I suppose Water Cooler is the place for this.
I see these Nativity Scenes, on yards and in photos, and I always wonder what kind of mother Mary was suppose to be! Here's a woman who has carried this life inside her for the usual nine months, and delivers her child safely into the world, and all she does is stick him in a box and stare at him. Where's the love? Wouldn't a healthy-minded mother want to hold her child close? Who cares if he's Divinely implanted, he's an infant!
Anyway, that's what I think of every year. Am I the only one who thinks that way?
Maybe she just stares at the baby because it was a product of her being rapped by.... well according to the mythology of God.... her "father". Must have been a very traumatic experience & the baby might just be a painful reminder. No wonder she always seems so morose.
