WHO stole the Baby Jesus from the display on Birmingham’s Chamberlain Square? They then replaced Baby Jesus with a garden gnome.

The Baby Jesus was installed by Birmingham City Council at the Frankfurt Christmas Market. The council spokesman says:

 “Someone has tampered with the nativity scene and we are trying to find out how it happened.”

A local offers the Birmingham Mail:

“I think it’s disgraceful. We are told we need to be considerate of every faith but that’s not showing any consideration for the Christian faith. My son’s in a reception class at school and I’m trying to teach him the right things – and there’s Jesus Christ represented as a garden gnome. It’s offensive and everyone around me who saw it thought the same.”
