New church in Frisco, Texas. Faithful ask that it "look like a church"

One of our readers sent in a link to a presentation for a new Catholic church in Frisco, Texas:St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.

The church is designed in a Romanesque style. What is interesting are the comments from people who asked that "it look like a church" and the overwhelming percentage of people in favour of the design. Not that popular opinion drives these matters, or ought, given the catechetical role of a church building, but it certainly is also demonstrative of the thirst for those forms which grew up in a time with a greater sense of the transcendent.
