"...having seven heads and ten horns."

I have always thought of this church as "Our Lady of the Mohawks" because of the ridiculous pigeon-spikes on top of all the statues' heads, giving them all aluminum mohawks.

Even the cow with wings. That's right. The cow. with wings.

    Cow with wings? Is there a Lion with wings and a Man with wings too?

    If so then that would be a reference to the creatures from Ezekial's vision and/or the Four Creatures of Revelations.

    You'd think that God could have created pigeons such that they didn't roost on churches or something. Maybe putting up this anti-bird stuff is actually against God's plan. He is inscrutable and all...

    Holy cow!

    Theologically this just seems all wrong.

    You would think God would keep the pigeons away.

    I suppose he gave the pigeons free will or something. If so, then, trying to send them away is to disrespect God's creations.

    Plus, the sacrifice of having to clean the pigeon shit off the statues would be humbling. Having to go to such lengths to keep the issue of God's creatures off your intricate idols smacks of sinful pride.

    I don't know why they don't just pray the pigeons away. If that's not working, then God must want your statues to have pigeon shit on them, so deal with it.

    That looks like Sam the Eagle from the Muppets.

    That doesn't look right. To me, pigeon spikes just aren't complete without a few nests built in them.
