Open thread – this is f*cked
This monstrosity, called the “Statue of Liberation,” is being erected in front of the 12,000-member World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church at Winchester and Kirby Parkway in Memphis. A cross AND the Big Ten in her arms. Inscribed on the crown is “Jehovah.”
World Overcomers Outreach spent $260K on this thing. Apostle Alton R. Williams said the seven spikes in the original’s crown (which represent the seven seas of the world) now signify the seven redemptive names of Christ:
“People don’t talk about Christ anymore and our morals are gone…People cannot drive by our statue without thinking about their relationship with God.”
Q of the Day: Does this “Christian” art beat Ohio’s Touchdown Jesus?
The Jesus statue in Monroe, Ohio, is 62 feet tall and weighs eight tons.
