Some Christians have slammed a new version of a traditional nativity scene – Two Josephs sitting beside a baby Jesus Christ in a manger.
This version, along with a lesbian version, if preferred, is being placed on Christmas tree ornaments by a California artist.
This artistic expression has a campaign group, Christian Concern, labeling the idea as a, “blasphemous attempt to rewrite the Christmas story.”
Chief executive of the group, Andrea Williams said, “These decorations are a desperate and ridiculous attempt to pretend that homosexual relationships are pure and holy. They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby stoop to 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,” Williams added.
Williams went on to express her concern that, “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.”
