    Jesus Burnt to the Ground

    MONROE, Ohio (AP) - A six-story-tall statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway was struck by lightning in a thunderstorm Monday night and burned to the ground, police said.

    The "King of Kings" statue, one of southwest Ohio's most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati.

    The lightning strike set the statue ablaze around 11:15 p.m., Monroe police dispatchers said.

    The sculpture, 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way the arms were raised, similar to a referee signaling a touchdown.

          The erection of this thing was very political. The lightning strike was also controversial.

          The fuckin assholes are those who do not see(comprehend).

                The money they're going to spend on rebuilding it is atrocious. Isn't making statues against one of the big ten?

                  May I suggest putting two insulated lightning rods in each hand in the shape of crucifixes if they plan to rebuild? If you want to look at this as political than so be it; its all about perception. No different if say for example the lesbians house down the street was struck by lightning and burnt to the ground.....some might say it was a message....maybe ?

                    I thought Jesus was a magical thing or something

                      Jesus has always had a rough time on Earth. But he still loves you.

                          About 15 years ago I was sitting in a dive bar slumming and drinking Bloody Mary's and BSing with people at the bar. It was a gloomy afternoon, perfect for hiding from the world. (yes, it was a sordid point of my life)
                          Suddenly there was a loudest CRACK. A bolt of lightening had struck the steeple of the church across the street, causing considerable damage.
                          If lightening was going to strike anyone for some religious reason I would have thought it would have been all of us sinners in the notorious Flame Tavern!

                              Sounds like Skyco is taking after Don Corleone:




                              VITO CORLEONE (holding up his hand to interrupt Barzini)

                              "...But I'm a superstitious man -- and
                              if some unlucky accident should befall him -- if he's struck by a bolt of
                              lightning -- then I'm going to blame some of the people in this room. And that, I do not forgive."



                              Don't recall the Don claiming that it was politics, however...
