Lord of Shadows

To many people, Jesus Christ is a beacon in the night…a lighthouse on the shores of the spirit…a bright burning flame in the heart of darkness…a candle in the wind…a gooey Lava Lamp of love….  If this is so, why are so many people in Chicago staring at his shadow?  That’s right, it’s another case of “Where’s Jesus?” in which we find him projected as a shadow from a street light. Unfortunately they had to turn off the light because people were flocking around it, some of them getting into fights.  But maybe that’s just God’s plan for them…?

EAST CHICAGO, ID (AP) — A town in Indiana has turned off a streetlight that drew hundreds of people to see a shadow that some say looked like Jesus Christ.

The police chief of East Chicago, Indiana, called an emergency meeting yesterday to recommend the light be turned off in the interest of public safety. Nearby residents had complained about blocked cars and visitors congregating until five a-m. Several arrests were made Friday night after a large fight broke out in the area.

People have flocked to the site since Wednesday, when a woman first claimed to see the image on the side of a tree. It’s only visible at night when the streetlight near the tree is on.

And I thought the holy underpass water stain was a stretch!

  1. I like how a fight broke out… how did THAT happen? “Lemme see Jesus Christ!” “NO, let ME see Jesus Christ!” Another reason to ponder religion and religious type people… again.
