A gay Christmas decoration showing a nativity scene with two Josephs has been slammed by outraged Christians.
The colourful hanging tree ornaments – on sale for £13 – also have a lesbian version with two Virgin Marys sitting beside a baby Jesus Christ, who is lying in a manger.
Campaign group Christian Concern has branded the decorations created by a California-based designer a ‘blasphemous attempt to rewrite the Christmas story’.
Chief executive Andrea Williams said: ‘These decorations are a desperate and ridiculous attempt to pretend that homosexual relationships are pure and holy.
‘They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby stoop to in order to try and normalise their behaviour?’
Ms Williams added: ‘God’s design is for children to grow up with a male and a female parent. The Lord Jesus was parented in this way, and this is what is best for children.
‘The LGBT lobby is not interested in the welfare of children but only in pursuing its own selfish agenda. Trying to rewrite the Christmas story is their latest self-deception.’
The images were created by Kittredge Cherry – and artist Mark Thaler, from California, designed the decorations for his company Pride and More. They are available to buy in the UK on Zazzle.co.uk.
