BEHOLD a nativity scene to gladden the hearts of politically correct Christmas killjoys everywhere.

It is TOTALLY PC — but yule be forgiven for thinking it is more silent FRIGHT than Silent Night.

Sun reader Jon Gledstone re-worked the traditional stable scene to back our crusade to save Christmas from PC busybodies and health and safety fanatics.

And he sent us a copy after we published a tongue-in-cheek feature on the PC perils of nativity.

Jon is using the picture to decorate his own Christmas cards — and it is packed with barmy PC touches. A muzzle-wearing sheep promotes veganism, while another advertises British meat so non-vegetarians aren’t offended.

An angel wears a high visibility jacket — while a banner proclaims: “Atheism is OK too.” Mary and Joseph sport hard hats beside a “hand washing facility”.

A wheelchair ramp with luminous safety markings leads to the stable, where the three wise men arrive after passing through an airport-style metal detector.

Overhead a Fathers For Justice demonstrator is clad as Batman — while Wonder Woman represents MOTHERS For Justice.

Jon’s hilarious card comes with the greeting: “Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practised within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.”

Jon, 26, from Hertford, declared: “I wanted to point out what something as traditional as a nativity scene would look like once the PC brigade got at it.

“The Sun has highlighted so many ridiculous examples of political correctness gone mad.”

We have highlighted a ban on DECORATIONS in case they offend other faiths, a council veto on high street CELEBRATIONS, and kids being made to sing PC versions of festive SONGS at a school party.

Jon groaned: “I’ve heard numerous stories of firms vetting Christmas cards so they won’t offend any possible person or group. At least mine won’t offend anyone.”
