Twitter Is Loving This Nativity Scene With Two Gay Josephs

Well, Jesus DID have two dads.

An unconventional Nativity scene has captured Twitter's heart.

Comedian Cameron Esposito tweeted a picture of her neighbor's yard, which features two Josephs in the holy family. “Our neighbors’ two Joseph nativity is up & I’m beaming,” the out comic added in the caption.

The tweet quickly went viral, with more than 22,000 likes and 3,300 retweets. Some pointed out that Jesus technically did have two fathers, while others expressed joy at the miracle of gay fatherhood.

One commenter imagined how such a nativity set might have been coordinated with lesbian neighbors.

Another joked about a gay couple deciding what to wear in the creche.

Conservative Christians have mostly remained quiet about the two-dad Nativity, though there was some (faux) outrage.

Last year, an artist selling ornaments depicting queer Josephs and Marys had to pull his creations from Zazzle after facing backlash from a Christian anti-LGBT group.
