Gay designer forced to remove Christmas tree decoration with two Josephs after Christian outrage

This Christmas tree decoration was removed by gay designer

A Christian group is outraged over a gay Christmas tree decoration with one showing two Josephs and the other showing two Virgin Marys.

The hanging tree ornaments, on sale for £13, imagines what if it was a same-sex couple that parented Jesus Christ.

Campaign group Christian Concern, a leading backer of homophobic causes in the UK, were furious.

Chief executive Andrea Williams told Mail Online: ‘These decorations are a desperate and ridiculous attempt to pretend that homosexual relationships are pure and holy.

‘They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby stoop to in order to try and normalize their behavior?’

Williams added: ‘God’s design is for children to grow up with a male and a female parent. The Lord Jesus was parented in this way, and this is what is best for children.

‘The LGBT lobby is not interested in the welfare of children but only in pursuing its own selfish agenda. Trying to rewrite the Christmas story is their latest self-deception.’

Mark Thaler, a California-based artist, said: ‘Not everyone’s viewpoints are the same. People need to coexist and not judge one another.

‘It’s just an image. They need to focus on themselves and not worry about what everyone else is doing.’

But for Thaler, it’s no longer worth the trouble of keeping the products on the website. He decided to remove them ‘out of respect for his fellow humans’.

Other LGBTI-related products by Thaler are available on Zazzle.
