Fox News’ Shannon Bream is on the scene as faith organizations stage a live Nativity scene.

This scene, sponsored by Faith and Action as well as The Christian Defense Coalition, is is part of “The Nativity Project.” The project seeks, in part, to bring attention to the hostility with which faith in the public square is met.

On Twitter, the camel is a hit.

Wow!

Twitchy will bring you more pictures from the scene as they come in.

    So who did they find to play the part of the Ass?

    • Kevin Krom

      They’re in DC, they can pretty much pull anyone off the street for that role. No costume needed.

      Possibly somebody from MSNBC?

      If it weren’t so close to Christmas, I might have suggested one of the residents of the White House.

    Wonder if the folks who protested – in their gay pride garb – at John “Bawl-baby” Boehner’s office are still in town. Imagine the attention they’d attract with their arrival at this event. Of course, they’d probably spook the camel.

      I thought they were ‘wearing’ general hedonistic garb. (re: nothing at all.)

    Bless! Which reminds me, the past few years, the Baby Jesus has been missing from the Nativity scene outside our best Catholic hospital (think He was stolen). Hmmm, the whole scene is gone this year, but mebbe it’s too early. Mind, my city is so libbie, only the zombies are allowed to show displays.

    Love it!!!

    I’m trying to think of a snarky comment about gold, incense, and myrrh but its not coming to me.

    Seriously, I agree with whomever said this should be done all over the country. Their protection is the first amendment.

    • twolaneflash

      They’ve taken our gold, left working people incensed over spending and taxing, and myrrh-dered the economy, The Constitution, The Republic, and associated freedoms. Merry Christmas, infidels!

    I love it how these groups claim to want “Faith” in the public square, but only as long as it’s Christianity. These types of private displays are always allowed, the only problem comes when public dollars or public spaces are used to sponsor a specific religion over another.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.burton2 Jordan Burton

      Who said anything about Christianity being the only faith being on display? Who said anything about having the government paying for any of it? We just want to be allowed our first amendment rights without being hassled by government or those who are “offended” by our faith. Also, just to put this “religious” equivalency to bed, Jesus Christ is the only true way to God; as per his words;

      6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
      No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know[a] my Father as well.From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:6-7)

      • Streetiebird

        Oh I’m sorry, who has been hassled over their private Christmas celebrations?

        • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.burton2 Jordan Burton

          Who said anything about private celebrations? This is about public displays of faith, all of which seems to be becoming more difficult to do. We only want to enjoy our faith and to follow the commands laid out by God; Spreading his word for all to hear.

          Christianity is not a private faith. It is meant to be shouted from the rooftops and spread throughout the whole world.

          • Streetiebird

            You did, you mentioned the first amendment. Who is being harassed over their freedom of expression? Everyone is free to celebrate what they want privately, but when government is “sponsoring” one religion over another in the public square, then someone is going to complain.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.burton2 Jordan Burton

            I’m not asking government to sponsor a religion. In fact, I am against that! Our ancestors came to North America because of state sponsored religion forcing everyone to believe as they do. If religion is state sponsored, it can then be used as a government cudgel to beat people into submission, as England did to the pilgrims; just as the Islamic nations do to their people. We the people do not need government to support any of our beliefs, we just ask they get out of the way and let us display our faith in public. Also, it wouldn’t hurt if more politicians would earnestly seek God. Have a good day! :]

          • Streetiebird

            Then again I will ask. Who is having their private Christmas celebrations rained on by the government??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

            Idiot — government isn’t sponsoring crap? Do you have a functioning brain — it was a association of Faith-based organizations that put this on. Jesus, Mary and Joseph … are you just trying to be the ass that Mary rode in Jerusalem, or really just that incapable of assimilating facts.

            Prove your assertion that government is sponsoring one religion over another. If anything your messiah is sponsoring Islam over all other religions.

          • Streetiebird

            Merry Christmas! :)

          Well, I don’t see how you can celebrate Christmas if you aren’t a Christian — after all, its a Christian Holiday. Oh wait, I’m sorry, the 1st Amendment is about freedom from religion, so anybody can celebrate Christmas.

          What exactly do non-Christians celebrate at Christmas (and don’t go down the made-up Kwanza route, and yes, it roughly coincides with Hanukkah) ? And yes, I acknowledge that the celebration was moved to coincide with the Winter Solstice to bring pagans into the church back in the day. But still — Christ is the reason for the season, and if you don’t believe in Christ, what exactly are you celebrating? Consuming … and now who doesn’t care about the environment. All those gifts you give and receive create GHG, deplete resources, require oil for all that plastic, and “slave labor” in Chinese factories.

          Liberals are such hypocrites. For the record, the gifts my wife and I give are hand made — wooden boxes, quilts, embroidered items, canned food from our garden, etc. We don’t buy a single one.

          And I have a small wooden box to finish … so I’m done for now. Rest assured I’ll be back later to see what other carpet-nuggets you’ve left for me.

          • Streetiebird

            How very Christian of you….

            the first amendment is freedom OF religion, not “from” religion. several of the original colonies had established state churches, just like back in england and many other european countries. the first amendment put an end to that so people could worship as they pleased.
            and yes, that included IN public.

          • SpinMeNot

            Yes, I am well aware of that. I left out the *sarcasm* marker.

      Amen to that. I pray God would bless this nation and in doing so, we can bless all other nations; to the glorification of God. These will be trying days ahead of us. Do not fear, for Jesus is King!

    Christians rally for freedom of speech and religion by dressing in historical dress and bring a live camel. Gays and progressives rally for rights by wearing a rainbow thong and angel wings.
