New, 25 comments

Damn, those live animals are expensive. KTLA reports the Orange County-based megachurch Crystal Cathedral, whose church was designed by architect Philip Johnson has filed for bankruptcy. "The megachurch, birthplace of the "Hour of Power" televangelist broadcast, announced its filing Monday. Church spokesman John Charles said the church owes about $7.5 million to a host of vendors for services such as advertising and providing the use of live animals for Easter and Christmas services."
