Artist Mark Thaler found himself under a wave of fury after he designed ornaments that featured same-sex parents looking over baby Jesus for his company, reports the Daily Mail.

I'm at a loss for words. Nothing is "too much", or "too far out there" for the LBGTQIA circus freaks.

Let me guess-I haven’t read it yet, but I suspect the defense will be something like “He is our Jesus too...”

Let me guess - the next work that artist Mark Thaler is planning to produce will feature “Gay Mohammed”.

No?

I can’t imagine why not...

Along the same line I just learned Episcopalians celebrate “diversity” At least they do at my mother inlaws very liberal church.

No kidding.

Christianity is fair game...Because people who believe in Christ don’t chop people’s heads off, throw gay people out of tall buildings, or fly airplanes into even higher buildings.

Why doesn’t “Artist” Mark Thaler come up with a really edgy ornament of Mohammed poking a goat?

... the idiots also have a two lesbian Marys version ...

Defending the gay and lesbian ornaments, the individual who made the ornaments said: "Not everyone's viewpoints are the same. People need to coexist and not judge one another."

That’s been going on for quite awhile. My (former) small Episcopal Church caught that fever, and it split the church in half: One half left and started an “Anglican” congregation, and the half that stayed, out of loyalty, eventually splintered. We lost our priest, and got a female priest, and Bible Study turned into a re-education camp. I left, as did many others.

The "artist's" response:

> "...Thaler disagreed and called on people to stop judging others. “Not everyone’s viewpoints are the same. People need to coexist and not judge one another. It’s just an image,” Thaler maintained. He did say that he would consider removing the decorations “out of respect” for others. He also added that Christians should stop worrying about what other people are doing..."

Typical. "It's just an image".

Make no mistake. They don't believe in God or Christ, not even for a second. So for them, it is indeed "just an image" to be twisted or suited to meet their needs.

The appropriation of symbols, images, and language to be twisted and mangled to appropriate those in the cause of whatever movement they are involved in.

Except if you are white, male, christian, or otherwise “hetero-normative”.

Part and parcel of returning America to her former glory is putting these pervs back in the closet. Lock it and throw away the key.

I suppose we should be happy the Jospehs aren’t buggering each other, or the sheep in the stable.

People need to coexist and not judge one another.

Would they be offended by a cake that had two sodomites in a lake of fire? We all need to coexist you know.
