    Chuckle. Have you read the comments on youtube? Insurance claim denied: 'act of God'....

    I guess god doesn't like churches milking their supports for millions of dollars to build crap like that. Who knew?

    I'm sure Pat Robertson must have something to say about this. But thank god (no pun intended), that thing was hideous.

    Oh don't worry. They will rebuild. Hopefully they'll cover it with tiny mirrors so it SHINES. :D

    My favorite quotes from the Dayton Daily News:

    http://www.daytondailynews.com/news...fire-damages-estimated-at-700-000-762245.html

    Folks- maybe it's time to get a clue. Because you really scare me when you say things like this. Or maybe God really likes Larry Flint more? :)

    Hopefully they rebuild it as many people seemed to have enjoyed its existence.

    So, if the Hustler sign wasn't touched, and Jesus burned to the ground, that would leave 2 logical conclusions:

    1. God loves porn more than he loves his only son.
    2. Everything they've ever learned is bull****.

    I'm going with the latter

    Yep. That's for sure. Although I find number 1 more entertaining. :)

    It's possible. All the natural disasters seem to hit areas where people tend to be very religious. Has any major natural disaster hit Hollywood or Vegas? God loves porn, prostitutes and strippers :D

    Any truth to the rumor that the insurance claim was denied due to an Act of God.

    It does look like a giant lightning rod with all the Styrofoam gone.

    Oh- and the flooding in New Orleans completely missed the French Quarter too. ;)

    Let's hope.

    Ya think? Probably wasn't the best construction idea in the first place. :)

    Maybe this is all part of the plan, and the statue will appear to believers on numerous unverifiable occasions before it finally ascends into heaven :p

    It'll be like Our Lady of the Underpass. :)

    Still waiting for Pat Robertson to tell us all what it means.

    I thought "Touchdown Jesus" was the one visible from inside Notre Dame Stadium.

    Oh- I'm sure it's because they haven't killed enough homos and saved enough babies. :) And here I thought it was gonna be a rough day. ;)

    Butter Jesus was melted for your sins. This is a sign for all true believers to wear pieces of toast with the Virgin Mary's face burnt into them, hung from rosaries of strung popcorn.

    When the faithful have thus separated themselves, all will be clarified.
