Front and Center - the Tabernacle

I see a problem with that language, because I just bet some will argue that a side chapel (at least their side chapel) IS a visible, prominent, and noble space. I wish he had said simply "front and center." Then some would argue that their sanctuary with their free standing altar could not accomodate that.

But even here in this modern monstrosity (below) one could erect a free standing tabernacle in the corner behind the altar.
