Maybe it's the concrete but it is a very grim-looking structure. Hopefully they will paint the concrete some brighter colors? As of now it looks like a tank built by Daleks.
I actually like it that way. Not sure if it looks like a church yet but it's IMO more interesting than original Hagia Sophia.

This is a visualisation. So it will be probably white and green or white and gold:

That's something like I was expecting. Looks a lot more like a church.

I like it. I'm still a little skeptical of the concrete... even when painted, concrete depresses me for some reason. Maybe that's just my problem.

You can make beautiful things from concrete. See Brutalism Appreciation Society on FB for examples.

Yeah, I've seen the allegedly beautiful brutalist stuff.
Maybe I'm weird but I actually find many examples beautiful. I should sometimes make some trip to Eastern Europe just to see horrible Soviet architecture.

My university's having funding problems, so they closed the refectory, so some Communists and Anarchists occupied the building and are cooking the food themselves for students. They let me in after it was already closed, so I ate only with the occupiers. It was a bit strange, I feared someone would abuse me after seeing me pray, but it was OK.

Wow. Reminds me of this story from Greece last year.

In my experience though, anarchists are terrible cooks.

My experience too! It would be funny if we are both thinking of the same occasion.

If you've been to one horrible anarchist vegan potluck you've been to them all. It's kind of like the eucharist except with seitan and overwhelming body odors.

I'm not drunk, yet I am drunk. I am drunk.
A little bit. I drunk a little bit of a very fine Chelada. About 40 ounces. Not a ridiculous amount, especially considering the very low Abv. But dollar for dollar? No.

I drove by a byzantine catholic sect today.  I had no overwhelming desire to see what was inside.

No matter that she's a modalist Pentecostal. The magical ecumenism of teh gay covers all doctrinal quibbles.

Lord if it is in your will, please be merciful towards our country and guide Kim Davis towards monastic tonsure in Romania.
