Red Deer United Church’s “inclusive” Nativity scene excludes white faces

David MenziesMission Specialist

CBC ran a story about a display in Calgary that’s being described as a “different take” on the nativity scene. If you drop by the Red Deer Lake United Church you’ll come across an “inclusive, cross-cultural display that includes an Indigenous wise man.”


Reverend Nick Coates told CBC he was expecting congregants and others to push back, but everyone has loved the updated and re-imagined version of Christ’s birth.

Of course they do! This is the United Church after all, whose unity seems to be driven by the pursuit of wackiness as you’ll see when I show you the “wise” men and updated gifts.

Shockingly the Baby Jesus is still depicted as a baby.

And don’t fret about cultural appropriation outrage! Reverend Coates notes, “By contemporizing some of the traditional imagery and by decolonizing some of the characters, the hope is to create a scene that sparks curiosity, engagement and wonder... I hope this nativity can cause people to stop, engage and wonder what does Christmas really mean.”

Call me an ignorant crank, but I thought Christmas was about the birth of Christ?

The Reverend Coates further notes that this nativity-scene makes for honky-free territory given that all of the characters are depicted as brown-skinned.

Now, that’s diversity!

If you happen upon this display, don’t call the cops. This is NOT a nativity scene that’s been defaced by hooligans, but rather, one that’s been made culturally diverse in accordance with guidelines trumpeted by the Church of the Liberal Party of Canada!

Merry Christmas one and all, or whatever it is that the United Church is calling “Christmas” these days.

For several decades now the United Church has been going on a downhill slide away from Christianity so this nativity scene does not shock me at all.

Of course, the United Church is not the only Western Christian church on the slippery downhill slope, each one on a different place on the downhill slope.

The Angel was white, wasn’t she?
Christmas is derived from the two words Christ Mass, I think.

I agree with David. This is blasphemy. It also makes sense to have Middle Eastern Jewish characters in the nativity scene. But the United Church of Canada is an apostate organization with zero understanding of biblical inerrancy.

Menzoid, your ‘snap-shot’ from out of time, is a very sad, but very real and hard look at, and representation of, the destruction of the West…from within.
That travesty of a display offends me. As much as the "piss christ’ does.
The united Church appears more like pagans and devil worshippers today, than Christian…the Catholic Pope, et al, as well!
It is very sad watching the dismantling and destruction of my country and the Western world like this…especially by a herd of irrational and delusional lefty useful idiots!

What do you expect from a church that is full of communists and perverts.

Red Deer Lake is not in or near Red Deer the city. Red Deer Lake is just outside of Calgary to the south west.

give it up!
canada is DONE as are what is left of we canadians BECAUSE WE ARE COWARDS, YELLOW BELLIES AND TRAITORS ourselves. Clearly we would all rather DIE THAN BE ACCUSED OF/CALLED RACISTS OR ISLAMOPHOBES!
well the good news is canada is NO LONGER A NATION AND WE CANUKS ARE ON OUR WAY TO FULL ERADICATION VIA MOHAMMAD TRUDEAUS GENOCIDE AGENDA FOR US VIA HIS NEW INVADING ISLAMIC ARMIES ALL EXEMPT FROM THE LAWS AND ALL ARMED TO WIPE US OUT WITH THE U.N.s FULL APPROVAL IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS!
YOu were too busy shopping and tucking your tails between your legs to stop him (and he TOLD US ALL VERY CLEARLY WHAT HE WAS AND WHAT HIS PLANS WERE FOR US AND CANADA LONG BEFORE HE WAS ELECTED AND STILL YOU ALL GAVE HIM A MAJORITY!!)
canadians get what they have coming to them now as they have proved themselves too STUPID TO LIVE and these uneducated barbarians have more balls than we do as they slaughter and rape their way across every western nation – EXCEPT THE U.S., AUSTRALIA AND OTHER NATIONS WHO REFUSED TO SIGN ON TO THE U.N. MIGRANT INVASION AND OVERTHROW as we ALLOWED MOHAMMAD TRUDEAU AND HIS PUPPETEER, MOHAMMAD BUTTS TO DO!
God help your children because you clearly didn’t give a damn much less a thought about them these past 3 plus years!
