Netflix: The Two Popes

"Despite Catholic teachings being some of the most outspoken when it comes to defending the unborn and standing against abortion, statistics show that when speaking about Catholic politicians on Capitol Hill, there is a wide disconnect between their faith and their politics. Matthew Schmitz, the editor of First Things magazine, is here to discuss his recent article that claims the unborn would have less to fear, 'if every Catholic were removed from Congress tomorrow.'"

They reference an article in the above video. I've found it for your convenience:

I don't hate it.

I do question why the tabernacle looks like some kids painted it.

Do I prefer this to a traditional style cathedral? No way. But, I do try to see the beauty in all things--including modern design and architecture. I also see the ecumenical beauty in taking over a former Protestant church.

Update: Found an old thread discussing this way back in 2011 before the diocese bought it:

Wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this? I'm not a big fox news fan but I admit when I do watch TV an hour or two a week (if that) I will watch them for news. Tucker Carlson has been doing segments on UFO's and this interview was from the other morning on Fox & Friends. There has been reporting in all mainstream media lately on this topic.

In a Wednesday morning interview with "Fox & Friends," Christopher Mellon, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, who has written extensively on the topic before, outlined the reasons the Navy is concerned about these sightings.

"We know that UFOs exist. This is no longer an issue," he said. "The issue is why are they here? Where are they coming from and what is the technology behind these devices that we are observing?"

There are indications, Mellon said, that the objects reported by Navy pilots in 2014 and 2015 were doing things that aren't possible in this physical realm. Navy pilots revealed that they saw UFOs moving at hypersonic speeds, performing acts “beyond the physical limits of a human crew,” and emitting "no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes."


Luis Elizondo, a former military intelligence officer who ran the Pentagon's secret UFO unit, says given all the evidence he's seen we're not alone.


“In 18 years of flying airplanes, this thing had characteristics I never saw,” Commander Fravor said. “It was almost jaw-dropping. It was very strange.”


"There are three hypotheses and none of them are very comfortable. One is one of our adversaries have leapfrogged us. Russia or China. Another theory is these are some test aircraft of the U.S. I think we can disregard that now with the Navy itself acknowledging these are not American. And the third popular theory of course is these may be from some civilization elsewhere beyond our solarsystem. None of these theories are comfortable to contemplate."
