People have buildings for anything they care about. I always roll my eyes about people who ‘don’t believe in organized religion.’ They believe in organized retail, organized employment and organized sports, and if they get sick they very much believe in organized medicine, but worshiping The Lord God should be half-arsed amateur hour.
Obviously such a building is ‘made for man’ and isn’t literally a house that God needs to live in, but anytime you treat something important like it’s not important, you pick your own pocket.
