A Christmas Cartoon in the Middle of Summer: "Important People"

"Important People" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Description: The nativity scene will animals, foreigners, baby, straw, nobodies, unclean, and shit. No important people!

I love the Christmas story.

What strikes me most is the gospels' portrayal of the complete lack of important people around the birth of Jesus. No politicians or religious leaders were present, but were strategically omitted. In fact, they are adversaries to the good news.

Those present were rejected, scandalized, marginalized, foreign, and lowly folk in a humble setting.

I think the writers wrote the story in a way that depicted the impotency and predicted the eventual downfall of those in power.

They might have the power, but they don't have the presence.

This cartoon is on prints, greeting cards, and other stuff in my nakedpastorstore.
