The Curt Jester on Chesterton and church architecture. My favorite line:
with older forms of sacred architecture a church proudly proclaimed itself as a church directed towards the glory of God while some forms of modern style meekly proclaims I am a church, but I might be a bank or an auditorium.
Sadly true! Who declared, sometime after 1965, that churches had to be made as cheaply and ugly as possible? I thought that particular combination was reserved for auditoriums (or worse, cafegymatoriums!)
