NAPLES, Italy, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- A vendor spokesman in Naples, Italy, says police shut down a shopping area offering nativity figurines, including one of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama.

The unidentified spokesman said police shut down the Via San Gregorio Armeno shopping area of the city in an attempt to stop certain open-air vendors who are suspected of operating without authorization, the Italian news agency, ANSA, reported Wednesday.

Among the nativity statue offerings set to be offered by the Christmas vendors were ones featuring the U.S president-elect. Also included in the holiday theme are Inter Milan soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his coach, Jose Mourinho.

Model Carla Bruni, wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, also has a nativity statue in her honor, as does Sarkozy and Naples soccer star Ezequiel Lavezzi.

ANSA said the vendor dispute was settled after negotiations between vendors and local officials, leaving legal vendors to once again offer their celebrity holiday wares.

All of these celebrities as stand-ins for the holy family and nobody cares, but if you draw a flattering picture of Mohammed, it’s go time.

That’s nuts. I’ve also seen nativity scenes with cats and dogs in place of the humans. To me, that is sacrilegious.

90% of all shops in Naples and the Surrounding areas are owned or run or made to pay monthly bribes by the Camorra (Mafia of Naples).

The people really do want to throw God/Jesus away and embrace a fallible human “savior” who pimps out Change/Hope for a living.

Next planet please.
