Town That Is Clearly Anti-Awesome Tells Man To Take Down Zombie Nativity Scene

By  | 

An Ohio man who manages a haunted house was inspired to put up an interesting take on a nativity scene in his front yard: one made up of zombies. The town was not happy. No one wants to see a zombie baby Jesus, okay? Wait… I would actually enjoy that very much.

Jason Dixon told Fox 19, “I wanted a nativity scene and I worked with what I had. The neighbors don’t like it. My father hates it and anything bad that happens, he blames it on that. On the average we probably get 30 or 40 cars stop and taking pictures, getting out with their camera. People that follow zombie movies and stuff like that love it.”

The city notified Dixon and told him he had to take it down, but insisted it was a “zoning issue,” saying the manger takes up too much of the front yard. We all know that is a load of crap. If it was a traditional manger scene no one would have said a word.




I can hear the parents trying to explain this now, “No! Jesus is not a zombie! Oh, wait… He’s not the flesh-eating kind. But he does rise from the dead.” We all know religious people do not like it when their mythical beings are mocked. How dare he?

Forget that Atheists and others who do not believe in the Christ-narrative are bombarded with images of the nativity every year. No one cares about that. But don’t mess with the manger!

I wouldn’t choose this for my house, but I’m not much for lawn ornaments. I don’t think the town should be making such a big deal about it. It looks like it was a lot of work! Bah, humbug.
