Church Displays Bleeding Trayvon Martin Nativity Scene
breitbart ^ | Elizabeth Sheld

Posted on 12/26/2013 8:37:05 AM PST by Morgana

Outside the Claremont United Methodist Church is a nativity scene with a bleeding Trayvon Martin. The California Church has turned their nativity scene "into a piece of art that comments on our times" for the last seven years.

John Zachary, the artist, told me the acquittal in July of George Zimmerman, who fatally shot the 17-year-old African-American in 2012, struck him as a worthy subject for Christmas comment.

For one thing, the backdrop to the Christmas story is the slaughter by King Herod of all infants in Bethlehem, a barbarous attempt to kill the Messiah.

Can you imagine the complaints if a small white church had a black Jesus being lynched instead of crucified? It’s art!
But, if they’d think about it, it would be a stronger message than using Trayvon.

Libs still calling St. Trayvon a messiah. Yeah OK. So in other words if I attempted to kill them by bashing their heads into the cement they would take it because attempted murder is holy.

....Zachary described that when looking for pictures of Trayvon “one of the teenager lying dead on the pavement particularly tore at him. ‘What if Jesus was lying there bleeding to death? I was kind of thinking of that,’ Zachary said.”...

Uh, hey zach, tray-boy-eee weren’t in no way similar to Jesus. Not sure how that came to your feeble little brain. Are you “drankin’” something. What didiots.

What make Trayvon more important then all the other dead black men? Chicago had 5 murders on a Thursday, 10 on Friday and if we're lucky 20 on Saturday.

Interesting that the barbaric slaughter of infants by King Herod is mentioned.

I wonder if these liberals are able to detect a similarity between that and the barbaric slaughter of infants in modern times?

Trayvon received a fatal consequence for behavior that the left wants to occur without consequence.

That’s what they’re so incensed about in this case.

Lying dead on the pavement?

He was lying on the grass, not on the pavement.

Is ol’ Zach lying to us?

Before I moved from NC, one day there was a news story about two brothers killed in two separate incidences of drug violence on the same night. Their mother was on television, crying and screaming, “Dey don’t care nuttin’ ‘bout our black kids.”

Where was she when they were still alive? Why don’t these women ever accept any responsiblity in the deaths of their children, who are running around unsupervised with guns and drugs while punching out whitey?

Sad, but I see no hope for the future of our country, as this human waste will one day outnumber the productive members of society.

The article says: “Zachary described that when looking for pictures of Trayvon “one of the teenager lying dead on the pavement particularly tore at him.”

So, what I was saying is that when he SAID he was looking at some photos and saw one of Martin lying on the pavement, he was lying. There are NO photos anywhere of Martin lying on the pavement.

That is what I don’t understand. From their hatred, it would seem that they resent being here. If their ancestors had remained in Africa, most of them would never have even been born.

All they have to do is look at the slaughters of their people that have happened over the centuries. Theirs is a life of privilege and opportunity here, but many choose to simmer in a pool of hatred and plan ways to get their reparations.

'What if Jesus was lying there bleeding to death?

Maybe if he'd billed Himself as the @nolimitJewboy and tried beating a creepy-ass gentile to death who just happened to be legally carrying a concealed dagger.

INDEED.

The guy sounded...in the video...like a slow witted 12 year old on dope..but no slow witted 12 year old would have been so van gloriously pompous as to pretend to know what Jesus “would have taught” ...as he said.

I surprised that “church” didnt explode “on ITS OWN”.... Christmas!

They will outnumber the productive members of society if we continue to give them all sorts of welfare. They start having kids in their teens and have been doing so for close to fifty years. This gives them an advance over us since most of us don’t have children until we are well into our twenties or thirties. Welfare should be cut back until they have to live on beans and rice and no more luxuries such as Air Jordans. Anything that can be done on the local or state level to cut back on their welfare goodies would go a long way to reducing the problem. Hopelly the dummies in the blue states will eventually wake up and realize that the Democrats did this to us in the form of Lyndon Johnson. One thing that we should give them for free, of course is birth control.

They likely already outnumber productive members of society, they already cost more than we can afford. Hence the trillion dollar deficits.
