A California Church Nativity Scene Depicts Bloody Trayvon Martin Instead Of Baby Jesus


Claremont church Nativity scene features Trayvon Martin

The Los Angeles Times reports of  a church in Southern California doing a nativity scene is featuring a bloody Trayvon Martin in place of the infant Jesus in an effort to stir a community conversation about gun violence.

The Claremont United Methodist Church was created by artist John Zachary. Martin is shown in a hoodie, slumped over and bleeding.

The church’s Rev. Dan Lewis says the scene featuring the Florida teenager whose shooting death captivated the nation was meant to be thought provoking.

The scene will remain in place at the church 35 miles east of Los Angeles through Jan. 5. This is just sad…
