There's religion ...

and then there's RE-EFFING-LIGION. In the town of Effingham, Illinois, they've built a freestanding, 19-story high white cross where two freeways meet. It was erected by a Baptist Church. I'm glad they were Baptists. If Catholics got this idea it would be holding a 198-foot-high crucified Christ.

I found this while searching for a picture of Lord Effingham, who is a real British Lord, but whose name I first heard from x09 in the phrase "I'm Lord Effingham and I want an Effing Ham Sandwich." I don't know if that's a Tom original or a quote from someone else...
