Perhaps you heard that a 62-foot-tall and 40-foot-wide statue of "Touchdown Jesus" was struck by lightning and burned to the ground on Tuesday, leaving only a blackened steel skeleton and chunks of smoldering foam.

The church has announced plans to rebuild a bigger, better, fireproof Jesus statue by year's end. Um, folks, weren't you listening the first time? Now you're really asking for it.

Let me point you to a related story:

In 2003, actor Jim "Torture-Porn Jesus" Caviezel was struck by lightning - TWICE - during the filming of Mel Gibson's film, The Passion of the Christ. My favorite quote, from producer Steve McEveety: "I'm about 100 feet away from them when I glance over and see smoke coming out of Caviezel's ears."

Let this be a lesson, idolaters! The Big Guy is watching!

In other news, early this morning I sent off the finished, edited, outta-my-hands copy of my novel, Transcendence, to my publisher, [livejournal.com profile] ericreynolds of Hadley Rille Books.

And he wants you to stop putting him in poses that make him look like a schmuck. He'd prefer something closer to the body-builder "Bolt Pose" next time.

You mean, smallified the cheezy Lightning Gawd? (Also corrected a spelling or two. Alas, unlike FB, with LJ there is no final version.)

Its all about reading omens:

Hurricane smacks into Louisiana: God's upset there are gays in America.

US attacked by terrorists: God's upset there are gays in America.

Lightning strikes big-ass Jesus statue: God's ego wasn't assuaged, he wants bigger-ass Jesus statue.

It all makes sense...

Hahahahaha! You slay me!

(Of course, plenty of loonie-birds out there believe these things, which sorta dulls the laughter...)

If the same thing happens to the Creation Museum, I will seriously consider converting back to Christianity.

Also, congratulations!

Imagine: flaming dinos.

Asteroid strikes Gulf of Mexico, causing extinction of many species: God's upset there are too many flamboyantly gay dinosaurs.
