Harfold State College will add a new art history/religion course to its offerings in the fall semster. Entitled "Ugly Churches only Jesus could love," the course is designed to focus on sorry attempts to please the Lord by building something modern.
Art history professor William S. Daniels (B.A. Harfold State College '02) spent much of the previous summer taking photos of some pretty sad looking churches. "I really felt that someone had to ask the question: 'Who besides Jesus likes, let alone, loves these churches?'
"My priest told us once that a church could be your living room, your backyard. It all depends on where you want to talk to Jesus. But let's face it. On a given Sunday morning, is Jesus gonna listen to someone's prayer emanating from a Gothic cathedral in Europe or one of these sorry-ass structures? That's the type of questions will ask in this course."
News of the new course spread slowly in the college's cafeteria with most deciding it wasn't worth telling the person next to them.
