Viral gay nativity scene is not a nativity scene at all

An image of a Christmas nativity scene featuring two gay Josephs in pink recently went viral on Twitter.

“Our neighbor’s two Joseph nativity is up & I’m beaming,” tweeted podcaster Cameron Esposito on Friday.

Responses to that tweet were celebratory. One even posted their own lesbian version of the “gaytivity.”

Here’s the glaring issue: Two Josephs or Marys in pink are NOT nativity scenes. It’s by definition not a nativity scene, because without Mary and Joseph it’s not a depiction of the nativity. No amount of progressive iconoclasm can ever change that.

Any true Christian will tell you those depictions of the “gaytivity” are highly sacrilegious and blasphemous. Christians with correct theology understand that homosexual behavior is prohibited by the moral law of God. It is obscene to place a homosexual couple in the nativity with Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

The First Amendment means people have a right to display whatever sort of mockery of the nativity scene they wish, but that doesn’t make it any less offensive to Christians.
