God Destroys Statue of Jesus -- with Fire
The statue to your left in Monroe, Ohio -- affectionately nicknamed "Touchdown Jesus" -- was struck by lightning and reduced to ashes on Monday, according to reports and YouTube videos.
The so-called "King of Kings" statue was 62 feet tall and was completed in 2004 at a cost of $250,000, according to reports.
Why did God choose to destroy His son's image? Maybe because it was fugly, maybe because of the Notre Dame football connotations, maybe because Jesus shaved his beard. Who can say? Ministers, that's who. We'd love to be at the Solid Rock Church -- the congregation who built the big baby Jesus -- this Sunday to hear the holy Joes explain away this one.
