I can see the Cops raiding their house "OH God Help US" Heck no you stole baby Jesus
Seems like this happens every year.
If only they recognized the irony of their act.
I think Jesus would approve.
Some degenerates will steal anything just to be stealing.
Its only a doll. Whoever stole it deserves public ridicule, but it's not like he named it Mohammed, is it?
While I detest stealing from a nativity scene it does remind me of an old episode of Adam-12. They had been called to a church because the statue of the baby Jesus had been stolen. While talking with the preist a young boy comes up with a red wagon. In the wagon was the statue. He had promised Jesus a ride in his wagon if he got one for Christmas and he was just keeping his promise. Boy the things you can remember over time. I hope this is something similar.
Regardless of the age of the thief, this is an act that signifies immaturity and a demand for attention.
However, that senseless action may end up focusing more attention than would otherwise be shown regarding the nativity scene and its meaning.
Hey! Some people just NEED Jesus!
Now there is a $500 reward offered for the return of the Baby Jesus figure. I can just imagine the dim witted thief bringing it back and attempting to claim the reward.

Couldn't you just buy a new baby Jesus doll for less than $500? For that much money I could dress him up in an Elvis costume.
