More weirdness from the Christians-with-too-much-time-on-their-hands-and-an-overactive-imagination department. Seems a UK artist has created bronze statue of an angry Jesus brandishing a whip which he calls Cleansing of the Temple for its depiction of a pissed off Jesus laying the smack down on the money changers. All it took was one nut case to turn it into a circus:
Sculptor Burgess said: ‘It began when one woman who saw the statue fell to her knees and began praying.
‘She was transfixed for more than thirty minutes and when she came out of the trance she said she had witnessed sparks coming from the eyes of the Christ figure.
‘Now the word has spread and we have hoards of people coming along to pray and venerate the statue and many of them have said they have witnessed these sparks too.’
I sense an exciting action figure opportunity here: The Pissed Off Jesus with Angry Sparking Eye Action!
