Church makes Trayvon Martin Nativity Scene
Church Creates a Nativity Scene Featuring Life-Sized Trayvon Martin Bleeding from His Chest

The death of Trayvon Martin affected millions of people in a lot of different ways. It also had a multitude of inspirational manifestations, including art, music and videos. One manifestation has gotten a great deal of attention and it’s been controversial.


A church in California did a Trayvon Martin Nativity Scene, which has gotten the attention of the community. The leaders explained the scene by saying that “we have to take a look at the violence” according to TheBlaze.com.

Claremont United Methodist Church outside Los Angeles has put out a display that includes a life-size representation of Martin, with blood coming out of his chest. The person who did it is John Zachary, who has done the nativity scenes for the church for many years.

John has done other non-traditional scenes in the past, including the representation of Mary and Joseph as a homeless couple, as illegal immigrants. He also also presented Mary as a black woman in prison with a baby.

“I’ve tried to make them contemporary issues that are provocative as they relate to the Nativity story,” Zachary said in an interview on Youtube. “I think that from our privileged point of view we’ve come to see the Nativity as a representation of something that is comfortable and present and wonderful in our life and I want to make it something that Jesus would have taught and something that is thought-provoking and something that is a contemporary issue about social justice.”

He calls the most recent work “A Child is Born, a Son is Given,” and wants it to spark conversation about gun violence in America. He says that the story also relates to the biblical story of the killing of infants by King Herod.

“As we celebrate the birth of Christ I think it’s important that we think about all those that don’t have the privilege to celebrate with us,” Zachary said.

Trayvon was a worthless dog that deserved to be euthanized.

^ it's not .. and those types of views are not encouraged.

I initially sided more with Trayvon.. because I knew the type zimmerman was.. guy who can't mind his own business with a hero complex. and time has proven me right.. the guy just keeps getting into trouble.

RE: Church makes Trayvon Martin Nativity Scene
Judging from Trayvon's real life history (not the bullshit US media narrative), he was a future death row inmate waiting to happen.

Part time drug dealer. Was caught at school with burglary tools in his possesion. BRAGGED about punching out a bus driver on social media. All this by age 17. This is all documented, all you have to do is google it.

Not only that, but he ASSAULTED George Zimmerman first, punching his face down into the pavement, and in all likelihood might have killed him unless Zimmerman had a gun in his possession.

But WAHHH HE BE A GOOD BOY, you say? no. He is a piece of shit who deserved to get his brains blown out that day. You try to kill a man and live a life of iniquity before you are old enough to purchase cigarettes? Prepare to scream in eternal torment as your soul plunges forever into Hell.

Conservatives ought to have no patience for the worthless children of single mothers. Make a permanent example out of people like this.
