The statue is also referred to as "Big Butter Jesus" and "the Kenny Rogers Jesus". It's just down the road from where I live, and believe me- if those folks have a lick of sense, they won't rebuild it.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals [URL= has offered to rebuild the King of Kings statue[/URL ] destroyed by fire last week at Solid Rock Church.

PETA proposes a statue depicting Jesus holding a lamb with the inscribed message: “Blessed Are the Merciful. Go Vegan” to replace the 62-foot statue that was struck by lightning and destroyed June 14.

Truth is always stranger than fiction.
