King of Kings Statue Is No More

Forsaken… again!

We all know the one and only Touchdown Jesus is at Notre Dame, you guys. Nice try though. God strikes down the Ohio version… the video:

More on the statue and the horsetrader who built it:

The sculpture, 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way his arms were raised, as though reaching out to catch a football. It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained early Tuesday.

The fire spread from the statue to an adjacent amphitheater but was confined to the attic area, and no one was injured, police Chief Mark Neu said. The fire department would release a monetary damage estimate Tuesday, he said.

Travelers on Interstate 75 often were startled to come upon the huge statue by the roadside, but many said America needs more symbols like it. So many people stopped at the church campus that church officials had to build a walkway to accommodate them.

The 4,000-member, nondenominational church was founded by former horse trader Lawrence Bishop and his wife. Bishop said in 2004 he was trying to help people, not impress them, with the statue. He said his wife proposed the Jesus figure as a beacon of hope and salvation and they spent about $250,000 to finance it.

And what I meant by saying that I don’t listen to pop music regularly is the fact that I’m not jaded or exposed to the constant oversaturation, so when does do something new, it always sticks out. However, I do live in a college community so I’m exposed to what’s new, whether I want to listen to it or not.

My goal is to be more accepting and positive about my body- I quit smoking over a year ago and gained some weight, but I know that I am so much healthier now than I was as a smoker… even if I am a little rounder

Thank you Ari for showing us these wonderful women; I love this elegant woman's beautiful use of the scarf under her hat; very becoming and most practical. She has inspired me to do the same.
