Protesting immigration policy, Indianapolis church puts Jesus in cage

Jesus Christ is in a cage.

Nativity statues of the baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph, which usually mark Christmas, were incarcerated Tuesday on the lawn of Christ Church Cathedral behind a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire.

The Rev. Stephen Carlsen, dean and rector of the church on Monument Circle, said the caged Holy Family is a protest to President Trump’s zero-tolerance policy that is holding families in detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I know what the Bible said,” Carlsen said. “We’re supposed to love our neighbors as ourselves.”
