Holy Outrage! Construction Begins On New 51-Foot 'Touchdown Jesus' Statue!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Construction started Wednesday on a 51-foot-tall replacement for the famous `Touchdown Jesus` statue off Interstate 75 in Ohio.

The work on the new statue began at the Solid Rock church in Monroe nearly one year after the original statue, whose outstretched arms earned it its nickname, was struck by lightning and burned to the ground, WXIX-TV, Cincinnati, reported."

The original 51-foot-tall Touchdown Jesus statue was an affront to God, and the real Jesus. Jehovah took exception to the monstrosity and He hurled a bolt of lighting at it setting it on fire.

The pastor of Solid Rock church is basically saying my false idol is bigger than yours; I wouldn`t be surprised if the pastor tools around in a huge SUV. This colossal statue represents the excesses of evangelical churches, it`s all about building bigger and bigger megachurches.

When God destroyed the Tower of Babel, nobody was stupid enough to try to rebuild it. This loony minister is ignorant of the teachings of the Bible, the clown is engaging in the fool`s errand of building a new gigantic Jesus statue.

Pastor dude, you ought to be embarrassed that a freethinker is dropping some Biblical wisdom on your sorry a**.
