Crucifixion in Louisiana

And the simulacra keep on coming! This one was found on a telephone pole in rural Louisiana.

According to the Telegraph The resemblance was reported by drivers on Highway 26 in rural Jeff Davis parish.

It didn't last long, however. After it came to light officials acted quickly, in case someone tried to climb it to be closer to Jesus.

Mike Heinen, a local electrical manager, said: “We were getting to that one but since it had such notoriety we went and cleared it up today. For public safety concerns we don’t want anybody trying to climb the pole or trying to touch the vines.” He said a church might be a better place to go looking for Jesus.!


Ah well!

He said a church might be a better place to go looking for Jesus!

Or perhaps in Heaven.

If they climbed that pole they would be seeing Jesus a whole lot quicker than church. The glass insulators indicate bare wires and voltages greater than 4kv, which is why they went after the kudzu. Really high humidity or rain and anyone near the vines could be in for a nasty surprise.

Better it should be Gallowgate than Galilee Andrew!

Ach there's something that revolts me Nevin! The idea of burning books, also effigies is revolting to m

As Bryan says, James, Heaven may be where a searcher is heading!

I got the feeling that there would be something like that in store for someone who wanted to commune with jesus Bryan!

'officials acted quickly, in case someone tried to climb it to be closer to Jesus'

That's why we call ourselves Homo sapiens sapiens.
