  • I saw on the news this morning that a company in Italy is making a nativity scene with the Obamas as the figurines. I'm not sure what figures they are, but either way, its not right.

  • Oh no...bad bad bad. Why are people doing this? They're making him out to be some great god or saint or something. He's just another man...with darker skin.

  • Boy, what an uproar it would have caused if someone used the Bush family in the Nativity scene instead of the Obama family. But since it's Obama, no one says anything bad about it.

  • They do all sorts of crazy things with their presepes. When I lived in Italy, there were Bush ones too. I remember seeing one with Bush and Clinton. That was back in 2001 though. I love the presepes. They are amazing works of art.

  • Yea, to each their own... I don't get it. Nor do I want to, but if some people do (Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc...) then to each their own...

  • I too think it is wrong...on several levels...particularly since The Obama's DON'T CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS!!!! Seriously, they don't.

    Can't wait to see the White House NEXT Christmas! ::rolls eyes:: "Happy Kwanzaa!"
