|The statue before the fire|
The real Jesus can conquer all, but the famous Jesus statue on I-75 in Monroe … not quite as infallible.
A lighting strike late Monday night caused the statue to catch fire, and it was quickly destroyed. Here’s some friendly advice to the Solid Rock Church: next time you construct a statue of the Son of God, don’t use a lot of styrofoam. It burns fast.
It would be easy to dismiss this as a freak lightning strike, but could it mean something more? To a lot of people the statue was a punchline – the so-called touchdown Jesus … big butter Jesus … and many other names, not to mention all the idiots who did this.
Can we get some input from JP?
