Big Butter Jesus Statue Melts or "I Can't Believe It's Not Sacrilegious"
"Big Butter Jesus" (coincidentally NOT actually made of butter, but rather styro-foam and fibreglass) was a statue constructed in 2004 for the Solid Rock Church of Monroe, Ohio. Though many residents complained it was an eyesore and a disgrace, the statue (also nicknamed "Touchdown Jesus") has stood the test of time.... BUT not the wrath of the Almighty. Last night, as a thunderstorm swept through the area, lightning bolts struck the statue, setting it ablaze!
Members of the church tried to save it, but nothing could be done. All that remains is the framework the artist used to construct the statue to begin with.
At the risk of being struck down by a bolt from the blue, I got to imagine the Lord's words said something to effect of "That's all I can stands, cuz I can't stands n'more!"
