Have you ever been to the Cathedral of St John the Divine in NYC? I stumbled upon it today and it completely blew me away. I also take some spite pleasure in its decadence b/c of atheists who go "if religion is about giving to the poor why are churches nice buildings??" (because church people, which includes the majority of poor people, deserve nice spaces and MAN atheists only care about the decadence of art when it's religious art.)
preaching to the choir, but no, I haven’t ever been.
