It’s not quite 900 feet, but the statue going up in Poland will be the world’s biggest Jeebus. Why are they building it? For the MONEY, silly.
Although erected ostensibly to show gratitude to God, the town hopes having the massive statue will bring tourists into a community that has lain off the beaten track for most of its existence. “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,” a local official told Wprost, a weekly news magazine.
