Democrats Said Syrian Refugees Are Just Like Mary And Joseph – This Texan Proves Them WRONG

Syrian Refugees

Democrats and their liberal cohorts in the media have taken on a new tactic when it comes to selling the dangerous White House policy of accepting Syrian refugees – comparing them to Mary and Joseph trying to find shelter for the birth of baby Jesus.

Here are a couple of examples:

Texas Rep. Brian Babin appeared on Stephen K. Bannon’s Sirius XM radio program, and the host warned that this would become an even more extensive argument from the left as the holiday season comes into play.

Babin however, had the perfect response for anyone that wanted to go down that road.

“Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on them, and these folks do,” Babin said.

Take a listen …

Via Mediaite:

“What they’re going to bring up over the holiday season is, ‘Mary and Joseph were refugees,’” said Bannon.

In response, Babin — who since October has opposed President Barack Obama’s “insane” efforts to admit up to 10,000 Syrian refugees to resettle across the United States — made his own religious comparison as a counterpoint.

“I would just say this,” he said. “Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on them, and these folks do. You can see it in technicolor in Paris.”

Comment: Do you think liberals will understand the difference between Syrian refugees and the biblical story of Mary and Joseph?

    REALLY ?? Mary & Joseph read out of the Koran ?? Joseph used to beat Mary, then he raped the goat, killed the children, beheaded his non-believer neighbor, then blew himself up ? Really….?
    Only a Dumb A** Liberal would believe that one.

  2. Adrian says:

    Right and Obama is not a Muslim…. Sure….

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for facts.

  3. Irene says:

    OBAMA let there people in others countries take them in . I wonder how mush of our tat dollars its costing us poor people. You could pay for some of this out your pocket.

  4. Norman says:

    Biblical scholars hold that the story of the trip of the Holy Family to Bethlehem for census taking, the flight into Egypt, and all this is a myth designed to make an important point about the messiahship of Jesus. The Romans would not have asked people to return to the place of their birth, this would have involved social and economic and political dangers. The earliest canonical gospel, Mark, has none of this. It is a nice story. Anyway, any attempt to make the Holy Family into Islamic refugees is stupid and offensive and too politically correct for anyone with a mind.

  5. Barbara says:

    One valid reason. They’re not pregnant with the Messiah. End of discussion. Turn them away because 99% of these people most likely do not have the proper papers, I.D. nor does their story back up their true identity. We cannot take that chance!

  6. CaptainJim says:

    The very religion (if you can call it that) espouses violence against anyone who is not of their faith… even to the point of death. It is not just the extremists who take that view… it is all devout Muslims. Therefore, we should not allow ANY of them into the USA! Not under any circumstances. We are seeing the disaster Europe is facing because they have already allowed Muslims in. A high ranking Imam has said,”The sweetest blood is that of the American Infidel!” They are coming for us! We must say “No!” and keep our powder dry!

  7. Jim says:

    I don’t believe refugee status applies here since Joseph was going there to record his status in his hometown for the census. This is not Syria’s home country. I say if we help anyone it should be the women and children of the region not able body men that can fight to take their country back. Also I might add when the war is over send them back also. We had soldiers as young as 13 in the civil war of our country so why are they special?

  8. Irene says:

    I don’t think our leaders know what they are doing these day to our people and our country.

    No such census taken in Jesus’ day? I beg to differ. There were at least two census records mentioned in the New Testament.

    According to Micah 5:2 and Jewish tradition, the Messiah (the Christ) would be born in Bethlehem, a small town near Jerusalem. Luke 2 informs us that Mary and Joseph traveled to the town for a census prior to Jesus’s birth, thus fulfilling the prophecy. Some critics, however, see the lack of corroborating historical accounts as evidence that the census and Quirinius’s governorship at the time must have been fictitious—a myth invented later.

    If this story had been a myth, though, it would have been a rather poor one. First of all, a census at the bidding of the Roman Empire repulsed Jewish sensibilities and desire for sovereignty. This hardly seems the place to begin a legend.

