    ••OMG!!!!••

    •••Madame Tussaud's Pop Icon Nativity Scene •••


    (CBS/AP) People generally chuckle at the lineup of celebrities Madame Tussauds. But deck the figures in religious garb, and some of the smiles turn to sneers.

    Christian leaders on Wednesday denounced a Nativity scene at a London wax museum featuring soccer star David Beckham and his wife Victoria, a former Spice Girl, as the parents of Jesus.
    But the Anglican Church Times called the display, "just pathetic," and Bishop Michael Marshall, in an interview with CBS News Correspondent Mark Phillips, said: "It's a pity that our generation seems to be able to maul and smudge everything."

    The waxwork tableau at Madame Tussaud's museum includes actors Hugh Grant and Samuel L. Jackson as shepherds and Australian disco diva Kylie Minogue as an angel.

    The Vatican was not amused, calling the tableau tasteless. A spokesman said it was unacceptable to have celebrities representing Jesus, Joseph or Mary.

    But its not only the main characters' portrayal the church has a problem with, Phillips reports. What's worse, they say, is who has been chosen to depict the three wisemen: Tony Blair, the Queen's husband Prince Phillip and, perhaps to add injury to insult, George W. Bush!!!. :ah: :laugh:

    To critics, the museum says it's sorry, but the nativity will stand through Christmas.

    Most visitors to the museum were more light-hearted, reports CBS News Correspondent Tom Fenton.

    "I'm a great believer in the Lord, but I don't think He worries about things like this," one said.

    "What I'm more concerned about is that George W. Bush appears to be a 'wise' man," quipped another...

    Well i'd be more inclined to view the display as hilarious rather than running to the nearest church and rattling off 10 hail mary's....too many religious nuts in the world today :crazy:

    I'd love to see a photo of any part of the display... must be Madame Tussauds is careful of their displays....

    When we were in London we went to go see it.... but even though we got there early the lines were LONG! I didn't know until after that you could pre-buy tickets :damn:... 'sokay though... shopping at Harrod's was MUCH more important!!
