CP&S comment – This is already common news: but how sad to have to report on such a blasphemy in Advent! The Vatican is displaying a homoerotica Nativity crib, that is shockingly sacrilegious rather than edifying for the general public coming to view it. The scene is purportedly demonstrating the ‘corporal works of mercy’ (but it fails miserably even on that score, due to its suggestive and/or sinister figurines) and thus deliberately obscures the celebration of the greatest event taking place in the entire history of mankind – the Birth of the Son of God made Man. Criticism has come from all sides, ranging from mild to very harsh. Even the figures of the Holy Family are ungainly, unattractive, especially the one of the Blessed Virgin Mary. How could Pope Francis have allowed this horror from hell to stand? It should be bulldozed out of sight. Not even Facebook (no ‘friend’ to Catholic values) refused to display this mostrosity on its pages. Are we now at the point where Facebook has a greater degree of moral rectitude than the Pope and his inner circle?
