"A Profound Weakness"

"Some protestant churches are eleborate and contemporary such as crystal cathederal in Garden Grove, California. However, there is not always the money, or even the desire, to build buildings. This portable, blow up church is one alternative solution-though it does seem a bit impotent and gives a whole new meaning to accusations that church services are full of hot air."

(Quote from Christians & Kitsch chapter 13 Betty Spackman)

With this idea of compromising, of not creating this building but replacing it with an, essentially, bouncy castle it takes away the aesthetic of the tradional church building and loses any authenticity.
