GARDEN GROVE – Robert H. Schuller, founder of the Crystal Cathedral, said Wednesday that he strongly disapproves of an anti-gay covenant his own church administrators asked choir members to sign, stating that it goes against the principles of tolerance, acceptance and positive thinking on which he built his 50-year-old ministry.

Schuller contacted the Register to say he did not know about the existence of such a covenant and would have personally never approved it.

“I have a reputation worldwide of being tolerant of all people and their views,” he said. “I’m too well-educated to criticize a certain religion or group of people for what they believe in. It’s called freedom.”

Phillip Johnson, the architect who constructed the cathedral's iconic glass sanctuary, was an openly gay man.
