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!

No it's not a Vine magic trick, it's a miracle! Or something like that.

At the Church of God in Christ's 107th Holy Convocation last weekend in St. Louis, a man announced that he had been "delivered" from his homosexuality. He vowed to never carry a purse again or wear makeup, all the while speaking in tongues. Sounds pretty legit.

You can watch the whole video below, including the celebrational, post-deliverance dance.

Poor Photoshopping by the Russian Orthodox Church appears to be at the center of a cover-up gone wrong. A $30,000 Breguet timepiece, pictured on the church's website on the arm of Patriarch Kirill I, later went missing from the photograph; the watch's reflection on the table did not. Russian bloggers spotted the discrepancy and erupted over the church's flaunting its lavish wealth. The Patriarchate, who has denied wearing the watch, vowed to investigate the "technical mistake."
