Thou Shalt Not Steal The Baby Jesus


Perhaps someone was in dire need of a personal saviour.

This story gives scope for a wicked cartoon but seeing how it's crimbo I shall go easy on the cultists, I've no doubt they will be visiting in their droves once the header is picked up by Google.

To my readers and all free thinkers out there I wish you a happy Christmas and I do hope Santa doesn't forget your bike.

A statue of the infant Jesus on display near Miami in Florida is being fitted with a Global Positioning System device after the original figurine was stolen.

The near-life-size figure forms part of a nativity scene in Bal Harbour city.

The original vanished three weeks ago, despite being bolted to the ground.

Dina Cellini, who oversees the display, says the statues of Mary and Joseph will also be fitted with a satellite tracking device to deter thieves.

She said: "I don't anticipate this will ever happen again, but we may need to rely on technology to save our saviour."

A Jewish lawyer, Jeffrey Harris, from Cincinnati, who read about the theft on the internet, has donated the new Jesus figurine in the Founders Circle area of the city.source
