Unfortunately, this this seems to happen every year. This "war on Christmas" must stop. Let's take back our country before it is too late.

"The church doesn’t place [the baby Jesus] in the manger until Christmas." How about the wise men / magi? Do they wait for epiphany (the traditional commemoration of their arrival) to put them out there? Serious question. Maybe this display is only Joseph, Mary, & Jesus.

Good old Catholic guilt at work.

Before jumping to "war on Christmas" conclusions, it's worth noting that the church is directly between a couple of St. Joe bars and St. Ben's student housing, I'm willing to bet it was a couple college students (likely even Catholic) who woke up the next morning to find the figurines in their living room. I really doubt there was any malicious intent.
