    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Why is it a trap? They want their baby back from whoever took it. I seriously doubt the guy is looking at any jail time, but it wouldn't hurt him to do a little work in a homeless shelter or soup kitchen. Maybe that would be a positive turning point for him. When you steal you have to have some consequence otherwise our entire system breaks down and becomes a free for all.

    A few years ago my wife was promoted to run a Catholic sponsored medical facility. I went to meet her for lunch a week or so before Christmas and she was giving me a tour. I noticed that there was no baby Jesus in their nativity scene, and she kinda freaked out saying "On the job for a month and I've lost Jesus!" She called security and the head of security cracked up and told us that its an old Catholic tradition to not put Jesus in the manger until midnight on Christmas eve.

    Maybe the thief is just an old school Catholic?

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I don't know why someone would steal Jesus. He's already given everything to us for free.

    Our sheriff's office just posted this afternoon that a local nativity scene had it's baby Jesus and a donkey stolen. I imagine it happens more often than we think by teens who think this kind of thing is funny.

    Kapnketel, that's funny - I can almost picture someone's reaction - I was raised Catholc so it's strange to me that babies are in mangers already...

    We never put Jesus in our manger scene until Christmas morning. The wisemen move closer after Christmas.

    Prank or not, I think the underlying thing here is the subtle reminder that there is and will be opposition to Jesus from the "anti-Jesus" people. Just like people opposed to firearms, there is a growing number of those people who dislike and are offended by any mention of Jesus Christ or portraying any type of image to represent Him.

    Of course I could be reading way too much into this, but the more it happens the more I wonder if anti Jesus forces are at work hoping to eliminate any reference to Him whatsoever. It seems to be creeping in and one day we might wake up and no longer see or hear about Him.

    That needs to be addressed by those who still believe.

    I don't know why, but that made me laugh. Maybe because "the whole nativity thing" is central to Christianity, second only to Easter. So yes, your family isn't "overly" religious. There's a certain beauty in understatement.

    Sounds like the guy really needs Jesus. To bad he can remember where he put Him.

    Drunk, eh? Perhaps he simply had one too many Three Wise Men, saw stars, followed them, and felt himself drawn to the manger where he laid himself down to sleep?

    Look on the bright side: At least he didn't take the sheep.

    I've seen them, we just never put one on our own porch or anything.
