Let me point out here that stealing the Baby Jesus probably ranks pretty high on the Hell-bound sin list. If you think you're going to get away with it, think again. Not just Santa is watching, buddy.
I figure the kidnappers generally fall into one of three categories:
- The idiots who think it's a great gag and have nothing better to do after a few shots of Jack.
- The radicals who think that the Baby Jesus shouldn't be there until Christmas Eve and have the need to make a statement.
- The wing nuts who are anti-everything ... anti-Christian, anti-Christmas, anti-human.
So, in the Spirit of the Season, many churches and organizations are giving the gift of technology and have fitted the Baby Jesus with a GPS tracking device.
Well ... this simplifies things, doesn't it?
Now, when I get the knock on the door and I'm asked "Have you found Jesus?" I will be able to whip out my handy dandy BlackBerry, click on the icon and Voila!
It will certainly be easier than leaving Post-It Notes all over the place, won't it?
