The Vatican Nativity scene this year features a hot naked beefy man, a corpse, and no sheep or oxen and it is driving right-wing Christians crazy and to the breaking point this holiday season.
The Nativity scene was donated by the Benedictine Abbey of Montevergine in southern Italy. It features 20 terracotta figures, some as tall as 6 feet, posed over an 860-square-foot scene and created in 18th century Neapolitan style.
The display depicts seven corporal works of mercy. In one vignette, a dead man is being buried, in another a prisoner is visited. The naked man is being clothed.
“A naked man steals the show in the Vatican’s new nativity scene rendition,” declared Veritas Vincit International, a self-described “End Times” blog.
“Most people’s eyes would probably be led first and attracted to the ‘unique’ sight of a naked man prominently featured in the official nativity scene of the Vatican – set right at the forefront of the giant Christmas tree,” the blog insists.
Some Christian crazies lamented the figure’s “prominent placement and languid pose, at Breitbart, which reported that the figure’s pose “led many on social media to suggest that there is a vaguely homoerotic tone to the scene.”
One observer remarked, regarding the poor man in need of clothes: “I’ve worked with a personal trainer. That guy’s been in the gym two hours a day, six days a week.”
“This horrendous exhibit is a sacrilegious, highly deceitful and malevolent attempt to turn the holy innocence of the manger in St. Peter’s Square into a lobbying tool for the homosexual rights movement, is just the latest fiendish act, but one that’s symptomatic of this entire pontificate,” one source close to the Vatican told extreme right Christian Nationalist LifeSiteNews.
Of course the Nativity has nothing to do with the LGBT community.
It is the representation of Jesus’ birth is inspired by works of mercy and is a reminder “that Jesus told us: ‘Do to others what you would have them do to you,” Pope Francis said earlier this month in introducing the scene and thanking those who worked on it.
But don’t tell Brietbart and Lifesite. The sound of their brains exploding is the best Christmas gift ever!
