Famous Crystal Cathedral: Who's Buying It Now?

Another big real estate deal is closed.   The chapter is finally coming to an end on the Crystal Cathedral where Robert Schuller and family became rich.  (If you sense any strong distaste -- hey, you're good.) Here's the finale for the famous building that hosted the "Hour of Power". Maybe what it needed more than that was a "Day of Prayer" led by its pastors.

I actually did visit it once and heard the famous doctor.  I remember him in his robes stretching out his arms and saying, as he waved them up and down, "we were meant to be free like birds".  I did not consider that a very deep theological statement but it was the highlight of his sermon that day.  I never bothered to hear him again.  One of my better decisions as it turns out.

Anyway, the Catholic Church is buying it.  I'm not Catholic but somehow I have this funny feeling they'll put it to much better use.  Here are the details.
