Megachurches as Viewed by Non-Christians?

A San Francisco Chronicle opinion writer took aim in a column this week at megachurches. His comments are pointed, to say the least.
From what I read, this seems to be the modern megachurchly direction: minimize the dogma and melodrama and speaking in tongues, maximum the perkiness and nondenominationalism and piles of happy sanitized self-help schmaltz. In Jesus' name, naturally.

And that's the kinder part of the column… (Note, if you follow the link, that roughly the first half of the column is about the Catholic church - in less than glowing terms - and then he redirects his focus to conservative, evangelical megachurches.)
