6-story Jesus statue in Ohio struck by lightning

• AP

A six-story-tall statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway was struck by lightning in a thunderstorm Monday night and burned to the ground, police said.

The "King of Kings" statue, one of southwest Ohio's most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati.

Pretty sure God doesn't like idolatry, wasn't that one of his commandments? You'd think a church would know that... LOL!

Either that or a 6 story tall statue in a thunderstorm is a natural place for lightning to arc and make a ground connection.

 God reminding us once again to quit bothering worshipping physical representations of His son while murdering women and children in far off lands.

It's an indicator He may be lifing His veil of protection from this land.

Past subjunctive prayers that "God Bless America" have turned into demands.  I don't think He views agressive demands placed on Him by His subjects highly.
