Community Shaken By Interfaith Nativity Scene

The community of Red Oak, Alabama has been expressing its outrage over the last few weeks over an interfaith family’s all-inclusive nativity scene, which features figures and scenes from a myriad of different religious beliefs. One woman claimed it was the most disturbing sight she had ever beheld.

“It’s absolutely sickening, and blasphemous,” she said to a reporter as well as every stranger she came into contact with. “It’s an insult to God, and even worse, an insult to me.”

Dozens gather in the street every night to protest the scene by singing hateful Christmas carols and punching anyone who says “happy holidays.”

The hype has gotten a number of local theologians to weigh in on the issue. Greg Whittagan, the head pastor at a nearby church, says that Jesus would also have been offended by the display.

“Jesus’ message was clear,” said Pastor Whittagan, “and that message is that he was the Son of God. Any assertion that that was not true would have certainly upset Christ, and he would have used his heat-vision to destroy those who doubted him.”

The nativity scene itself does include a baby Jesus, but the other figures have been changed. The three wise men have been replaced with Moses, Buddha, and Vishnu. Joseph has been supplanted by Cthulhu, and the Virgin Mary has been swapped out for a statue of Beyoncé.

The family who set up the nativity scene says they are not fazed by the backlash.

“Freedom of religion means freedom of all religions,” said Cathy Vahaswanath, who lives in the home that put up the scene. “These people in my community are going to have to look at Moses and Buddha high-fiving and learn from that.”

The nativity scene can be found on Glennross Road in between the house with the giant cross on the front lawn, and the house that still has its Halloween decorations up.

10 Travel Tips for the Holiday

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year.  Before you head across the country to spend time with the relatives you never see, take a look at these travel tips to help you get to your destination quickly and safely.

 

Leave about an hour before you think you have to.  This way you’ll only be three hours late.

Surgically enlarge your bladder before departing.

Rest stops will constantly be packed so make sure you bring enough food for the trip, or enough munitions to loot fellow commuters mid transit.

Plan on having your Thanksgiving via Skype if traffic gets too bad.

If you’re flying, purchase three or four backup tickets on other flights for when something goes wrong with the first one.

Make sure to bring fully charged electronic entertainment with you so that if you’re travelling with family you can completely ignore each other easily.

Before leaving, passive-aggressively bring up how weird it is that your family never hosts Thanksgiving at your house.

Try taking out a bank loan to pay for gas.

Keep in mind that complaining about poor drivers will turn them into better drivers.

If you’re planning on going through Buffalo, don’t.
