This the first time a nativity scene was vandalized and I can care less.
I've said many times before that liberalism is like a moral cancer. It spreads and spreads and spreads. Even the church isn't immune to it. Many progressives aren't big fans of Christianity, because the Christian theology goes against what progressives stand for and support. The two main stables of the culture clash between traditional Christianity and liberalism is on the topics of homosexuality and abortion. The piece of human bio waste Governor here in Maryland Martin O'Malley claims to be a Catholic, however, he's going to support legislation in the Maryland General Assembly next year to legalize gay marriage. He's pretty much a fake Christian and a fake Catholic. Anyways, all churches aren't created equal. Some churches are tradition in following the scripture as it is written, while others are progressive in ignoring what is written and instead believe that god will support their lifestyles regardless of what it is. Here's a perfect example. A vandal vandalized the nativity scene at the Claremont United Methodist Church in Southern California a few days ago. Now, you might be wondering what does this have to do with progressives and Christianity. The vandal didn't vandalize a "typical" native scene. The church had a "gay themed nativity scene".
The ironic aspect of this story is that the police are investigating the vandalism as a "hate crime" not because of the vandalism being religious in nature but because of the sexuality of the theme!! If the nativity scene was just of Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus and the nativity scene was vandalized, the police would just shrug their shoulders and just call it a random act of vandalism. I can't understand the twisted thinking behind a gay nativity scene by a so called church in the first place, because it makes absolutely zero sense. The town of Claremont is known to be progressive. Even with that being said for the Claremont Methodist Church to display a gay nativity scene just spells disrespect to to the very faith they claim to represent. Since the church made a mockery of the nativity scene in the first place, I really can't be unnerved that a person vandalized an "alternative version" of it.
