The "New" Church, signs they are worried.
Also -- I used to live across the street from an old Catholic Church in Paso Robles, CA, as a teen. Before we moved there, the Church had sold the property off, and it was a meat-market club called "Joshua's". My adolescent mind was mesmerized by all the miniskirts going in and out of the joint.

A church can still be architecturally and aesthetically pleasant, yet not be fancy and extravagant with tons of gold in it. Personally I like churches with old architectures.

The fact that I disagree with what is been taught inside doesn't mean I cannot appreciate the historical value of a building. Old churches are like monuments, so they can be visited by anyone regardless of their own faith or lack thereof.

Anyway, I guess you could describe that church as austere, but it's certainly not the first adjective that comes to mind.
