Vatican Crib Crisis

This is the crib at St. Peters’ Square, Vatican City, this year. The Times reports:

The St Peter’s Square crib supposedly depicts the seven corporal works of mercy — Catholic acts of penance and charity that include clothing the naked. But traditionalists have suggested that it is a subversive diorama, with the muscular figure in need of clothing described on social media as languid and “vaguely homoerotic”.

Oh ease up. Christmas is for everybody.
