Touchdown Jesus, Big Butter Jesus
The statue called Big Butter Jesus or Touchdown Jesus located in Ohio is struck by lightning.
The so-called Big Butter Jesus, or Touchdown Jesus, that iconic62-foot piece of Savior-art on I-75 in Ohio, was struck by lightning last night between 11 pm and midnight. It was completely destroyed by fire, save for the charred steel frame.

The statue was built at the edge of a lake on the property of Solid Rock Church in Monroe, Ohio. Read full story at Gather.com
