    I can't believe that no one else has brought this up especially since it made national news.

    On Monday night, the "King of Kings" statue outside of the Solid Rock Church in Monroe, OH was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. The 62 foot statue was visible from I-75 and was also known as "Touchdown Jesus" or "Butter Jesus".

    I was amused to read somewhere that the nearby Hustler store went unscathed. Perhaps God's aim is off. ;)

    The irony of it all is pretty hilarious.

    BBJ is a 15 minute drive from my house. It has been a joke since it was first built. The church could better use their money to help people in need in the community not build a "graven image" as so many around here put it. I believe there is a verse in the Bible about not doing that.

    I heard about it last night. Apparently one headline about it read, "Jesus Statue Destroyed by Act of God."

    And my husband keeps singing the 'Plastic Jesus' song. Here's a version on YouTube:

    My mom knew a couple days ago. I woke up to her listening to Big Butter Jesus.

    Big Butter Jesus...
    Country Fresh Jesus...
    Can't believe it's not Jesus...

    I think there is, I just can't find it on google and I don't want to search fifty million verses right now, I'll keep looking in case anyone wants to know what it says.



    EDIT1: Google is being a pain, I'll try again later and update this post if you want.

    You are thinking of the second of the ten commandments in the book of Exodus:

    Exod.20
    [4] "You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
