Indy Church 'Detains' Jesus, Mary, Joseph to Protest Trump Immigration Policy


Nativity statues of the baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph, which usually mark Christmas, were incarcerated behind a barbed-wired-topped, chain-link fence on the lawn of Monument Circle's Christ Church Cathedral



Indy Star reported:
 Jesus, Mary and Joseph were incarcerated behind wire fence on the lawn of the cathedral of the Episcopal Church's Indianapolis Diocese.

The caged holy family protests President Trump's zero-tolerance policy, which has resulted in holding families arrested near the U.S.-Mexico border in detention centers, said the Rev. Stephen Carlsen, dean and rector of Christ Church Cathedral.

"I know what the Bible said," Carlsen said. "We're supposed to love our neighbors as ourselves."

The Rev. Lee Curtis, who also serves at Christ Church and came up with the idea for the demonstration, said the biblical trio was a family of refugees seeking asylum in Egypt after Jesus' birth
