A real estate entrepreneur in Spearfish wants to erect a large sculpture of Jesus Christ on city-owned land high upon a hillside.
Rand Williams says the issue of separation of church and state is a legitimate concern, but he at least wants public discussion about his idea.
Williams last year bought a 6,000-seat amphitheater that hosted the Black Hills Passion Play for nearly 70 years. The play that attracted millions of visitors for summer productions recreated the last seven days of Christ.
Williams says his vision for revitalizing the amphitheater won't necessarily be derailed if the idea for the Christ statue doesn't pan out.
