Touchdown Jesus

There is a statue — or monstrosity — of Jesus in front of the Solid Rock Church in Monroe, Ohio.  It was erected in 2004 at a cost of $250,000.  It depicts some Northern European guy who, I guess, is supposed to be Jesus rising out of a pool of water with, of course, his […]

OK, you have read the article.  Without pushing any of […]
