Christmas in the Red Zone

Any of you who have been reading this blog for the past year or so have probably figured out that I am generally good-natured. But reading something like this sends me into that rare place...the Red Zone.

WTF ARE THESE PEOPLE THINKING? MICHELLE OBAMA, THE PRO-ABORT PRINCESS AS A STATUARY STAND-IN FOR OUR MOST BLESSED MOTHER? BARRY AS ST. JOSEPH, THE ULTIMATE MAN AND PERSONIFICATION OF SELFLESSNESS AND GUARDIAN OF THE MOST PRECIOUS LIFE EVER BORN UNTO THIS EARTH? OR AS A "WISE" MAN? DON'T GET ME STARTED....OH WAIT, I AM STARTED!!!!

The fact that I am in my ragey place in connection with Christmas seems sacrilegious. We are waiting for the Light of the World to arrive on the Feast of the Incarnation. Are there any brave priests or Bishops in Napoli who can stand up and protest this sickness?

I can't imagine that any Catholic of good conscience (not to mention taste) could possibly think this is a good idea, or that any amount of money is worth displaying this travesty in their stores. Not when your soul is at stake.

Why, after all this time, am I still capable of being shocked at the depravity of human nature....

Rosary meme tag.

And yes, I heard about this yesterday on the radio. Apparently, in Italy, in particular, it's become practice to for fun put people in the news in your creche scene.

Hell will FREEZE over before I'd put Obama in my creche scene. Did they put Hitler in too in 1939?

I'm just waiting for those to start popping up in front of some of the churches here in Detroit.

Needless to say, I don't think it's gonna happen at my parish, for which I am extremely grateful. What happened to not putting our trust in princes?

(And yes, I think putting Sarkozy and Bruni into the creche is just as tasteless. I just don't know enough about his politics to say whether it's as blisteringly ironic as the Obamas.)

How sick - and thoughtless can people be?
It's all so nasty.
