These keep sprouting from the ground

A new statue of Christ is being built, located approximately 140 km from where I live. It's larger than the one in Rio de Janeiro.

Out of all the things worth spending money on, they build...this. At least it wasn't built using public funds, but still...Priorities.

Weird, maybe they need to read the bible.

Quote from: Exod 10: 4-6
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am o jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of then that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

The statue was mostly funded by a religious organisation. They are known for cherry-picking the Truth :lol:

All the poor and sick who could be helped with that money, time and effort.  >:( It would be nice if lightning struck it and blew the pieces all the way to Asgard. :smilenod:

My thoughts exactly! IMO a religious organisation should invest in helping the vulnerable, feeding the poor and building hospitals for the sick, not investing 2 million bucks in a Pharaonic monument.

I had a talk just a few years ago with The Salvation Army. Remember this is supposed to be a non-profit organization. Well they did something that definitely doesn't help the poor. She was boasting about how the church used some of that non-profit money to build a hydraulic lift for the stage for the band. It cost in excess of $10,000 USD.
