Away From A Manger

This weekend my pastor preached a sermon by that name, on the current rash of cases where people steal baby Jesus dolls/figurines from nativity displays.  So much of this has happened lately, that Wikipedia has an article on the crime.  You probably think this is another attempt to steal/discredit Christmas (Lord knows, liberals have been doing a lot of that lately), but as I listened, something else came to mind.  The trend could have something to do with falling birthrates in the US and the high cost of adoption; today I also heard of a proposed law in Russia that would ban adoptions of Russian children by Americans.  People without children of their own are getting desperate.
