Nativity scene shows baby Jesus surrounded by American mass shooting death tolls – KTRK

The Nativity scene is a symbol of peace at Christmas time, but at one Massachusetts church, a jarring message about deadly mass shootings in America is getting a lot of attention.

At St. Susanna’s Parish in Dedham, the figures of baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph are surrounded by the sobering reminder of the lives we lost in recent years to gun violence.

Virginia Tech. San Bernardino. Las Vegas. Sutherland Springs.

The death tolls are on display along with the cities and places that saw such horror unfold, WFXT reports.

“We were discussing the gun control issue and how it seems to be stagnated across the country,” says Father Stephen Josoma.

So Josoma and the church decided to do something about it.

“This is not the picture of Christmas peace we want to have in people’s minds for years to come,” Josoma said. “It can’t be this forever, it just had to change.”

The Second Season of ‘American Crime Story’ Will Investigate the Murder of Gianni Versace

For those hoping for a TV break from Ryan Murphy after American Horror Story: Cult, I have some bad news: Murphy’s particular brand of television will be back in January. The good news, however, is that it looks pretty damn good.

Building off of the Emmy-winning first season of American Crime Story, which tackled the murder trial of O.J. Simpson, Murphy’s anthology series will return to investigate another ’90s death that rocked the tabloids: the assassination of fashionista Gianni Versace by spree killer Andrew Cunanan.

The first trailer, which debuted Thursday night during the finale of AHS: Cult, shows off the new season’s stellar cast, including Edgar Ramirez as Versace, Darren Criss as Cunanan, Ricky Martin as Versace’s lover Antonio D’Amico, and Penelope Cruz as Versace’s sister, Donatella. Cruz, especially, looks like she’s having the time of her life, sporting a blond wig and a bizarre Italian accent

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ Releases Official Trailer

FX has released the trailer for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” which gives fans a glimpse of Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez as Donatella and Gianni Versace.

Season 2 of the anthology series from Ryan Murphy will explore the murder of Versace by spree killer Andrew Cunanan, who killed four people before Versace, and committed suicide eight days after Versace’s death.

Based on the book by Maureen Orth, the series stars Darren Criss as Cunanan, with Ricky Martin as Gianni Versace’s partner Antonio D’Amico.

The trailer shows some of the events leading up to Versace’s death, including the murder of Lee Miglin in Chicago and the arrival of Cunanan in Los Angeles.

“This world is wasted on me,” Cunanan narrates. “Yet this world also made you, Versace, into a star. You’re not better than me; we’re the same. The only difference is that you got

‘American Horror Story’ Edited Mass Shooting Scene Airs … But the Gore’s Still Online

Producers for “American Horror Story” made good on their promise to edit a mass shooting scene for this week’s episode, but the carnage can still be seen online.

FX aired “Mid-Western Assassin” Tuesday, and you can see they significantly pared it down to avoid showing anyone actually getting shot. You mostly just hear the victims.

The decision to make major cuts to the shooting scene came on the heels of the Vegas mass shooting. However, viewers can still use FX’s video-on-demand feature to watch the unedited version of the scene … where at least 3 people are shot onscreen.

How American Horror Story: Cult Handled a Mass Shooting After the Las Vegas Attack

This story contains spoilers about Tuesday’s episode of American Horror Story: Cult.

American Horror Story frequently bases its creepy fiction on real-life events and people, from actual murders to performers in genuine freak shows. But in its seventh season, American Horror Story: Cult, the anthology series takes that approach to of-the-moment levels by setting its action around the 2016 presidential election and commenting directly on the national climate now that Donald Trump is in the Oval Office.

Both the risks and subtextual benefits of tapping so directly into the Zeitgeist are on full display in this week’s episode, “Mid-Western Assassin,” one that FX announced on Monday

American Horror Story: Will Meadow and Kai’s Mass Shooting Plan Work?

This post contains spoilers for American Horror Story: Cult Episode 6, “Mid-Western Assassin.”

Poor Meadow. She was a cancer survivor, a Nicole Kidman stan, and above all, a hopeless romantic. Sure, she was also clueless—but we loved her. So it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beloved blonde, and pray that wherever she ends up, there’s a decent cable package.

As American Horror Story fans saw Tuesday night, Meadow never stood a chance. Once Kai decided to prey on her insecurities and loneliness, she quickly zoomed toward a horrific end. The cult leader convinced Madison to elevate his political career to the national stage through a mass shooting and assassination attempt. In a clever twist, the episode used the massacre as a frame story—and in its opening sequence, which was edited to nix some of the on-screen violence in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting on
