Megachurch Mega-Lawn Ornament


A Memphis church that claims a membership of 12,000 will unveil a 72-foot-tall statue during Fourth of July services.

The Statue of Liberation looks a lot like the Statue of Liberty, but the famous torch is replaced by a cross. Instead of the inscription about giving the lady the tired and poor, there are Roman numerals for the Ten Commandments.

Guess what the price tag was for that little beauty? Depending on which story you read, it cost somewhere between $260,000 and $2.5 million. Blessed are the meek, bitchez.

Thanks for the heads-up to Sister Novena, who notes, “To put this into perspective, the actual statue of liberty is only 151 feet tall,” and to Stranger at Blah3 for the photo.
