    My first thought as well.

    That's a shame really.

    I will bet anything they rebuild it, only it will probably be bigger, as they will probably get loads of donations. Maybe they will get the whole body this time, which was their initial plan.

    I heard this around 7:30 this morning; two minutes later I heard the first joke. I'm up to about 15 of them already.

    :rofl: That's quite ironic, isn't it?

    Btw, isn't it proof that there's no God? :p

    Now, now, no hasty assumptions.

    We have to see if it rises from the dead three days from now before we can make any conclusions.

    Bob and Tom (morning DJs) think God was aiming for Larry Flynt's Hustler Club down the road and missed.

    It could be proof that God exists and that He does not like tacky statues...

    Maybe God has a sense of humor.

    True, because God doesn't miss. :p

    Oh my gosh, I saw that thing for the first time last November. I'm a Christian, and IT SCARED ME.

    Who wants to bet it'll be rebuilt as quickly as possible?

    My Abrahamic Faith Tradition 3.0 says this is the correct answer. Also, down with the idols! :p

    My favorite "Touchdown Jesus" is on the Univ of Notre Dame campus.In the obvious field of vision of the football stadium...certainly not as....um...."rustic" as the lightning fodder, though.;)

    Exodus 20:4: "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth."

    That IS the Second Commandment, after all. :saint:

    Both of these.

    I have to admit, I laughed when I saw this on the Weather Channel this morning. My husband is now positive I'm headed to hell....there were doubts before this. ;)

    Does that mean that I have to get rid of my inflatable Tina Louise (Ginger, on Gilligan's Island) doll? http://ralphspubilliniclub.com/images/BIRTHDAY%2002-11-07.gif

    Wouldn't it be nice if they used all of those donations to help the needy?

    You're so funny. Don't you know the needy need an inspiring testament to divine benevolence and their rebuilding this will be a guiding light to all who pass by that heaven is your eternal reward.

    Plus if they rebuild it, we will still have something to take pictures of as we drive down I-75. :p

    And I was on I-75 just last Friday when I went to get the new pup. If I'd known the end was near I'd have driven further north for a pilgrimage. Alas.

    I thought that the needy would be helped by getting employment in the tchotchke shops that will exploit this thing (in either religious direction)

    I'm disappointed - I got all excited to check out the statue in the news article photographs and I thought it would be way tackier. I actually sort of like it - I hope they rebuild it.
