A Bolt From The Blue
The report of a six-story statue of Jesus destroyed by lightning has been getting a lot of attention. (It's in Monroe, Ohio--get out there and do some reporting, ColumbusGuy.) With arms outstretched, it was known as "Touchdown Jesus." Well, lightning does discriminate, and this is just the sort of target it would go for.
According to a church official, they plan to rebuild. I don't believe in signs, but do they? And if there ever was a sign, wouldn't this be it?
(Actually, according to certain reports, some locals see this as a need for the nation to return to its Christian roots. Why don't they see it as a direct sign that the particular members of this church have fallen short and need to change?)
