What would Jesus say or do? Never mind that. According to woman-child Nancy Pelosi, the question is who should be treated like Baby Jesus. The answer is illegal immigrants streaming across the southern border into the United States.
The former House Speaker (let that sink in for a minute!) was on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Tuesday, where she was asked, “What are we doing to make this situation" at the border "better?”
Pelosi's answer? We should treat these lawbreakers like the baby Jesus:
I always reference the Bishop National Catholic Confer-- uh, Conference of Bishops statement in which they said Baby Jesus was a refugee from violence. Let us not turn away from these children and send them back into a burning building. That’s the bishops.
A couple reactions from Brian Carey of DownTrend.com:
For starters, we don’t recall any account in the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke about the Baby Jesus being threatened with placement in a burning building.
Secondly, yes, Joseph and Mary took the Baby Jesus to Egypt to escape King Herod’s attempt to kill Him. However, they also went back to Israel after Herod died.
Further, the Egyptian border wasn’t overrun with people claiming that Herod wanted to kill their child.
There's also the not-inconsiderable matter of Pelosi's stance on abortion, which created some tension between her and the Church back in 2013. Although Pelosi was not excommunicated or denied Holy Communion, as was erroneously reported by some sources back then, religious leaders took a dim view of her professed "devoutness" and her political views.
