Butter Jesus Burns! from Penny


Oh No!! I got a text from Amber today that the Butter Jesus statue in Ohio burned last night. It was struck by lightning. Hmmm. It was the scariest looking thing. We watched it being built on our several trips down to Cincinnati while Rachael was working on her master's at CCM. At first we couldn't figure out what it was going to be and then when it was complete, we couldn't figure out why it came to be. A kind of creepy HUGE yellow Jesus stuck in the ground. Haywood Banks sings a hilarious song about the Butter Jesus.

  1. What's crazy is that the church plans on rebuilding another Jesus/conductor of electricity. It seems to me like the money could be better spent helping the community. P.S. Welcome to the blogosphere!
