Using positive thinking to save the Crystal Cathedral

The "Crystal Cathedral," the Rev. Robert Schuller's conduit for his message the positive thinking can solve all problems, is going bankrupt. Apparently, they haven't been thinking positively enough about their finances.

I remember the controversy when the Crystal Cathedral was built. After weeks of derision about the amount of money spent on the place, Schuller responded, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Several days later, the Los Angeles Times ran Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Paul Conrad's cartoon showing a cloud over the Crystal Cathedral, out of which a big boulder had been hurled.

You had to laugh.

Its already a tourist attraction. Maybe they can sell it to Disney to turn it into a theme park.
