DEDHAM (CBS) – It’s an unconventional take on the nativity scene at St. Susanna’s Parish Dedham. The baby Jesus is in a cage, the wise men are closed off by a wall.

For the parish, the crèche is meant to be thought provoking. “We try to take a picture of the world as it is and put it together with a Christmas message,” said Pastor Fr. Stephen Josoma.

That message this year questions “peace on earth”, since Jesus represents migrant children being held at the southern border separated from their parents.

The wise men are the caravan of migrants behind the border wall. They believe it’s very much the message of Jesus. “Jesus was about taking care of one another. This is not the way to take care of one another,” said Fr. Josoma.

“We’re not trying to scandalize anyone,” said parishioner Pat Ferrone, a member of the Pax Christi committee which came up with the idea for the display.

But mixing politics with religion isn’t sitting well with some who believe the nativity scene has crossed a line. “This is where you come to pray not to be preached at what you should think about politics,” said Helen Watson who drove to church to see the display.

Fr. Josoma insists the scene is not a dig at Trump administration policies. Instead of political activism he calls it gospel activism. “We talk about Matthew 25 feeding the hungry and welcoming the stranger.”

The parishioner and the vicar are merely expressing the meanderings of their twisted minds. What has been done was no doubt pleasing to Bergoglio who directs the new religion now espoused. It's not about God any longer, rather it's about secular humanism. Use the symbols of the Baby Jesus to make a twisted point about invading America.

The stupid liberals don't realize that Jesus wasn't an immigrant. Rome said to all, return to the city of your birth to be counted and taxed. What don't these soulless morons get about that?? Oh wait, they don't read, just swallow the vatican's hook. (1 image)
