Because these guys have lost him!
I thought that once you had found Jesus, he was supposed to stay with you for always! Apparently not so much.
Yes, it’s an asshole thing to do to steal stuff from a private display like this, but there’s just something about this that strikes me as funny. And it’s not like this hasn’t happened before – this is the third time that this church has had their “Baby Jesus” vanish. This time they had it tied down with fishing line, and somebody cut it. Next year I suggest bolting it down. (Because nailing it down would probably be in bad taste. :P)
I think this is likely just a youthful prank, some teenager collecting the things. If it were a serious protest, you’d think there’d be damage to the rest of it, and there isn’t. If I were inclined to mess with this kind of thing, which I’m not, but if I were, I think I’d leave something else in place of the baby, like a statue of Ganesh or the FSM. Or I’d put a silly costume on the baby or something. Just stealing it would be boring.
