In case you were worried that our public discourse was getting a LITTLE TOO SMART lately… Fox News has you covered.
In between their wall-to-wall coverage of private sector enemy number one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and gross revelations from their hosts about personal hygiene, the good people at Fox make like they’re at a chaperoned middle school dance: they always leave room for Jesus.
On Tuesday they did so literally, sharing a photo of a sun-lit cloud photographed in Italy that they referred to on Instagram as “the awe-inspiring likeness of Jesus Christ.”
It’s almost as awe-inspiring as when our Lord and Savior appears on toast.
Needless to say FOX got crucified on Twitter.
Fox News may have stopped tweeting but over on Instagram this morning they’re claiming Jesus Christ appeared to them in this sunrise. pic.twitter.com/E8ixiiAuJo

Meanwhile, Fox killed the story about Donald Trump's hush money payments ostensibly because they were "unable to verify all of the facts"https://t.co/R1xzzH0an8

Jesus: I'm thinking of paying Earth a little visit
Mrs. Christ: Ok sweetie. Make sure you do the pose so they know it's you
Jesus: Really? That was kinda my worst moment…
Mrs. Christ: Just do the pose. https://t.co/kB2xr9xBH7

Is it me or does that look more like an alien ship from Independence Day than the Lamb of God?

While, according to FOX, the cloud resembled Christ the Redeemer some observers saw different icons entirely.
