Big Butter Jesus is Toast

North of Cincinnati, Ohio is (was) a big $250k statue of  “Jesus” at the Solid Rock Church (incidentally insured for $700k).  The locally famous Jesus was dubbed “Butter Jesus” by comedian Heywood Banks, because of it’s off yellow color, in a song he wrote made famous on the Bob and Tom radio show that originates from Indianapolis, Indiana.

In June, 2011, however, and “Act of God” in the form of a lightning bolt struck the head of “butter Jesus” and he burst into flame, and burned completely to the ground.

Somehow, in relation to this blog about Big Coal, maybe there is a lesson to be learned here somewhere ? You’d think that $250k would be better spent on feeding the homeless or some charitable contribution to society. What would Jesus do with that money?
