It seems that Muslims aren't the only religious group upset about the recent Top Gear holiday special. According to The Digital Journal and iAfrica, Christians have now come out against the show. While Muslims found issue with hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May all donning the traditional headwear of Muslim women, Christians are more riled about the episode's closing manger scene. After the trio of presenters made their way from Iraq to Bethlehem, they came up on a miniature baby Stig tucked away in a manger. The clip was meant to parody the nativity scene with Clarkson, Hammond and May all portraying the three wise men and Mini-Me Stig filling in for baby Jesus. Apparently, that bit of blasphemy was enough to ruffle a few feathers.

As usual, neither Top Gear nor the BBC have responded to the kerfuffle surrounding the show or its content.

      They need to watch South Park [and Family Guy as well].

      Are these adults seriously as immature as that Ginger teenager who started ranting on YouTube about South Park discriminating against Ginger people? ..better known as CopperCab?

      I loved the episode. There is too much political correctness these days. Both Christians and Muslims need to grow a set.

      I'm a moderate muslim living in the most moderate Muslim country in the world; Egypt
      I just want to say that NIKAB IS NOT THE traditional Muslim women wear ,infact there is many campains now to prohibit nikab, also men wearing nikab has been used as a funny gig in zillion arab show and movie so I think its ok .

        Re doctor3omda2006 - Very well said Sir and a common view shared with my many Muslims friends in the UK. France are trying to ban it and are getting a huge amount of flak because of it. I have no problem with a head scarf but the Nikab just looks oppressive. If you watch the programme or any other related to a Muslim Country you rarely see it worn.

        On a lighter note and this is a joke, as a Englishman I wouldn't dream of walking around as a ' Knight Templar' just back from the Crusades, it would be a bit awkward driving my Landrover in Chain Mail and it would go rusty in the rain! I do however often wear a smoking jacket and cravat after supper!

      I watched the episode last night and was kinda dissapointed. After reading the Muslims and Christians were offended, I was expecting, well, more to be offended about...

      It was a great episode as usual, I just wish I didn't hear anything about it positive or negative before watching because my expectations were maybe a little too high...

      I thought the episode was rather tame compared to a lot of them they get flack for...
