The First Commandment

August 20, 2007

Our friend Alli went home to Cincinnati a few weeks back. I’ve been bugging her to get a picture of the Big Butter Jesus for a year or so and she finally decided to humor me.

Big Butter and Alli

Turns out, her parents new house is not to far away from the big guy himself. Somehow, she convinced her Mom to give her a ride (I can only imagine how that conversation went) out there to get the photo.

For the record, I don’t appreciate the Giant Jesus Statue. I spent a lot of time in church when I was younger and far too often it seemed, things like this have less to do with celebrating Christianity than they do with the ego of the person/congregation. “Look at how Holy we are!”



  1. Rick and I actually just had this conversation during church on Sunday. He said, “Don’t you think it’s odd that communion is served out of a gold bowl and cup?”

  2. So glad we got some footage!
