A Christian group slammed Christmas ornaments that featured gay Josephs as a “blasphemous” attack in a statement Monday.
Artist Mark Thaler found himself under a wave of fury after he designed ornaments that featured same-sex parents looking over baby Jesus for his company, reports the Daily Mail.
The ornaments either had two gay Josephs or two lesbian Marys kneeling before baby Jesus.
‘They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby stoop to in order to try and normalise their behaviour?” Andrea Williams, chief executive of Christian Concern, a group that fights for the return of Christianity to the United Kingdom, said in the statement.
She also alleged that the gay community is just trying to rewrite the Christian story to fit their own agenda.
“The LGBT lobby is not interested in the welfare of children but only in pursuing its own selfish agenda. Trying to rewrite the Christmas story is their latest self-deception,” Williams said.
Thaler disagreed and called on people to stop judging others.
“Not everyone’s viewpoints are the same. People need to coexist and not judge one another. It’s just an image,” Thaler maintained.
He did say that he would consider removing the decorations “out of respect” for others. He also added that Christians should stop worrying about what other people are doing.
