What Is This Weird Church-Looking Thing on Melrose?

We got a tip today that there was a weird red structure that looks like a church at the corner of Melrose and Gardner, right in the heart of the busy Melrose shopping district.
Judging by tweets and Instagrams, the church, which says “NONE OF THIS IS REAL” on the side, materialized yesterday. It looks to be the work of veteran street artists Teacher and Chod, whose names are on the front.
Is it a statement about religion? Or just a criticism of the meat at Johnny Rockets across the street? We pray to someday get an answer.
Thanks to tweeter @andrea_zak for the tip.
