When Lightning Strikes, Atheists Run

with one comment

A lot has been made recently about a statue of Jesus that was struck by lightning.  The giants statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway has been struck by lightning and burned to the ground.  The King of Kings statue was six stories tall and one of the most familiar landmarks in South-West Ohio since it was erected in 2004 outside a church just north of Cincinnati.

I’ve heard several Christians talk about this being caused by graven images because somewhere in the Bible it says we shouldn’t make statues of Jesus.  That seems kind of Moslem to me personally.  I mean if we can’t name an Airport or an expressway after the almighty like we can for Ronald Reagan, the least we can do is build a statue in his honor.  What it seems these Christians leave off is where that lightning would have struck if that statue wasn’t there.  I am willing to bet that the statue threw itself in front of a church bus or sacrificed itself in some way saving commuters on the highway.  I’m sure the church will rebuild an equally stirring, but tasteful poster

  1. I think the Lord was offended by people coming to the church just to point and gawk at the freakishly large Jesus. Not unlike a freak show. You can’t expect the bearded lady to not be offended when she is stared and pointed at. My suggestion is that they replace it with a smaller less sensational religious icon, like a golden calf.
