More religious tomfoolery.

May 8, 2009

Just when you thought it was safe to assume that you’d seen everything from those of a religious persuasion they go and manage to trump themselves.
They’ve made a statue of Jesus out of Lego bricks that is almost 6 feet (1.78 metres) tall. You can see what it looks like below.

A carpenter who's not too good with bricks.

The good people of the congregation donated 30,000 bricks. And then they spent one and a half years making the model.
I’ll just repeat that last part (as if the whole thing isn’t bonkers enough). They spent a year and a half creating it.
It just looks like a marble statue that’s been pixelated badly.
Read the whole article here and enjoy some of the other staggering facts.

I don’t mean to be unkind (because this sort of behaviour, frankly, keeps them out of our road) but what else could they have achieved with a year and a half of their time?
“And Jesus said ‘Lo, you will go forth and make a really big, pointless effigy of me in little plastic modelling bricks’. And it was so.”
It’s in Sweden, so make sure you don’t happen past and accidentally trip.
What is it Christians say about forgiveness again? I’ll bet that would test their ability to forgive and be divine.
