Touchdown Jesus, the day before

Published June 20th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

I was at the Touchdown Jesus the DAY BEFORE it was destroyed.  I took some pics.  When I looked at this one, I was amazed by what I saw in the clouds.

    I always heard it called “big butter Jesus” too. Mmmm, butter!

    There’s a lesson to be learned here. Let’s see, possible lessons to learn here: 1) do not build graven idols in direct contravention of your God’s commands, or 2) do not build a tall, highly flammable styrofoam-based structure with a metal core right next to a lake unless you want it to be hit by lightning and burn to a crisp.

    Either way, they had it coming. There’s a video of it burning too–I hope the people filming it were upwind–that smoke looks toxic!

    #6 TL: If it is any comfort to your friend I would say that the statue falls within the “graven images” category and therefore should not be mourned. Mind you, I have always wondered why the Catholics plaster their houses and churches with said images anyway. It seems in direct contradiction to what I understand to be item 1 in the Catholic version of the ten commandments (ie. ANY graven images)

    “Graven” in this instance, relates to the root word “gravy”; any tomato based pasta sauce containing meat…

    Somebody’s been doing photo tricks.

    Everybody knows clouds look like Jesus.(If you stare at them long enough.)

        @ drained and washed clean and TL
        someone needs to explain the concept of SARCASM :P point being if you’re looking for signs of divinity you will find them, humans are pattern finding creatures who will happily ignore a few thousand clouds that don’t look like they want them to but find meaning in one that does.

    Now that I think of it, the fire was there to cook the pasta and meatballs! How could we have missed that!

    Keith: I don’t think she’s upset at all. She was excited to have one of the last pictures of the thing.

    Edwords: You sound really pathetic. But then that’s what religious people do when they feel the least bit threatened. It’s all about insecurity.

    Even the deity of that other “religion” must lift his hands in supplication to our Great FSM, Praise Be!
