One Jesus is enough. We don't need a brazilian.

Maybe they can use the bones of the covid victims as a foundation for the statue.

I was thinking it was begging for something else...  More symbolic.

Two statues say they're Jesus. One of 'em must be wrong!

And what slum will this tower over?  What child will be told to pray to Jesus so that maybe tomorrow he won't go hungry?  Surely the righteousness of creating an idol is better than feeding a hungry child...

Can we start crucifying Christians yet?  I mean they keep saying they want to be more like Christ... let's help them out.

Know what Brazil could probably use more than a big effing Jesus?  A big effing hospital for the poor.

The statue will be named Christ the Protector, and the man who named it died of COVID last month. He was the mayor of the city where the statue is located.

Do you have any idea how much you could help the world with half the money spent on a giant statue? I can't help but think He would be ashamed of this idolation of the man, over the idea, that he spent a lifetime desperately trying to convey to us.

Instead we spend our time and money building giant statues and giant crosses and giant churches instead of simply *Doing what He told us to do*.

All the world's christians, Jews, muslims, even atheists, all have a pretty good agreement of what constitutes what needs to be added to the world, but instead of doing that, we all stab each other and murder each other to death over who should we build giant statues of?

Christ didn't say one thing about who we should build giant statutes of. That wasn't the point of any of his teachings. And yet that is the hill literal millions of us literally want to die on.

I can't help but see this as analogous to children getting into a fistfight over who mommy loves more. I would much, much rather they didn't get into a fistfight to begin with; that certainly creates more work for me.

doomjesse: Obviously you know nothing of the Three Christs of Ypsilanti.


Meanwhile, the first Jesus says "I'll cure it soon!
"Abolish Monday mornings and Friday afternoons!"
The other one's on a hunger strike; he's dying by degrees.
How come Jesus gets industrial disease!?

Jesus didn't speak to that directly because there was no need. The prohibition against idols was clearly established and wasn't the subject of controversy or rules-lawyering.

Buddha on the other hand came from a culture with a strong tradition of idols so he had to directly forbid his followers to make statues of him after he died. It didn't matter because they disregarded what he said and made statues anyway.
/Buddha also said that after he died he would not appear in visions to give any further teachings. So when the Mahayana sect started making up newly revealed sutras and attributing them to the Buddha centuries after his death their justification was that Buddha had secretly entrusted the sutras to nagas (snake people) while he was still alive with instructions to keep them hidden from humanity until the moment was right for a dopey sect to emerge.

and will have an interior elevator and an observation deck near the top.

If the observation deck isn't a walkway inside the crown of thorns fencing, they're missing a huge opportunity

/ also a bar on the lower observation level that has windows looking out of the eyes

Where was his god when he was sick? Oh right, nowhere to be seen, as always.

Icons and thoughts and prayers, no real help for the poor. This is what fascists do.

We already have a touchdown Jesus. This one should be off sides Jesus.

On the one hand, this is a waste of money that could be used to do something useful, like help the poor, instead of serving Brazil's conservative oligarchy.
On the other hand, at least it's not a statue to slavers like we have in America.

I forget, what happened to the first statue? Was it blown up during the Independence Day invasion, or did a Decepticon knock it over? It was something to do with aliens, I'm pretty sure about that much.
