Oh boy, have a bunch of Catholics and Family first NZ got their collective knickers in a twist over this bill board.
In a country where in shops otherwise amply supplied with Christmas decorations it is near impossible to buy a Nativity set, the secretary managed to find just 2 after looking through 3 shopping centres and 2 malls, both missing shepherds.
You would think that they would be happy that this is causing so much comment while reminding the ignorant who Christ is.
To add to the irony that bill board was put up by and outside St Matthew's-in-the-City, a large Anglican church in central Auckland.
As for the Atheists and Agnostics - some people really do need to research some of "non-religious" Christmas customs that many of them hold dear.
I dear say some will lose their fondness of Santa Claus aka the fourth century Bishop of Myra, candy canes, decorated trees, wreaths etc as a result.
