Pole

Polish Town Erects World's Largest Jesus Christ Statue

Recommended Posts

Polish town, Swiebodzin, erects world's largest Jesus Christ statue--bigger than Rio de Janeiro's

Workers in a small town in Poland have completed what they say is the world's biggest statue of Jesus Christ.

At 167 feet tall, the one in Swiebodzin soars even higher than the famed Christ the Redeemer monument in Rio de Janeiro, which is 125 feet tall. The statue is similar to the one in Brazil, depicting Jesus standing tall with his arms outstretched.

The Polish one, however, has a large golden crown and sits on a mound.

After the construction was delayed by strong winds, a crane lifted the shoulders, arms and head onto the statue on Saturday. The arms and shoulders weigh 30 tons alone.

The project has divided Poles the deeply Catholic population and secular society, with several calling the project tacky.

This is a very dangerous development. This could trigger a 'Jesus Christ' international arms race.

We could end up with a mile high Jesus in Milton Keynes or something.

Well that's a very nice looking pile of rubble for Jesus to stand on ;)

He also appears to have some kind of stomach affliction?

Evidently they don't believe in the ten commandments! Notably the one about making an idol.

Still, they're only following the age-old christian tradition of humbug and hypocrisy: every church has its idols. I understand some moslems, like puritans in the past, take their religious texts a bit more seriously.

:lol: all of these pictures and statues of Jesus crack me up.

Apart from the fact that he may not have even existed, nobody knows what he looked like.

Nice looking midden they stuck him on though :lol:
