Touchdown Jesus is no longer around.
But why did the statue burn down?
SFGate columnist Mark Morford has compiled a number of popular reasons God torched Jesus.
These are just a few of the hilarious bits:
4] Oh sure, make all the jokes you want. “God struck down his only son. Again!” Or, “I guess God really hates Styrofoam!” Here’s what the fundamentalists think: “It’s genius! Don’t you see God’s master plan here? He started a holy conversation! We’re all talking about Jesus again! He brought Christ back into the public consciousness! Yay, God!”
Sure, you could argue it’s a form of the Savior that’s just a wee bit tacky, insulting and childish, not to mention a laughable piece of “artwork” you wouldn’t wish upon a blind quadriplegic goat herder. Whatevs. As the Pharisees used to say: “No such thing as bad press, yo.”
5] He is resin.
8] Two more: Insurance money. God has been eyeing the new Cadillac CTS Coupe. In this economy? You do what need to do.
17] Hey, all kids and parents argue.
18] The revenge of science.
