If one thinks of that scene from “Planet of the Apes”: the time-travellers discover underground the remains of New York – and there in a transfigured shell of St Patrick’s the clinically dressed survivors worship a retro 1950s A-bomb. I think the new Detroit Cathedral is certainly based on that scene!!

Below, a perfect illustration of the sanctuary as stage approach – does somebody stand in the wings to prompt? Do they sell popcorn during the performance? Do the lights dip and dim for the soliloquies? Is there a balcony scene? Well, this is certainly NOT “worship as an objective fact”. I don’t know if it constitutes worship in any way, except the mutual adoration of priest and congregation one for the other. “Now we see in a glass darkly…”
