If the idea of Jesus having two dads strikes you as over-the-top, you haven’t spent much time with the Bible.
Is it any more absurd than God conceiving his Earthly son Jesus through Mary — a virgin?
So assuming the Bible is full of make-believe, why not celebrate the ancient tradition of storytelling by adding your own twists that speak to you?
That’s the direction one early Christmas decorator took, and it’s delighted thousands.
Comedian Cameron Esposito tweeted a photo of a neighbor’s yard, which features a Nativity scene with baby Jesus and two Josephs. “Our neighbors’ two Joseph nativity is up & I’m beaming,” the out comic said in the caption.

The Bible says that Jesus had two dads. I see nothing wrong with this.

Salesperson: Sirs, it comes with the whole set, I can't sell you two Josephs.
Later: Gays high-fiving lesbian neighbors as there are now two same-sex nativity sets on their block.

Joseph: WTH Joseph, I told you I was wearing pink!
Joseph: You know I love this robe! What do you want me to do, get changed?

That's just wrong.
The baby isn't supposed to be seen until after midnight, Christmas Eve.
