Unites States of Jesusistan

Holy. Crap. Hat tip to Nicole for this:
"A Memphis church on Tuesday will unveil a 72-foot-tall replica of the Statue of Liberty, except this Lady Liberty holds a cross instead of a torch.

World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church is planning to unveil the statue that mixes Christian and American themes during a special ceremony at its 12,000-member church.

The Statue of Liberation also replaces the famous inscription with the lines 'Give me your tired, your poor ... ' with Roman numerals representing the Ten Commandments.

A tear falling from her right eye represents her concern for America, church pastor Apostle Alton R. Williams said."

This little monstrosity costs $260,000. No word on how much it costs to either your eyes, or your sense of irony. Hey, is that Jim Caviezel up there?

Imagine how many hungry people they could have fed with that money.

I had that same thought. One of the other blogs I read said that the price tag was possibly even higher.
