The Rev. Robert H. Schuller has been ousted from the board of directors at the Crystal Cathedral, the Orange County megachurch he built into a televised empire after getting his start preaching at a drive-in theater, his son said Sunday night. Schuller, 84, stepped down from the pulpit five years ago and had long ago ceded day-to-day control of the Garden Grove ministry, largely to his children and other relatives. There were conflicting reports about precisely what had taken place between Schuller and the board members.

Re Medfly spraying: Obviously the Rev. Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove said "let us pray" rather than "let us spray." RUE SMITH Orange

Iwas 7 or 8 years old, reading my way through my kiddie encyclopedias, when I infuriated my Sunday school teacher by suggesting that the miraculous parting of the Red Sea was simply low tide. At that age, Sheila Schuller was working for her father's fledgling church. On Sunday mornings, she thumbtacked the Sunday school lessons to the wooden picnic tables at the Garden Grove drive-in theater where the Rev. Robert H. Schuller preached sermons from atop the snack stand. Today, half a century later, Sheila Schuller Coleman and her dad share the pulpit at the Crystal Cathedral, heart of a vast faith empire that he founded.

I do not know what really happened between the Rev. Robert Schuller and the male flight attendant aboard that plane. I was not there. Let us leave the investigation to the FBI and other authorities. However, I am disturbed by the statement of Schuller that he has "not violated any of the Ten Commandments" ("Alleged Scuffle Involving Rev. Schuller Investigated," July 2). I just hope he has not missed reading Romans 3:23 in his Bible. This verse says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

Re the Crystal Cathedral's plans to add a $5.5-million stainless steel spire because the Rev. Robert Schuller "always felt that all great cathedrals have spires": First, I'd like to refer him to Matthew 6: "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are, for they love to pray in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth . . . but in heaven . . . for there will be...

It must have been a miracle! I know that the Rev. Robert Schuller is in good physical shape, but in a twist stranger than fiction, it seems that he is comparatively stronger and more amazing than Evander Holyfield. According to The Times' article July 2, it's been alleged that the renowned 70-year-old minister "pushed" and "injured" a 35-year-old male flight attendant. This is a remarkable feat for the congenial creator of the Crystal Cathedral. The attendant remains anonymous while his charges against Schuller are publicized.

Re "Church's Spire and Meaning of Religion" (Opinion Page, Sept. 24): So now we know what the affluent Christians of Orange County do with their money. Like S. Manning and Ralph Jones, I too was outraged to read that the Rev. Robert Schuller has amassed $5.5 million in donations for construction of a 233-foot stainless steel spire, estimated to cost in excess of $7.7 million. It appears that Schuller, sitting aloft in his Crystal Cathedral, is so full of himself that he has lost sight of the thousands of needy and homeless in Orange County.

It was most encouraging to see some fresh coverage on such a controversial issue as our "war on drugs" (Dana Parsons' column, "Conscientious Objectors Protest the War Against Drugs," Jan. 29). Equally encouraging was to learn that Judge James P. Gray has maintained his convictions and continues to speak out for major changes in the way we view this debilitating social issue. William F. Buckley Jr.'s continued endorsement also provides room for optimism. However, a troubling and persistent observation which comes to my mind whenever this topic is resurrected relates to the political realities that compel influential people like the Rev. Robert Schuller to waffle overnight in their opinions regarding decriminalization.

Re " 'Possibility Center' Now an O.C. Reality," May 17: Am I the only person who finds it ironic that the Rev. Robert Schuller, who appears to live quite well from the contributions of countless thousands of people, refers to his former neighbors by saying "None of them were immune to greed"? With millions of people worldwide suffering from various afflictions and children going to bed each night accompanied by the pangs of hunger, Schuller has the audacity to accuse the working-class people he wanted to move from their family homes of being greedy.

Legendary pinup queen Bettie Page was remembered at a private memorial service Tuesday as a taboo-breaking model who later gave it all up to become a devout Christian -- only to reenter the public eye as a sexy trendsetter. "So it is only fitting that her final resting place be here, not far from Marilyn Monroe's final resting place," said Mark Roesler, chairman of Indianapolis-based CMG Worldwide, which markets Page's image, during the rite held at the Pierce Bros.

The schism between the Rev. Robert H. Schuller and his son at Orange County's Crystal Cathedral arose over a disagreement about broadening the church's long-running television show, "Hour of Power," beyond a single personality -- a move opposed by the younger Schuller, pastors involved in the matter said Sunday. The elder Schuller announced Saturday that he was removing his son, the Rev. Robert A. Schuller, as the show's only preacher three years after turning the program over to him.

The Rev. Robert H. Schuller, whose television ministry has long been symbolized by Garden Grove's towering Crystal Cathedral, will unveil his latest monument this weekend: the $40-million International Center for Possibility Thinking, designed by Getty Center architect Richard Meier. It took 13 years and the sweat of 183,000 workers to build King Solomon's temple in Jerusalem.

Crystal Cathedral founder Robert H. Schuller initially courted the secular world in 1955 by starting his church in a drive-in movie theater. Now, the reverend's spreading the word through a less beloved American tradition: telemarketing. Over the past few months, the recorded voice of Schuller has been heard in hundreds of thousands of Southern California homes.
