NAPLES — President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, are appearing in Italian nativity scenes this year, alongside the baby Jesus and wise men, according to Naples craftsmen selling figurines in the run-up to Christmas.[article]
Well I guess we should be happy they are not replacing Jesus with the Obama child in swaddling clothes. Surprised they at least didn’t have him down as one of the wiseman. Surely his pal Gov. Blagojevich could sell a wise man seat to him. Obama would be better cast as King Herod the Great with the murder of the innocents.
Well, he IS “The Obamessiah” yah know.
Or… is he the Obomination?

Christmas ain’t over, you may have spoken too soon.
Gee.. it’ s just what I always wanted! Now if only I could get a gift card to Planned Parenthood, I would, like, totally be in the Christmas spirit. Peace on earth, and free choice to all women*!

Hmm. Your expletive was very hard for my Google homepage to understand…it thinks it’s some sort of weird HTML code.
Disturbing post though.
The nativity scene our parish priest sets up, which is beautiful and elaborate, includes a couple of funny things like a scale model set of coke bottles in the little hut that is set up like a market. And there are rabbits on the countryside and pigs in a pen.
Jeff, now I think I might consider using this little guy in my scene. Anything is better than this!
Jesus said: “Watch out! Don’t let anyone fool you! 5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah!’ and they will lead many astray.” Mt 24:4
King Herod is the perfect part for him!This also goes to show nothing is sacred- not even a nativity scene. How sad.
1. The sound you hear is San Francesco turning over in his grave at how they have taken what was supposed to be a loving representation of the birth of Christ.
Presepio – NO!!!!
Infamia – SI!!!!!
