Lakewood in Houston is really big and attracts people from all over America. When my mom saw it she was acting like a little kid being so amazed by and wanting to go there so bad.

I know DE has the first African American Episcopal Church in the country, and im sure that gets a big audience.

of coarse DE are always argued if they are south or north, but idk any other church in the south but that one

That place scares me. Joel always has this weird grin on his face and Victoria looks like Barbie.

Why can't people go to church without all of the tacky hoopla? Can't religion be a solemn, sacred experience anymore?

So if Catholics are now subsribing to this tacky brand of religion, I can only imagine how bad it's gotten in those new no holds barred "mega-churches". If there's a God, I guarantee he's not into this schocky cheeseball garbage! Mozart and Bach used to pen symphonies in His honor. The greatest artists and architects in the world made beautiful works in His name. Now He gets dopey theme parks and cheesy no-talent rock bands playing bland, unoriginal music to a bunch of yahoos with their arms in the air. Do you really think God would be pleased with this low culture garbage?

Two of the three biggest are in Houston. Every Sunday morning, 70,000 Houstonians are congregated in two churches.

Here is a site with a list of all Megachurches in the USA. The cutoff point seems to be about 2,000 people at an average service. The nunber in each state is shown beloe (I estimated, instad of counting them laboriously)

Megachurch Search Results - Hartford Institute for Religion Research

California 185
Texas 180
Florida 90
Georgia 75
Tennesssee 50
Ohio 50
Illinois 50
Maryland 40
North Carolina 40
Oklahoma 40

Why can't people go to pride parades without looking all tacky and weird??? Do you think people like their children being exposed to drag queens and homosexuals making out??? This is how ignorant you sound and exactly why I think so called liberals are hypocrites and close-minded.
