Religious Conservatives Outraged By Gay Nativity ‘Sacrilege’

Religious Conservatives Outraged By Gay Nativity ‘Sacrilege’ November 28, 2017

It’s a gay miracle – Jesus has two dads! Religious conservatives freak out after viewing viral gay nativity scene with two Josephs.

A viral image of a gay nativity with two Josephs has many people cheering, but as one might expect, religious conservatives are not so happy.

Recently comedian Cameron Esposito tweeted the image of the gay nativity scene, noting:

Our neighbors’ two Joseph nativity is up & I’m beaming.

The image was well received by many, but some conservatives were angry about the light hearted nativity set in a Los Angeles neighborhood. In particular, Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin is outraged by what he considers to be “sacrilege.”

Expressing his distress and great displeasure, Bishop Tobin wrote the following on his Facebook page:  

A Gay Nativity?

Just came across this photo of a “gay nativity” scene — two Josephs dressed in pink watching over the Christ Child. How sad that someone believes it’s okay (or funny or cool) to impose their own agenda on the holy Birth of Jesus. Pray for those who did so, for their change of heart, and that Jesus will forgive this sacrilege, this attack on the Christian Faith.

Others expressed agreement with Bishop Tobin. For example:

“What a blasphemous display of hatred towards our Blessed Lord.”

“This is also an offense against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to remove Her from a nativity scene.”

“That’s an absolute disgrace to the church and everything it stands for!”

“Horrifying.”

Bishop Tobin was not alone in his outrage. Other religious conservatives joined in the protest:

However, while some religious conservatives were angry, other more reasonable people saw the humor and fun in the creative gay nativity:

Bottom line: A viral gay nativity scene with two Josephs makes religious conservatives cry.
