Bring Your Can and Come See a Live Ass for Jesus

There was a story here about the Corporate Chaplains of America hosting a live nativity with live animals, (including a camel) and it was free if you brought a canned good for admission. Someone is also going to win a two-night-stay at a Myrtle Beach hotel, as well.

I’m not sure why CCA got all wadded up over the title, after all, the ass plays an important role in Christianity. “A donkey (or ass) and an ox typically appear in nativity scenes. Besides the necessity of animals for a manger, this is an allusion to Isaiah: “the ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib; but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider” Isaiah 1:3.” Source

So apparently, the Wake Forest live nativity will have a camel, but ain’t got no ass. Other supporting animals may play a role.

Corporate Chaplains of America objected to the title I wrote for their press release and asked to have the story removed. Done.
