Touchdown Jesus’ Statue Destroyed By Lightning

A statue of Jesus outside Monroe, Ohio caught fire after a lightning strike on Monday and burned to the ground.

The statue, built in 2004 and dubbed ‘Touchdown Jesus’, was a feature on the grounds of the Solid Rock Church in Monroe. Standing six stories high, the statue was named “King of Kings” but colloquially became called “Touchdown Jesus” — the arms approximate the signal a referee makes for a touchdown in professional football.

The better-known “Touchdown Jesus” — a mural at the University of Notre Dame — remained unscathed.
