Here's one for the hair-brained, nutty ideas file. Apparently a group of Christians wants to build the world's largest cross, at a height of 60 metres, in Nazareth, to welcome pilgrims and tourists. According to the website, it will also house a museum displaying historical artifacts and a chapel. Call me a world-weary cynic, but what possible benefit is this to anyone? I would have thought that there's more pressing needs in the world than building such monuments. If you feel so inclined, visit http://www.nazarethcross.com/ and see for yourself what this is all about.
