Your eyes are not deceived. It’s the Statue of Liberty holding a cross, property of World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church. The New York Times covered it last summer when it was unveiled.

The statue, inspired by a Memphis church that has three giant crosses, strikes [Pastor Alton R. Williams] as “a creative means of just really letting people know that God is the foundation of our nation,” he said.

What’s that? A Memphis church with three giant crosses? That would be Bellevue Baptist Church. My host, Chris Stahl, drove me past those as well:

I wonder which church Jesus loves more…
