  • Is Gothic the only acceptable style of church architecture?
    Does Catholicism entail having the mind, training and creativity of a middle ages European?
    Now if the inside of the church looks like a wreckovated novus ordo church, then that's a different story. What if the inside were decent? At least it doesn't look like a shopping mall.

  • Look at the Cathedral seat of Iceland's Bishop, not fully Gothic, but not modern either.

    I posted this as, while reading about Iceland, saw the pic and thought it was funny shape, I posted it fore humor sake, for gosh sakes..........

    we are a touchy bunch, no?

  • I'm just caught by the thingy about this church being used as an observation tower. Then of course, it has a statue of Leif Ericson out front...

    I can see putting a statue of Leif in front of a school, but  a church...?

  • Leif was probably saved through implicit faith.

    Leif was saved through explicit faith since he was a Catholic!

    There's no such thing as being "saved through implicit faith".

    "Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic faith." - St. Athanasius (Athanasian Creed), repeated by Pope Eugene IV at the Council of Florence

    Ladislaus was being sarcastic.

    Oh. I see he was banned too.

    Well for those interested, Leif Ericson was a Catholic viking and missionary in Greenland. He was converted to the faith and baptized by the great King of Norway Olaf Tryggvason.
