Either a supreme deity is fed up with His followers, or He has a twisted sense of humor.

Stunning YouTube footage of a thunderstorm in Grand Isle, Maine, shows the moment that lightning struck the St. Gerard-Mount Carmel Parish. (Warning: The clip includes NSFW exclamations of awe.)

Carl Bouley, the 16-year-old who recorded the lightning strike, told NECN that he had also seen the church struck by lightning in 2007.

“The fact that I got it on camera makes everything a little more unrealistic in my eyes,” he said.
