    Touchdown Jesus On Fire, Ohio Statue Destroyed By Lightning
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/15/king-of-kings-ohio-jesus_n_612360.html

    Isn't it ironic? don't ya think?

    articleA 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.



    Just as a side topic, If Christians believe Jesus is GOD, why do they may graven images of him when it is forbidden in the ten commandments? icon_question.gif

    Well, if hurricane Katrina was God's judgement against New Orleans' acceptance of gays, as we have been told, and soldiers being killed in Iraq & Afghanistan is likewise God's punishment for the US permitting gays to live, then:

    What should we make of this? God's own image struck by lighting? Surely God did this Himself, as undoubtedly He brought a hurricane to New Orleans, and as He kills US soldiers serving in Iraq and elsewhere, to show His displeasure with gays.

    Yes, believing what others preach, I must believe that the destruction by lighting of "Goalpost Jesus" was a divine judgement. God disapproved, and so Jesus was smitten. Do you think otherwise?

    Say, you know perhaps that big ol' Jesus in the water was reaching up his arms as in , "God get me outta here away from these haters!"

    I think this was actually just a warning from God that if Notre Dame joins the Big 10... the same could happen in South Bend.

    Ya know, it's all about the money.....)

    Its in the Jewish 10 commanments not to build idols

    Christianity is a syncretistic religion incorporating pagan rituals and beliefs, with eastern-based philosophies, and the Jewish Torach

    Yeah, "Drowning Jesus" could be as good a nickname for that monstrosity as "Touchdown Jesus." Or maybe to put it in a more positive light, "Esther Williams Jesus"?

    (That for our older members, and those into movie trivia) icon_wink.gif
