      'Touchdown Jesus' Struck by Lightning and Burned to the Ground

      'Touchdown Jesus' as it is called was struck by lightning last night and burned to the ground so fast that fire squads could not save any part of it. The styrofoam statue of Jesus' torso up with his arms outstretched like a referee calling 'Touchdown!' is merely a steel structure. This statue, with initial response from the church where the statue is located, will be recreated.

      The irony is priceless.

      God doesn't appreciate such blasphemy. It's a sign, people.

      Huh. Yeah, I seriously don't think God appreciates mockery of the sort.
      John 3:16

      For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

      I just heard about this...it's pretty hilarious. Touchdown Jesus should never have existed. Divine Providence.

      This thing was only about ten minutes away from my house btw...and so very ugly...I'm glad to see it gone. Hopefully they don't rebuild it into something even more ridiculous.

      All is well then, much is said in the text about the second comming--all of which contradicts so called orthodoxy. It is nice to see some pagan images leaving.

      I have done some checking, it seems as if no one is prepared for what must be, but entrenched in what they imagine should be.

      Crap. AquaNINA. Alright, that won't happen again for a while. Anyway, I might have the timing off, but I'm fairly close to there.

      Here is a better view of the aftermath and the fire itself.

      "Church officials say the statue will be rebuilt and they will go forward with their July 4 celebration in a makeshift manner."

      In respect to the World Cup, they should rebuild him like this:

      It seems pretty obvious that this is a bad idea. I mean, is it not written...

      Good point. I'll change that.

      This was obviously the work of Zeus, the Sky-God and Lord of Olympus. For too long, mankind has worshipped the Semitic pagan gods, now we shall feel his wrath.

      Is that lion sitting across his lap, or was the artist demonstrating to us that Zeus's junk was a lion?

      I think it's part of the chair, there's one on the other side as well. Zeus' junk is probably made of lightning.

      On a side note, this story was posted on the garage door in my house. My older sister put this comment on it:

      Zeus has a great sense of humor... >:3

      More zaniness:

      Almost on cue, as it could be predicted, somebody saw the virgin mary in the charred remains.

      I thought toast was going a bit too far...

      It would suck if Rio's Jesus was destroyed though. I always like that statue.

      I kinda freaked at this, because I had driven by that statue four days before this incident, and commented on how cool it looked as a statue. My girlfriend and her friend said it was creepy. I'm guessing they wished this to happen?
