Nativity Scene Causes MAJOR Outrage

A nativity scene is causing major outrage but probably not for the reasons you'd think. Ana Kasparian, and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. MORE TYT: Read more here: "The Rev. Steve Josoma had no intention of his church becoming known for politics. The 64-year-old pastor at St. Susanna, a Catholic Parish in Dedham, Massachusetts, located just outside Boston, wasn’t trying to make waves or cause controversy last Christmas when he decided to put a cage around the Baby Jesus in the St. Susanna’s nativity scene, and wall off the Three Wise Men — he was merely trying to start a conversation. He's far from the only one. Churches across the country are using Christmas nativity scenes to make political statements and protests, from putting the Holy Family in cages, in a nod to the Southern border crisis, to depicting animals in the manger underwater and a creeping tide about to overtake Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in a nod to climate change. The displays have drawn both support and outrage from churchgoers and passers-by. Pastors agree that churches shouldn’t be partisan. But the Gospel is inherently political, they say, and it’s their job to facilitate conversations about morals and values, regardless of which party their congregants belong too."
