What should we think of this, TS?

I remember passing by the Crystal Cathedral the last time I went to Disneyland. Right by St. Joseph's hospital.

I would suggest going by OLHC trad chapel in Garden Grove and asking Msgr Perez what he thinks of it. I am sure he has a thought or two on it.

Perhaps by all cultures he is just trying to be multi-culti P.C. regarding the Hispanic culture there.  Shrug

At least I hope that is what he means and not that all religions are welcome in the Crystal Eyesore.

What "should" We think of it? I am not one to determine what others should think, just posting what I found today. For my own reaction, I am primarily concerned about the word "inclusion" and it's applied context.

He is a "big tent" Bishop, as in he tolerates one extreme to the other. He is a very nice and congenial man, very down to earth. Which in humility has its upside, but also means he shies away from being out in front.

He speaks Vietnamese and Spanish. I think he is saying that with Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile. Also notice that the article says, "believers of all cultures." So were talking about believers. You don't have to leave your heritage and culture at the door. Orange County is a melting pot. Vietnamese, Korean, Hispanic, White, Middle Eastern, Persian, etc etc. His blog is here:
