Bloody Trayvon Martin Creche–
The Claremont United Methodist Church east of Los Angeles took the Baby Jesus out of Christmas and replaced him with a bloody Trayvon Martin in a hoodie.
They call it art.
Scared Monkeys reported:
The Claremont United Methodist Church, about 30 miles east of Los Angeles, California, and John Zachary, the individual behind the “artistic interpretation,” has managed to infuriate many with their depiction of the Nativity scene this Christmas season by replacing the baby Jesus with Trayvon Martin. Yup … because some how I get the two of them confused all off the time.
I just have two words, “Sacrilege” and an “Abomination”!!!
