On Monday night a major storm blew through the greater Cincinnati area and in the trail of damage it left this:

The famous King of Kings statue at the Solid Rock Church in Monroe is no longer after a fire destroyed the popular landmark Monday night.

The 62-foot tall statue of Jesus constructed out of styrofoam, wood and fiberglass resin caught on fire after the right hand of the statue was struck by lightning during the severe thunderstorms around 11:15 p.m.

The church has now vowed to rebuild the iconic statue and are even advertising on their marquee sign "he will be back", though there is no word on rather his return would be in three days time or not.

Join in after the jump for a special tribute to what Cincinnatians refer to as "Big Butter Jesus".
