WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 14: The words "In God We Trust" are seen on U.S. currency October 14, 2004 in Washington, DC. Although the U.S. constitution prohibits an official state religion, references to God appear on American money, the U.S. Congress starts its daily session with a prayer, and the same U.S. Supreme Court that has consistently struck down organized prayer in public schools as unconstitutional opens its public sessions by asking for the blessings of God. The Supreme Court will soon use cases from Kentucky and Texas to consider the constitutionality of Ten Commandments displays on government property, addressing a church-state issue that has ignited controversy around the country.

You didn’t misread that headline … a solid gold toilet named ‘America’ has been stolen from Winston Churchill’s birthplace in England! The toilet was part of an art exhibit inside Churchill’s childhood home and was hand crafted from Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan! The toilet is worth $1.2 million dollars! Perhaps the strangest part of this whole story is that the toilet was connected to the home’s plumbing, but was somehow disconnected by the thieves… and they needed to use 2 cars to run off with it! Police said the toilet’s removal caused “significant damage and flooding” to the building and a 66 year old man has been arrested in the case but has yet to be charged or identified.
