 A nativity scene outside a Southern California church is raising some eyebrows.  Instead of the baby Jesus,  it features a bloodied sculpture of Trayvon Martin. Critics on Facebook are blasting the sculpture, calling it ?sacrilegious. Claremont United Methodist church is known for its controversial nativity scenes. Previous ones have featured Mary and Joseph as a homeless couple and as war refugees.   The sculpture will stay up through January 5th.
