A gaggle of very angry Christians are furious at an Xmas decoration that features one too many Josephs for their tastes.
There are, in fact, two Christmas ornaments raising their ire — one featuring two Virgin Marys chillaxing in a manger with little baby Jesus, and another featuring the aforementioned pair of freewheeling Josephs.
They’re currently retailing at $18.
Christian Concern, a querulous group of religious wingnuts, thinks this is nothing but a “blasphemous attempt to rewrite the Christmas story.” A gay Christmas decoration showing a nativity scene with two Josephs.
“These decorations are a desperate and ridiculous attempt to pretend that homosexual relationships are pure and holy,” says chief executive Andrea Williams.
They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby group stoop in order to try and normalize their behavior?”
God’s design is for children to grow up with a male and a female parent. The Lord Jesus was parented in this way, and this is what is best for children.
The LGBT lobby is not interested in the welfare of children but only in pursuing its own selfish agenda. Trying to rewrite the Christmas story is their latest self-deception.”
Mark Thaler, the California-based artist who created the ornaments for his Zazzle company Pride and More — thinks Christian Concern needs to chill.
“‘It’s just an image,” he says. “They need to focus on themselves and not worry about what everyone else is doing.”
As The Daily Mail reports, he’s thinking of removing them “out of respect for his fellow humans,” and we hope he doesn’t.
This is only the latest entry in the “War on Christmas” saga that’s found Christian militants getting furious at inanimate objects like Starbucks coffee cups, and we’re eagerly anticipating their projected takedown of candy canes and jingle bells.
