Dust STorm......says.... Also show us where the Pope said everyone should get rid of nativity scenes.<quoted text>
Define "Declared" Please post his exact words in context and his reasoning. Please do not post what some article posted. Show us the page number. Also show us where the Pope said everyone should get rid of nativity scenes. Could it be he offered a scholarly and balanced view? Could it be that based on his research it his opinion? Did he say it was a fact that must be believed? You would think most Protestants would be happy with no images of any kind.
The reality is Mikey is yet again you are inserting inflammatory nonsense. Do you know his sources for his research? Do you have access to all the writings in the Vatican Archives? No, Mikey you just want to throw out a Canard card to stir up more nonsense.
Michael says.....I never posted to get rid of nativity scenes. I posted that the Pope has stated that with his research that NOTHING is mentioned in the scriptures of animals being present or angels singing at the birth of Jesus. Therefore the pope stated in his new book that they were just traditions added over the centuries as many traditions were added overtime.
If there were no animals present or angels singing then why place them in the nativity scene? Thats what I said.
....Pope in his new book - he also said that, contrary to the traditional Nativity scene, there were no oxen, donkeys or other animals at Jesus's birth.
