a worthy gods selective judgement

This monumental six story $700,000 creation at the Solid Rock Church in Monroe Ohio:

Was destroyed by a lightning strike last night:

This photo was taken by Tiffani West-May, of Fairborn, who was on  her way home from Cincinnati on Monday June 14, 2010.  The photo was  shot at 11:20 p.m. The large Jesus statue, iconic to I-75, was destroyed  following an apparent lightning strike during a thunderstorm late  Monday night.
Leaving only this:
No one was injured in the blaze and fire officials said they  expect to have a damage estimate later this morning.
The church itself was spared, suffering only smoke damage.
I remember seeing reports of this monstrosity  several years ago when it was erected, and thinking it could well be the ultimate high watermark for religious kitsch. Apparently, God agrees.
.
But, knowing the faithful, they’ll start work tomorrow on making another, and most likely an even bigger, one.
.
This is about the only reassuring news I’ve seen lately.
