The Theological Implication...

...are staggering.

A six-story-tall statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway was struck by lightning in a thunderstorm Monday night and burned to the ground, police said.

What does it all mean? No idols? No tacky idols? Some other god is jealous? (I suspect Zeus, lighting is his style) The random workings of a random universe?

Apparently the parliament in Iceland was struck by lightning when they were determining whether or not worshiping Norse gods should count as a "real" religion. They decided it was a sign from Thor and voted "yes."
