Obama Nativity Figurine Popular in Italian Shops... (Unbelievable)
CNS News ^ | Nov 12th, 2012

Posted on 11/12/2012 8:02:35 PM PST by TaraP

(CNSNews.com) – Figurines of President Barack Obama are being put in nativity scenes in shops in Naples, Italy for the Christmas season.

Craftsman Marco Ferrigno told Reuters on Nov. 7 that Obama’s reelection sparked the production.

"Every time a major event occurs we create a new figurine and today after Obama's victory, we have made a new figurine of Obama and will put him in our ideal nativity scene,” Ferrigno said.

Reuters reported that the shop keepers said bargain hunters could get a “big discount” on figurines of GOP candidate Mitt Romney.

Italian fans of Obama said his likeness in the nativity scenes is a portrayal of how important his role is in today's world, according to Reuters.

There used to be this thing called...blasphemy. I guess that was in the “old normal” though.

Oh, I dont know. They are depicting Obie Wanna-be Cracka as one of the wisemen, complete with crown.

Someday the Boy-King WILL bow his knee and CONFESS who the Real King is.

Kinda prophetic if you ask me.

Before I look at the comments and pics I will answer your question.

YES.

Oh you mean the donkey that was used as transport?
I don’t know, but I stick by my original answer.

I would like to get a Catalan Obama caganer. You know, one of their folk traditions is that they do this one nativity scene figure that’s crouching, pants down, pooping. Originally, the figure was a folk-dressed Catalan peasant, but with the modern consumer age, they have all kinds of specialty and celebrity caganers, so yeah, pooping Obamas are an actual thing. Or perhaps I should say “Obamas pooping Obamas”.

Many nativity scenes include sheep and camels, so they added a jackass. Whats the problem?

Search: "Apostle Obama" and you'll see what's going on behind the curtain.
It's almost become a movement. Just give it another year and there will be
churches built to worship the Boy-King. I'm not kidding.

If they put this Nativity scene on a public square in the USA I’ll bet they wouldn’t be forced to take it down.

Good idea, since Obama intends to see if America can be fed on two fish and a five loaves of bread.
