There are all sorts of ways to legitimately bring Jesus into your life. Stealing “baby Jesus” from a Nativity display is not one of them.
Unfortunately, this misdeed is not all that uncommon. The Washington Post recently reported on a number of incidents in which the baby Jesus came up missing. In one particularly heinous occurrence, “a baby Jesus doll was replaced with a freshly-severed pig’s head.”
That abominable incident took place “Christmas morning at the Sacred Hearts church in Haverhill, Massachusetts.” At the Greenfield, Massachusetts town square, a $3,000 Italian baby Jesus doll was taken on Christmas Eve morning.
Yet another “baby Jesus” was stolen from Ashville, North Carolina’s Trinity Baptist Church. It was then replaced with a lamb.
“Baaaa humbug” to all such crimes, nevertheless…
