The Vatican is facing mixed reviews for its unconventional nativity scene this year. The display features an out-of-this-world theme based on the lunar landings in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy echoes the appalled cry of many:
This monstrosity is the Vatican’s nativity scene. Nothing like ugly robot space aliens to undermine the beauty & humanity of the Holy Family at Christmas time, during a pandemic when we need our timeless Church traditions more than ever. Thanks, Pope Francis! pic.twitter.com/6YMSE4TbTy
