    Touchdown Jesus destroyed by lightning

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010...tue-burns-down

    Can you call that an act of God? The insurance company won't be paying up, that's for sure.

    Wow.

    Bishop said the statue would be rebuilt. "It will be back, but this time we are going to try for something fireproof."
    Lol.

    I've seen this before. It's called "Touchdown Jesus"? Is that supposed to mean something?

    ^Naw. People call it that 'cause he looks like he's calling a touchdown.
    But, yeah, it's hilarious. A lot of people didn't like it and are glad to see it go. But that's what you get when you make your statue out of STYROFOAM.

    Styrofoam is flammable? Shit.

    When is Fallwell or whoever going to blame this act of God on sports? It's clearly a message that God hates football.

    Man, and I thought the critique section of this site was extreme...

    Well, they should take the hint that God doesn't like cheap, tacky-ass statues of his Son....
