Giant Jesus, struck by lightning, burns to the ground (but is due a resurrection)

A six-story statue of Jesus Christ just north of Cincinnati, affectionately known as "Touchdown Jesus" for its stance, burned to the ground. Church officials say they'll rebuild, maybe even on a grander scale. AP, Time
