• Infant Discovered in Barn - Child Protective Services Launch Probe

    Nazareth Carpenter Being Held On Charges Involving Underage Mother

    (Dec 26) Associated Press. Bethlehem, Judea - Authorities were today
    alerted by a concerned citizen who noticed a family living in a barn.

    Upon arrival, Family Protective Service personnel, accompanied by
    police, took into protective care an infant child named Jesus, who had
    been wrapped in strips of cloth and placed in a feeding trough by his
    12-year old mother, Mary of Nazareth.

    During the confrontation, a man identified as Joseph, also of
    Nazareth, attempted to stop the social workers from carrying out their
    duty. Joseph, aided by several local shepherds and three unidentified
    foreigners, tried to forestall efforts to rescue the child, but were
    restrained by the police.

    The three foreigners have been held for questioning under suspicion of
    being terrorists, as they are illegal aliens from eastern countries,
    were travelling without passports, and were in possession of gold and
    other suspicious substances, possibly drugs.

    They resisted arrest saying that they had been warned by their "God,
    Father" to avoid officials in Jerusalem and to return quickly to their
    own country. The chemical substances in their possession will be
    tested. The owner of the barn is also being held for questioning.

    The manager of Bethlehem Inn faces possible revocation of his license
    for violating health and safety regulations by allowing people to stay
    in the stable. Civil authorities are also investigating the zoning
    violations involved in maintaining livestock in a commercially-zoned
    district. The location of the minor child will not be released, and
    the prospect for a quick resolution to this case is doubtful.

    Asked about when Jesus would be returned to his mother, a Child
    Protective Service spokesperson said, "The father is middle-aged and
    the mother is extremely underage. We are checking with officials in
    Nazareth to determine what their legal relationship is, and Joseph may
    be charged with pedophilia. Joseph has stated that he took Mary from
    her home in Nazareth because of a census requirement and is therefore
    being charged with the abduction of a minor. As she was obviously
    pregnant when they left, investigators are looking into other possible
    reasons for their departure.

    Joseph is being held without bond on charges of molestation,
    kidnapping, child endangerment, and statutory rape. Mary was taken toEnvoyer
    the Bethlehem General Hospital where she is being examined by doctors.
    Charges may also be filed against her for reckless endangerment. She
    will also undergo psychiatric evaluation because of her statements
    that she is a virgin and that the child is from God.

    The director of the psychiatric wing said, "It's not so much the
    paranoid delusions themselves that are problematical, but her
    fantasies adversely affect the safety and well-being of others - in
    this case her child - so we must consider her a danger to others. The
    unidentified drugs at the scene didn't help her case, but I'm
    confident that with the proper therapy regiment we can get her back on
    her feet."

    A spokesperson for the governor's office said, "Their treatment of the
    child was inexcusable, and the involvement of these others
    frightening. They appear to have been planning to start one of those
    weird religious cults. There is much we don't know about this case,
    yet, but for the sake of the child's welfare and the public safety,
    you can be assured that we will pursue this matter to the end."
