Jesus has two daddies

After seeing some lovely pictures of gay and lesbian nativity scenes on Jesus in Love, I wanted my own. It took me two years to find a set I really loved, and finally I now have one. It's a Fisher Price nativity set, with an extra Joseph ordered from America. I'm not a Christian, I'm not religious, and I don't believe in God (the Christian god, that is); but I've always loved the nativity story. Celebrating the birth of a child to a loving family is always good, and we get to sing some of the best Christmas carols too: Away in a manger, Little donkey; The friendly beasts. Jesus was born into a loving family. If Patrick and I are ever lucky enough to have children, they'll be brought up in a loving family too.

I love your gay Nativity scene! I hope that you will allow me to share the "Jesus has 2 Daddies" on the Jesus in Love Blog -- with proper crediting and a link to your site, of course. And thanks for the link to my blog.

I'm glad that my gay and lesbian Nativity scenes inspired you. Some conservatives got very upset about them. My commentary said that love makes a family, but one right-winger even went so far as to say, "“ NOT the criteria for making a ‘Family’. A REAL Family is a MAN & a WOMAN producing a child or children.”

Anyway, didn't the Bible say that Jesus was born in a miraculous way, not the usual "man and woman" method?

In case anyone is interested, here's a direct link to my gay and lesbian Nativity scenes:

I would say love is the most important criteria for starting a family Xx
