Statue of Liberation Through Christ
I've been catching up on some of my blogs tonight that I don't read on an every day basis.
So get ready for some fun posts...
A church in Memphis, Tenn. has constructed a 72-foot Statue of Liberation Through Christ, which is basically a Statue of Liberty with a cross instead of a torch in one hand and the 10 commandments in the other.
Are you serious?!
"[It's] a creative means of just really letting people know that God is the foundation of our nation," said World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church pastor Alton R. Williams.
Williams has also bought full page ads in a Memphis paper condemning homosexuality, lists "legalized abortion, a lack of prayer in schools and the country's 'promotion of expressions of New Age, Wicca, secularism and humanism,'" among the nation's ills, and claimed Hurricane Katrina was punishment for the sins of New Orleans.
It keeps getting better and better doesn't it?
Kevin Hendicks says, "Just add it to the other religious monuments, including 'touchdown' Jesus and the 99-foot eyesore."
