Jesus burns to the ground.

I kid you not — back in 2004, some church near Middletown (my hometown) decided to put a GINORMOUS statue of Jesus in front of it (pictures here:; they’re right off I-75, and yes, it was very visible from the highway. Our own version of San Francisco’s Stupid Cupid thing, you might say.

It was struck by lightning last night, and, yup, burned to the ground in a huge fireball.

A bit of snarky irony buried in the article: a nearby “Hustler Hollywood” billboard was untouched.
