  • brandon

    #8 ftw!

  • Steven

    random, but funny!

    • UR dumb & here's why

      yeah a nativity post is SOOOO random in mid december.
      stupid

  • Head Chef

    "Let’s all try just this once not to take this post too seriously"

    Because all the Jesus freaks would freak out?

    • texjosh

      By definition, yes.

    • Tuff Guy

      Ya, jackass…. Because no Christians have a sense of humor, right?

      • Tuff Guy is a tool

        Well, yeah, fundy christians especially. That was a strong reaction…are you a christian, Tuff Guy?

    • Underbaker

      I make it no secret that I am a Christian, and I find this funny as heck. (BTW Heck is where people go who don't believe in Gosh)

      • http://www.thechive.com SmokeyMorgan

        Well played, lol. I am a Christian too. Nice to know some of us have a sense of humor as well.

    • Texican426

      It is also highly possible that non-religious people would get pissed off at the Chive for depicting what is, at its heart, a religious symbol.

      It would be like a post of the funniest churches or cutest depictions of Jesus. I dunno.

    • MylesofStyles

      God showed that He has an awesome sense of humor when he allowed hairless monkeys to rule the earth.

    • hMMMM

      I'm a Christian, and I don't find this shit funny at all. Instead of criticizing someone who is offended by this, why don't you take a look in the mirror and ask why you can't respect how much this nativity scene means to Christians? I don't appreciate my Lord and Savior being depicted by a bottle of liquor, so yeah, I'm offended. Assholes.

      • None

        So then why did you open the gallery?

        Do you go into a sex store, open up a pornographic magazine and then inform the other patrons of the store that you are offended by the magazines content??

        Exactly

      • http://twitter.com/GermanDoerksen @GermanDoerksen

        I'm sorry, but you really shouldn't be offended by this. It's a depiction, don't open the gallery then obviously? Maybe you should've read Bob's statement before you opened it. So… why are you here again?

      • OpenYourMind, Quaid

        Wrote this below, but it applies to you as well. By celebrating what is essentially a holiday cobbled together from much older pagan winter solstice holidays, with pagan symbols (like the trees, wreaths, holly, mistletoe, etc. ), you're likely mocking your "lord and savior" even more so by celebrating the modernized christimas holiday. Also, Jesus (if he existed) was not born in December. Learn about the history of your own religion, please.

        Happy Saturnalia everyone, again!

        • TheMoose03

          I completely agree. Most people have no idea that Christianity has been combined with paganism. Sad that they don't even know what they're celebrating.

        • Underbaker

          Yep it is true, early Christians picked this date because it was already a celebrated holiday by most in that age, little did they know how popular Christianity would become and just swallow the other holidays up. Do you think Lincoln and Washington would feel mocked that we celebrate their birthdays on the wrong day as a holiday? I know I ofter celebrate mine and my children's birthdays on the weekend closest to it and we don't feel mocked because of it. Most schooled people will admit that some dude named Jesus did exist around the time frame indicated in the Bible. As to him being God, that is a matter of faith.

          • Blue Xmas

            Not necessarily true. There is actually very little contemporary evidence for the Jesus Christ figure we know today. The best we can say is there was probably a very charismatic rabbi who lived around that time. In fact, early preachers of Christianity did not speak of Christ and the events of his life as actual earth-bound events.

            • Underbaker

              I was under the impression that most of the New Testament was written within the century of the crucifixion and the main gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) were from the namesakes or just one generation removed. They pretty much describe earth-bound events.

              • Blue Xmas

                They were mostly written between 30-80 years later and some as 165 AD and were almost certainly not written by the named authors. I am not saying that the Jesus figure didn't exist in some way, but there is no evidence to support supernatural claims.
                What historians need to accept the existence of him and the miracles written about is contemporary evidence- that is, multiple sources from around 33 AD that have independently written down corresponding events. Unfortunately, there is just very little written evidence at all from that time. We can verify people like Pilate because they were obviously in the public sphere.
                Not trying to be Debbie Downer or challenge anyone's faith, just here with some research.

      • ptwhaler

        cool story bro

    • VedHead77

      Why the thumbs down for Head Chef? I think he/she was just rhetorically explaining what he/she knew that people like "hMMMM" would say. Oh, and thanks to "hMMMM" for proving that Bob's statement was necessary.

  • GOD

    THIS IS SUPER cereal!!!!!!

  • Andy Valentine

    #12 – Bacon makes everything better

  • ThatGuy

    I didn't do three tours of duty in Iraq to come home to a supposedly christian nation and have the birth of my lord mocked. Come on, chive…

    • shanemcguire88

      so you're gonna be THAT guy.. huh..

    • http://www.facebook.com/Burnsone850 Jeremy Burns

      Actually you went over there 3 times because you were fighting for a religiously free america. I thank you for those tours also but you have to remember that America was founded by people trying to better their lives and escape religious persecution! Also people mock even other religions holiday season traditions why are christians the only who are off limits? Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

    • Maavus

      I also thank you for your service and welcome you home, but America is not a Christian Nation… it is supposed to be a nation of freedom. Freedom of relgion, of speech, of ideas and of its people. In some cases, the idea of the nativity is being mocked when used for advertising, but when someone builds their own, even with toy action figures, the idea is present but now with a bit of fun.

      • GrabIt

        No guys he said he DIDNT do three tours in Iraq etc. I want to know what he WAS doing

    • Bpierson85

      God invented the Platypus I believe he has a sense of humor.

    • Dick Salad

      Your not the only person that's done multiple combat tours. You knew what this post entailed and you believe your opinion is better than everyone else's? You think serving your country entitles you to force others to adhere to your religious beliefs? That's funny I served with thousands upon thousands of military members to preserve other peoples personal beliefs, not my own. Way to go bud…

        NAILED IT!

    • Slappy McGee

      If I'm not mistaken, this is sarcasm. Touche, ThatGuy.

    • OpenYourMind, Quaid

      Well, by celebrating what is essentially a holiday cobbled together from much older PAGAN winter solstice holidays, with pagan symbols (like the trees, wreaths, holly, mistletoe, etc. ), you're likely mocking your "lord" even moreso. But, I'm sure you're too stubborn to actually learn the history of your own goddamn religion anyway, so what the fuck, right? Let's just be angry about something.
      Happy Saturnalia everyone!
