Statue of Liberty Repaired: Made less "Jewy"

A church in Tennesee spent $260,000 on a 72-foot wrecklica of the Statue of Liberty. Not satisfied with the original, they replaced the torch with a cross. Instead of the statue's famous inscription -- "Give me your tired, your poor ...", She now holds a copy of the Ten Commandments.
They also fixed her nose to make her look less "Semetic"

The seven-spiked crown that represents the seven seas of the world, has been changed to signify the seven redemptive names of Christ, according to church pastor Apostle Alton R. Williams. Inscribed on the crown is the name Jehovah.

"A tear falls from her right eye representing her concern for America."
Yeah, thats what's making her cry

Church members said the mixture of the statue and Christian symbols represent "America belonging to God through Jesus Christ."

Reports that their next project is to replace the stars on the flag with little crucifixes could not be confirmed
