Church Statue + Lightning = ?

I'm not sure what the moral lesson is supposed to be, but if you've ever driven from Ann Arbor to Nashville (which I have very many times) you can't help but notice a statue of Jesus on I-75 in Ohio which has alternately been termed "Butter Jesus" and "Touchdown Jesus sinking in quicksand". If nothing else, it is terrible art.

Well, we just learned that the statue was struck by lightning and burned down to its steel frame (I know, we live in Kenya now. Small world). The magnitude of emotion is much more certain than the nature of the emotion accompanying this news. Here's the story.
