Poland to build world's largest Jesus statue

The world's largest statue of Jesus is being constructed in a small Polish town.
The new statue will eclipse Rio's "Christ the Redeemer" and will help put Swiebodzin on the map. "If we had opened a racetrack or a golf course here, tourists would have come only for the season. But with a statue of Jesus the season will last the whole year," said a local official.
Swiebodzin, a Polish town of 21,000 near the German border, will soon be home to a 33-metre effigy of Christ, which, along with a crown that adds a further two metres and its 16-metre mound will put all other statues dedicated to the son of God in its shade.

Not that I advocate it, but why hasn't at least one town stepped up to the plate and tried to build the biggest Satan?

"omegaprophet" I see your point but unless humans are bowing down at its feet and such I don't think it would be considered a idol...IMO

It is only going to be up for a year, looks like a colossal waste of money to me.

What to expect of a country becoming the first catholic theocracy! A number of things, like substituting bureaucracy with cardinals, so they have to pay only one batch of parasites instead of two. Anyway, the lightning rod will add 2 metres more to the overall height. Donít tell me they forgot the lightning rod.
