I actually drove by this on my way up from spring break a couple of months ago. It's Touchdown Jesus, aka Big Butter Jesus aka I can't believe it's not Jesus. Here is what recently occured:
Is it just me or is the "After" Jesus just so much hotter?
Well folks, It looks like one of two things happened; 1) Jesus was caught with Yahweh's porn stash, and we all know the god of the OT is a vindictive pric (although isn't Jesus his own father) or 2) Zeus is sick of this Christianity BS and is finally standing up for himself....in which case....nice shot! I don't think I could pull that shit off from that high up in the air.
So what would you expect to be the reaction from our Christian friends (assuming you have any you militant bastards). Well, when I posted this on facebook one of the more common responses was; "Oh don't worry Eric, this is just testing our faith, they are going to build another one!" Wait what?...or que? for our spanish speaking friends (McCain please don't deport me). 99% of the time, when some kind of natural phenomenon happens to take anything else down or destroy it, Christians are the first people to say "It was a sign from god" or "god doesn't like what we are doing there" or "It's because we have fags in our nation" (that last one'd be Phelps...no, not the swimmer). How are you not taking this as a sign that your imaginary friend in the sky actually does read his own best selling book and doesn't like your false idols? Confirmation bias? We only see what approves of our narrative. In this case, to them, it appears to simply be that lightening struck the sculpture and that's that...you know, the rational explanation. Of course, had it been a statue of Darwin...oh man, watch out. We'd get an ear full. This would undoubtfully be the result of god's displeasure with Darwin and/or fags...or worse yet, a gay Darwin. Never mind that the proverbial Darwin statue was struck during a storm and the structure itself consists of long metal poles stretching toward the sky (don't think a Darwin sculpture would be reaching toward the sky though?). Nope, instead, in this instance they are saying that their faith is strong and they will be rebuilding as soon as they can (probably out of the same flammable shit because these tards don't know material science, let alone any science!). Not even blinking an eye....not looking for a supernatural explanation. Why can't they be this rational about other natural events?
