AMU, Healy and "Oratories"

Isn't this problematic? [Edited for fairness and accuracy. Hat tip: Phlogizo]

UPDATE: In order that we not be misunderstood, I am reposting here a comment authored by Dagmar Doubledick. He seems to catch the point of this post. And explained it better than I could. Thanks, Dagmar.

He calls it an "oratory" right? That's a problem. (Perhaps he is just using common paralance.) He is opening it specifically for prayer, no? While admittedly one can pray anywhere, doesn't this create confusion as to whether the place has been approved as a place dedicated to public prayer?

An abundance of caution seems to be in order, whatever is done. AMU doesn't seem to be cautious.
