Media Covering Illinois ‘Penis Church’ Keep It Clean

PenisChurchBecause in this case, there’s no need to be clever, pun-tastic or salacious. The straight Dixon, IL facts are enough to hang some very bizarre headlines and first paragraphs on:

Pastor Denies New Church Intended to Look Like Giant Penis from Space
[AmericaBlog]

No Plans to Change Shape of Illinois Church That Looks Like Penis from the Sky, Officials Say
[New York Daily News]

Head of Infamous Penis Church: It Wasn’t Designed ‘to Be Seen from Above’
[Gawker]

P.S. As far as we could tell at press time, the New York Post has not yet jumped into the coverage fray. Definitely a missed opportunity for them.
