A clothing store on Robertson Boulevard is causing a stir with a new window display — a nativity scene with very sexual undertones.
Madison clothing store, located at W. 3rd Street and Robertson Boulevard, has put up a nativity scene featuring a scantily-clad Virgin Mary sprawled on the ground with a glittery, golden baby Jesus in her lap…
Some people have complained about the display, calling it risqué.
A group that works across the street from the store said sex, their religion and shopping in a single tableau is too much for them to handle.
Said one woman, “The way they have presented Mary in a very provocative position with a baby in her crotch, and that baby is supposed to be Jesus… No.”
If my understanding of the history of clothing in the Middle East is accurate, it’s not especially likely that too many folks were wearing underwear back then, anyway. Right?
