If you were on Capitol Hill midday Thursday you probably saw something unusual; a donkey, two camels and a procession of people dressed in Biblical attire. The religious liberty advocacy group Faith and Action hosted their annual Christmas event in D.C. and N.Y.C. where actors and animals portray the Biblical figures of the original Christmas story. The N.Y.C. nativity scene was reported on by Fox and Friends but the rest of the media overlooked the familiar scene.
Reverend Patrick Mahoney of Faith and Action and president of the Christian Defense Coalition admitted to MRC Culture, that the media in particular were “trying to scrub faith away from the public square” and “compress” displays like this, but the general public always responds positively to their annual event and appreciates the heartwarming reminder at this very commercialized time of the year.
