God paid a visit to Maine this week, and it was scary as Hell.

A high school student in Grand Isle recently captured the insane moment that lightning struck the steeple of a church.

Carl Bouley was filming the rain over St. Gerard Catholic Church from his porch across the street when it happened, and his volunteer firefighter father went over afterwards to check on the damages.

The church has has actually been struck before in August of 2007, according to the Maine Sun Journal.

“It kind of scared me a bit,” he told the Journal. “It felt like a small shockwave hit.”

A second camera was able to capture what happened on the ground below at the exact same moment.

Great Scott!

The rules are as follows: 

1. Don't be an a**hole. Treat everyone with love as an equal.

2. The day it starts with your smile every morning, when you get up, wear it first.

3. Help others when you can. Not for money, but because you can.

4. Treat your body as a temple. Do not poison it with poor quality foods and sodas.

5. Do not take advantage of people. Do not intentionally hurt anything.

6. Never start a fight...only finish them.

7. Grow food, raise animals get nature in your daily routine.

8. Do not be a "troll" on the internet, respect others  with out name calling and being vulgarly agressive. 

9. Spend 10 minutes a day just contemplating life in a quiet space.

10. When you see a bully... stop them by any means possible. Protect those who cannot protect themselves.

11. Laugh often, share humor. Have fun in life, be positive. 

12. Cannabis, "the healing plant" is our sacrament. It brings us closer to ourselves and others. It is our fountain of health, our love, curing us of illness and depression. We embrace it with our whole heart and spirit, individually and as a group. 

-Amen

This delicious campaign is the brainchild of Lux Dei Design, a New Jersey-based Christian design firm. The firm's tenuous logic is as follows: church attendance is in decline across the United States, and so churches need to find new ways to attract "clientele." Enter, Big Mac.

One of the many reasons why Martin Luther broke away from the Catholic Church way back in the 16th century to form Protestantism was because he disagreed with a common practice which he called the "sale of indulgences." People could sin as much as they wanted, then just simply pay a priest some money and all would be forgiven in the eyes of God.

I wonder what he would think of the literal sale of indulgent burgers these days...

Also, never has this pairing of billboards been more relevant:
