The Roman Catholic Bishop of Providence, Rhode Island expressed outrage on Facebook Tuesday morning after being exposed to a popular Twitter photo showing two pink-clad Josephs kneeling over the Baby Jesus with no Virgin Mary in sight.
While Esposito wrote,” Our neighbors’ two Joseph nativity is up & I’m beaming,” across the country the Catholic priest had another take.
“A Gay Nativity?” Tobin wrote on his Facebook page. “Just came across this photo of a ‘gay nativity’ scene — two Josephs dressed in pink watching over the Christ Child. How sad that someone believes it’s okay (or funny or cool) to impose their own agenda on the holy Birth of Jesus. Pray for those who did so, for their change of heart, and that Jesus will forgive this sacrilege, this attack on the Christian Faith.”
Tobin was not alone in finding the cheeky holiday display upsetting, with some of his followers — and Twitter users — complaining and one stating it encourages “pedophiles.”
The original tweet, Tobin’s Facebook response and assorted Twitter commenters trashing the display can be found below:

Leftists extol the placement of ‘two’ Josephs on someone’s front garden in clear mockery of the birth of Baby Jesus. No doubt to snub Christians who hold true to moral decency.The LGBTP(pedophile) movement is clearly leaving no stone unturned… https://t.co/07YbiwYnHU
