The Ugliest Churches in the World
By Nicholas G. Hahn III Fans of baroque church design are sometimes accused of snobbery. Yet after readers peruse this kaleidoscope of ugly houses of worship, you will likely have a little more sympathy for the stodgy. Not only are these artistic innovations ugly, but also bizarre, weird, dumb, and gross. These holy train wrecks come to you from Monroe, Ohio to Uvari, India. Gaze upon these Catholic chapels and cathedrals, nondenominational megachurches, Baptist buildings, and even one mosque for good measure. There is something to be said of the effect truly bad architecture has on a worshiper, but that's for another time. For now, prepare to laugh, cry, and simply be in awe that such eyesores actually exist. Nicholas G. Hahn III is Editor of RealClearReligion. Follow him on Twitter @NGHahn3.
