Giant crosses
Near my neck of the woods:

http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/.../24649463/

The story's a bit old; it's completed now.

I'm sure that a 110 foot tall, 18 ton useless structure is the best thing to build in tornado alley.

" “(The purpose of the crosses is) to remind the Christian of what Jesus did for them on Calvary and to reap the unsaved to let them know there is hope, peace and salvation in Jesus Christ," said Sara Abraham, a representative from Crosses Over America. "

Although, to be fair, when I see such a giant waste of time and money, I do have to fight the urge to fall to my knees while screaming gibberish.

Seriously, like how about taking all that time and money and build a homeless shelter or something else that actually helps people?

RE: Giant crosses
I don't know about you but I like my crosses big. Nice and big so they're easy to see.
It's the tiny ones you gotta worry about. They're small and hard to see, they'll just sneak up on ya.

Shelter only save their unworthy bodies while giant cross may help with salvation of their souls.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

That's in my former neck of the woods.

RE: Giant crosses
there is one near Uniontown, PA that I have been to a few times. Its on the edge of a mountain. The view from the spot they cleared it is awesome. Its called the Jumonville Cross. Its on the campus of a christian camp. I spotted it on a road trip and decided to explore.

We have the Papal cross here in Dublin. It's in the Phoenix park on the spot where Pope John Paul II had gig back in the late 70's. It's about 115 ft high.
