Finally, a good use for that ridiculous Jesus statue north of town

Yes folks, that is the Jesus statue that rises out of the man-made lake outside of the Solid Rock Church in Monroe. The statue is sixty-two feet of fiberglass and styrofoam on a metal frame, and overlooks a baptismal pool. Naturally, it is all up against the interstate. You can read more, and see more pictures, here. Some believe it has reduced highway deaths. Others, myself included, believe is scares children away from religion. It is truly hideous. Though I do like driving by it, rolling my eyes, and muttering "Jesus." I do that even if no one else is in the car.
