santa-jesus-gpsI have often seen on Christmas cards, “Wise Men Still Seek Him.”

Well, they do if a shiny GPS is stuck to the ceramic Savior’s underbelly at some dingy church nativity scene near you.

Evidently, this is the new trend for the righteous – crime fighting paganistic ne’er-do-wells during the holidays by plastering a Tom-Tom or Garmin to the soft, exposed belly of baby Jesus.

Is there any part of stealing a baby Jesus that sounds like a good idea? It’s bad enough these sardonic dimwitted kids aren’t afraid to tempt God by swiping his son to feed their crack habit.

Now, they are bum rushing the Griswold’s home during the holidays, rummaging through the decor and causing jingle bells to ring until the cops show up.

Not exactly my idea of a Merry Christmas, but at least I know what GPS means: “God Protecting his Son”.

Giving up on old-fashioned padlocks and trust, a number of churches, synagogues, governments and ordinary citizens are turning to technology to protect holiday displays from pranks or prejudice. About 70 churches and synagogues eager to avoid the December police blotter jumped at a security company’s offer of free use of GPS systems and hidden cameras this month to guard their mangers and menorahs.

So, here’s my question: Does this give a whole new meaning to, “I have found the Lord.”
