       I like it. Make me an explosive baby Jesus launcher and I'll buy [+]

       These religious arguments all just seem to boil down to semtex.   

       Exploding Baby Jesus. PLEASE!

       Hey B People steal them where I live for fun and it makes national news. I just thought this would be an effective deterrent. Its a way to make a plastic baby Jesus even more special.

       And is it special when baby Jesus accidentally detonates in your attic during summer storage?

       Suggestion for title fix to read "Exploding baby Jesus decoy" bun for the change. The thought of a real baby exploding is a bit... well... disturbing

       // baby Jesus accidentally detonate summer storage? //   

       Just remove the detonator, stupid.   

       Rather than using a conformable, like C4, better to cast the figure from RDX which has reasonable mechanical strength in thick sections and is temperature stable. A few coats of flesh-coloured paint would add to the durability.   

       If the device has "hair", access to the trigger/detonator could be under the wig.   

       This is quite possibly the best Halfbakery Xmas idea EVER.

       [+] Yes, it always makes the news here, too. Quite stupid of people to steal anything, so too bad anything people steal couldn't explode!! It be worth it to have a hidden camera to see their expression! Instant Karma!

       Ironic and I think Jesus would approve. (As long as it was a statement made in confidence with no news cameras around.) [+]   

       //Suggestion for title fix to read "Exploding baby Jesus decoy" bun for the change. The thought of a real baby (Jesus) exploding is a bit... well... disturbing//   

       Takes some liberties with historical accuracy too.

       //Just remove the detonator, stupid.// oh, thanks. For ruining the funny. Thanks for taking this idea so seriously.

       It's an act of God.

       I have an unused smartphone phone you could put inside the Baby Jesus Decoy. You can track it with in 3 square meters. Just blow up the building its in once you find it. The decoy could be made of kevlar so all you need to do is catch it when it re-enters the atmosphere. [+] for title change, thanks.

       The real baby Jesus was in fact explosive. He expanded from well under a metre long to several tens of billions of light years in size in just over four decades.

       Don't mention it. It's the very least we could do (a quantity we specialise in).

       //It be worth it to have a hidden camera to see their expression!//   

       "so we put the decoy with the crystal set and waited. Sure enough this jerkoff comes along and picks it up, I let my seven year old push the button. You should have seen his face! Blood everywhere, his arm was off at the elbow! AHAHAHAHAHAAA! He had to use his shirt for a tourniquet! and when he picked up the phone to call 911 I was on the other end! What a blast!"

       An explosive over 2000 years old is likely to be unstable. Not safe to handle.

       Au contraire; if kept cool and dry, inorganic compositions such as Ammonal are notably time-stable. Material recovered from WW1 mines in the Somme area has been shown to be only a little degraded and still viable - and that was stored in non-optimal conditions.   

       With careful blending, including additional stabilisers, and good packaging, a shelf life of hundreds of years could be achieved.

       The problem with explosives is that it is not very Christmasy. I propose that instead the Baby Jesus be filled with beetles. Darkling beetles are small, cheap, do not mind crowding, can put up with a little bit of cold, and bite. They crawl into everything and they can fly. Plus it seems a more biblical sort of punishment for baby jesus stealers.
