Jesus Stops Runaway Truck in Ontario, Possibly Saving Lives in the Process

It turns out Jesus really does save. Just not for the reasons Christians keep telling us.

In Hamilton, Ontario, a truck that was unable to stop at an intersection swerved onto a sidewalk to avoid hitting pedestrians and crashed into a bench with a statue of “Homeless Jesus” on it. (Those statues, created by an Ontario artist, are on display in cities around the world.)

It’s a good thing the driver took that action:

Investigators say if the truck had continued, it would have headed into oncoming westbound traffic and pedestrians.

No one was injured… except Jesus, who was once again sacrificed for the greater good. But don’t worry. I assume the statue will return in three days.
