    Wood, I don`t know. If U build a statue of paper fibers and glue, with a massive, welded steel frame inside, it will be kinda conductive...

    I am from Dayton Ohio and I have had to drive by that statue for years. It was/is an abomination. The best part of this story is that a HUGE Hustler store is right across the highway from it that "God" apparently didn`t feel like burning down first.

It was God who destroyed it, AWESOME!!! Really shows just how far denominational churches have twisted the bible to erect something like that to begin with.

    So many things going through my mind right now:

    1) Is that woman`s name "Gifty"?
    2) Why is she so upset?
    3) The bible actually says "I the LORD thy God am a jealous God". Doesn`t that seem just a tad... petty? You wouldn`t think that God had anything to be insecure about.
    4) If God is planning on zapping every Jesus statue out of existence, he needs to get real busy.

    This is literally five minutes away from my house. He was referred to as "Touchdown Jesus" or "Big Butter Jesus". They claim they`re going to rebuild, but the community (Greater Cincinnati area) is petitioning for them not to. There is a huge percentage of the population that want it gone for good.

    This is what`s wrong with people who follow religion with so much devotion but who are lacking in rationality.

    First off the church didnt burn down, which should be the most important thing here. Hurr durr.

    Second, the lady Gifty, and I`m sure others in the congregation are obviously lacking in basic rationality. Instead, the think of everything with such religious fervor that they take it very personally when a drating sculpture at their church burns down.

    "I just know something is not right right now. We just have to go on our faith and ask God, because this cannot be a coincidence!"
    -Gifty

    What a gem.

    lol i love seeing this - they broke gods 2 commandment - You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    Justice served by god himself.

    It would be really sweet if they managed to convince themselves that this was punishment for damaging the environment. Maybe that would slap some environmental sense into us so that we never have to deal with spills like this again...
