Image of Jesus appears in a Colombian tree

    Residents of Magangué, Colombia recently broke the compulsory quarantine to visit Jesus Christ who was hanging out in a tree. Praise be to pareidolia. From a El Tiempo via Google Translate:

    “It looks clear and everyone is praying to him and asking him to cure the land of this evil and to protect Magangué,” says Agustina Díaz, a town clothing merchant, who closed her store in the center of town for the pandemic.

    What worries local authorities is that the image is becoming a point of pilgrimage and worship and people are taking to the streets en masse, ignoring the health emergency in the country.
