Vandals reportedly reassembled a nativity scene set up on a roundabout in Boadila del Monte, in the mountains north of Madrid, Spain.
According to Radio Madrid, the figures were reassembled into sexually suggestive poses. Mary was bent forward over Jesus’ crib in a position that suggested she was giving oral sex to Joseph. The animals were also placed in mating positions.
The local chapter of the conservative Popular Party is demanding an investigation and filed a criminal complaint.
“It constitutes a clear lack of respect for the religious beliefs and traditions of much of the population of the municipality,” a PP spokesman told Europa Press. “In addition to the vandalism, it is a clearly intentional offensive attack against religious freedom. We demand respect for the freedom of belief as an essential pillar of our coexistence and of our democratic system protected by our constitution.”
A town council-member reported that the nativity scene was restored to its original placement.
“We fixed it as soon as the vandalism was reported.” he said.
