Along I-57 in Effingham, IL is a fantasticly over the top monument to modern Christianity! Towering roughly 200 feet tall, the giant cross is on the edge of the expressway. I wouldn’t make a special trip but on the road between Chicago and Memphis, it’s one of only two sites.


Sadly, I missed my chance to snap a pic of the bizarro Abe Lincoln.

  1. what a waste of money that could have been used to say help the poor or something. Good going christians! Build a giant idol to yourselves instead of following that book you guys are supposed to follow.
