There isn't a church anywhere in Vice City.

  • In the beta, Pastor Richards was supposed to play a larger role (he only appears briefly in The Party, and also as a guest on Pressing Issues). His character was largely removed because his voice actor, David Green, passed away during development.

  • On Chatterbox on LCFR, a caller tells Lazlow that he is campaigning to replace the Liberty Cathedral's garden with "a post-modern square building with Internet terminals and foosball tables to worship at".
