Darkening bolt

Six-story "King of Kings" roadside Jesus/touchdown Jesus was struck by lightning and burned to the ground, leaving "only a blackened steel skeleton and pieces of foam that were scooped up by curious onlookers Tuesday."

"It will be back, but this time we are going to try for something fireproof," she said. 

Burn, baby, burn.

I really hated that thing with a passion. I used to call it "Big Zombie Jesus" because it looked like he was pulling himself out of a grave. When you looked at it, you couldn't help but think that it had to be some kind of sarcastic joke or caricature of clownish evangelical fundamentalism, but it was dead serious. The news of its burning made my month - I only wish I had been there to see it go down.

Evangelism, like fascism, doesn't seem to get its own jokes. And the burning of their edifices make me equally happy.
