Despite objections from the Marine Corps, county supervisors Tuesday voted to allow a church to hold services in a giant tent under a takeoff path, while a permanent church is built there. In return, church officials pledged not to complain to the Marines or the county about the roar from jets overhead. The unanimous vote by the County Board of Supervisors to allow services in a 2,500-square-foot tent was the second round the Marine Corps lost to the church.

It was just a large piece of canvas, leaky during rainstorms and not very good at keeping out the morning chill. But for 10,000 worshipers of the Saddleback Valley Community Church, their tent was a spiritual home for almost three years. Choir member Bill Cowdrey remembers watching a particularly nasty cloudburst blow freezing rain on several rows of the congregation last Easter.

The survey ranking Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa as the nation's third-largest Protestant church by Sunday attendance also found that 25 of the top 100 are in California, a state better known for secular pleasures than old-time religion. The California churches, 20 of which are in Southern California, generally teach a literal Bible, are theologically and socially conservative, focus on the family, have a dynamic pastor and are not aligned with a mainline denomination.

Authorities confirmed Friday that a mountain lion killed 35-year-old cyclist Mark Reynolds, whose body was found shortly after another cougar attack along a popular trail in the rugged Orange County foothills. It is the sixth fatal mauling of a human by a mountain lion in California and the first since 1994. Deputies said Thursday night that they shot and killed the 110-pound mountain lion responsible for the attacks, but on Friday they weren't taking any chances.

I can't believe God would prefer that man should build a massive edifice in His name, such as is proposed, to the pacific, natural beauty that He created.
