Not normally one to repost things I find on the interwebs without having something to add, but this is just… hilarious.
The large Jesus statue iconic to Interstate 75 in Monroe was destroyed following an apparent lightning strike during a thunderstorm.
Motorists were stopped along the highway and around the Monroe area to watch the 62-foot King of Kings statue burn.
Before you protest, I’m allowed to say it’s hilarious for three reasons.
1. It was hideous
2. It was a waste of a lot of money ($500k!)
3. No one was hurt
So we’ve learned that either there is no godly protection for “holy” sites and 60 foot statues made of steel and flammable materials are a bad idea or that god has taste and is willing to use his magic finger pointing powers for some exterior decorating.
P.S. If he comes back in three days, I’m going to be pissed if that means I miss the rest of the World Cup.
