A Variation

We passed by this in Memphis, in front of the World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church:
Statue of Liberty Holding Cross at World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church, Memphis
The Statue of Liberation Through Christ, as she is called, stands 72 feet tall from the base of her pedestal to the tip of her cross. She was the idea of Mr. Williams, a very successful pastor whose church, World Overcomers, qualifies as mega: it has a school, a bowling alley, a roller rink, a bookstore and, he said, 12,000 members.

I won’t put it here, but if you’re interested in the pastor’s view of the connection between natural disasters and New Orleans, and you’re prepared for the emotional distress that might bring on, finish the NYT article.
