Someone emailed me a link to an article about the Great Cross Alliance, a group that is seeking to build a massive structure in the Nevada desert that will hold the remains of dead Christians, with the whole thing in the shape of a cross. A really, really big cross — 3000 feet long, 2000 feet wide and 200 feet tall.
The Great Cross Alliance is dedicated to constructing the largest, longest-lasting Christian monument in the world. It will be built of columbarium and mausoleum vaults that are available for purchase for you and your family. The Great Cross will be supported by a world-wide community who choose to become part of this beautiful vision dedicated to Jesus Christ…
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The project must reach a critical level of funding before construction can begin. This level is set at the sale of 400 spaces. If this level is not reached by April 1, 2014 the project will be cancelled. If this happens, all spaces purchased and all donations of over $100 will be refunded. If the 400 space mark is reached, purchasers will be notified of the date that remains can be accepted.
Oh come on, you’re in Nevada. Just put a casino in it. You can have the dealers dressed in robes and sandals like Jesus and the disciples, or like priests and nuns. You’ll have all the funding you need in no time.
