Two Josephs? The latest attempt to infect Christmas with the gender revolution

A gay Christmas decoration showing a nativity scene with two Josephs is being offered for sale in the US and the UK.

    The Californian company also offers a lesbian version with two Virgin Marys sitting beside a baby Jesus Christ, who is lying in a manger. But the designs might have been lifted from another seller.

    The latest attempt to infect Christmas with the gender revolution has met with little enthusiasm. A Christian group called Christian Concern called the decorations created by a California-based designer a “blasphemous attempt to rewrite the Christmas story”.

    Chief executive 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 normalise their behaviour?”

    Williams added: “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.

    “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.”

    The gay designs by Californian Mark Thaler, were from company his Pride and More and available to buy in the UK too.

    Thaler has since removed the decorations from sale “out of respect for his fellow humans” the British Daily Mail reported, but it may be because he stole them from another gay designer. Thaler’s design were not original – something media outlets seem to have overlooked.

    The scenes on his ornaments are duplicates of images found on a “Gay Christmas Card” and “Lesbian Christmas Card,” also sold on Zazzle, in the UK, by a company called Jesus in Love, reported.

    Kittredge Cherry, a self-described “lesbian Christian author, art historian and minister,” is the designer for Jesus in Love, also based in California. In a blog post – from 2009 – Cherry revealed that she “created my own gay and lesbian nativity scenes,” just “like putting two brides or two grooms on top of a wedding cake!”

    The product description for her nativity card with two “Josephs” read:

    What if the child of God was born to a gay couple? Because, after all, LOVE makes a family, including the Holy Family. This card shows a gay Nativity scene of two Josephs with the baby Jesus. It is true to the spirit of Christmas: God’s child conceived in an extraordinary way and born into disreputable circumstances. Everyone belongs in the Christmas story, including LGBT people and our allies.

    This is a familiar Cherry topic. Just last year, in a Huffington Post blog, she advertised her new book with some stomach-churning remarks: The Passion of Christ: A Gay Vision which holds 24 paintings of a “gay Jesus” and his “homoerotic union with God” during his crucifixion, death and resurrection.”

    While Cherry admitted that her nativities were not historically accurate, she insisted that “they are true to the spirit of the Christmas”.

    “Go ahead and imagine that Jesus has two mommies,” she continued. “According to the Bible story, Joseph was an adoptive father anyway. The Virgin Mary had Jesus without sex with a man — much like lesbian mothers who use artificial insemination.”

    She has not yet explained how the two Josephs could have a baby.

    In her promotional material she warns her readers that “rearranging the Holy Family is not as simple as it seems”.

    “Be sure to buy a set with freestanding figures,” she proposed. “In many cases Mary, Joseph and Jesus are wedded together in one inseparable, three-headed blob. What does that say about our attachment to idealized, sanctified heterosexuality?”

    Cherry might have lifted her ideas from Dutch homosexuals. She says her “inspiration” came from a “gay and lesbian Nativity scene” with live actors for a 2008 “Pink Christmas” festival in Amsterdam. That idea sparked her “own lesbian Christian spiritual awakening while waiting for the event”.

    In 2011 part of a gay nativity scene at a church in Claremont, California was demolished over Christmas weekend.

    Claremont United Methodist Church is a “pro-gay” congregation. Their nativity included silhouettes of a gay couple and a lesbian couple under the star of Bethlehem with a sign that said “Christ is Born”.

    Someone demolished the gay and lesbian couples, but left up the heterosexual couple. “Christ’s birth in a stable had a lot to do with poverty and being marginalized,” Pastor Sharon Rhodes-Wickett told the Los Angeles Times. “What this church has tried to do through these scenes is say, ‘What would that look like today?'”
