An Ohio homeowner was ordered by town officials to remove a Nativity scene in front of his house that featured zombies instead of wise men and a baby Jesus.
“I wanted a Nativity and I worked with what I had,” Jasen Dixon, who manages a nearby haunted house, told Fox 19. “The neighbors don’t like it. My father hates it and anything bad that happens he blames it on that.”
The Nativity scene features life-size figures and a zombie baby Jesus, with pale skin and pure white eyes. At night, the figures are illuminated by red and green lights.
Hey Jason, why don’t you lighten up, dude? It’s the Christmas season for Christ’s sake. People like nutcrackers, Santas, elves, candy canes, sugar plums, and 8 pound baby Jesuses. They don’t want to see demon babies foaming at the mouth and running around the front yard like they’re being chased by Rick and Daryl on the way to Terminus.
And Jason spare me the “woe is me” “infringing on my rights stuff.” You knew exactly what you were doing when you made this and knew the amount of backlash you’d receive.
Tis the season
UPDATE: They’re forcing him to remove the display by Friday (yesterday). That town really put their foot down by making him take it down AFTER Christmas.
