California Church Adds Bleeding Trayvon Martin to Nativity Scene

California Church Adds Bleeding Trayvon Martin to Nativity Scene

One of the reasons I walked away from the Methodist Church was its liberal activist wing. Case in point:

Nativity scenes have a few standard elements: a manger, swaddling clothes, happy parents, sheep, maybe the Three Wise Men. They don’t generally include Trayvon Martin.

But there he is, wearing a hoodie, a stream of blood pouring from his chest onto the straw-covered floor of the scene outside Claremont United Methodist Church, the holy family around him.

There is danger in the manger.

For the seventh straight Christmas, the church at 211 W. Foothill Blvd. has turned its Nativity display into a piece of art that comments on our times.

This church is leading it’s members astray.

They worry more about the world than they do the word:

1 John 2:15-17 ESV

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world–the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions–is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

They transform a holiday celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ into a commentary of our world.

Is there a better word for it than “blasphemy?” You tell me.