    Beyond this, Luke’s precise language emphasizes a particular census, as if to contrast it with similar ones. In fact, another census did occur ten years later, which Luke refers to in Acts 5:37. The author’s additional information concerning Qurinius’s governorship (Luke 2:2), which is unnecessary for the narrative, reveals a familiarity with the recent past. Luke knew his audience would need clarification between similar events, so he gave them the details necessary to understand the date he meant.

    The emperor at the time of Jesus’s birth, Caesar Augustus, kept count of the population throughout his empire for taxation purposes. Israel would have been no exception. Even if we have no other accounts of the census taken during that time (which is no proof that the event didn’t happen given the sparse records available), the event seems likely from what we do know of the Roman Empire.

    Quirinius may, in fact, have governed Syria at the time and also ten years later. However, the original Greek suggests another possible reading. Luke’s statement may imply that King Herod performed a Jewish style census (counted according to the historic location of the tribes and clans) to keep the peace. Thus, the command of Caesar was not really carried out in the Roman method (counted by where the person was born) until ten years later when Qurinius was governor and Herod had died.

    These people are not your grandma, these people are barbarians they can not be trusted. They are coming here to take over our country with the help of their leader Obama. He will allow them to take our homes and our possessions. They want to do away with our constitution our gun right our flag and religion! They want us to bow down to Satan. He is running the show. But God be with us who can be against us nobody. Time to take out your bibles and getting knowledge from our creator. God says my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. God Have Mercy on us and our Country. You don’t let the enemy in you take them out!

  11. Bob says:

    That’s how really these brain dead liberals are.They are empty headed dorks I under stand not all of those people are terrorists but the FBI says they can’t check them to see who is and isn’t terrorists but the dorks that wants to let them in just don’t have brains enough to figure that out

  12. Terry says:

    Liberals, Democrats, and Anti-Christ folk like to pull scripture out of context to prove their shaky ideas. If theological knowledge were dynamite they wouldn’t have enough to blow their nose.

  13. Core Conservative says:

    These are the same liberal democrats that are committed to getting “God” or any reference to “God” expelled from every aspect of American society. They use God and biblical principles totally out of context whenever they deem such to be to their advantage! They are total hypocrites! Do you think they are “praying” for the Syrian refugees? I doubt they know how!

  14. Norman says:

    When evangelical or fundamentalist Christians get into these discussions they only show any reasonable person how crazy they and their so-called faith really are.

  15. Norman says:

    There is no evidence that Mary and Joseph and the infant Jesus fled to Egypt, any more than that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. All this is post factual rearrangement of the story to fit in with Old Testament prophecy about the coming of the Messiah. The bible says somewhere: out of Egypt I have called my son; this is the source of trying to make Jesus fit the bill with a trip to and from Egypt. Most if not all of the nativity stories are totally fictitious. The Gospel of Mark, the oldest canonical gospel, has no mention of any nativity story. Nor does St. Paul’s letters which are the earliest Christian writings. Anyway it certainly is true that the Holy Family were not terrorists with bombs on their persons.

    1. Robert says:

      Norman, nice rant, but not factual. My upcoming book “come on MAN, Speak English to ME about GOD” will answer all of the hard questions about God. I didn’t know that you were there and first hand observed these events. Not all of scripture was to prove one point!! Mark was a book to prove Jesus the Servant! there are themes for all of the Gospels. Would you feel better if all of them were the same redundant story? No, because you would say the fix was in. My book will be what I call the “cliff notes” to the Bible. It is based on logic, reasoning, historical documents, science, medicine, archeology and much more. It will make the Old Testament SING of its cohesive and understandable message. some of the questions in the book are “Would men want to be told truth or a preponderance of evidence?” Why can’t God accept man in his present condition? What has man done to so upset God? Why can’t God just get over it and forgive man? Are all religions right, wrong or one right? Why is a spiritual book proven to be authentically from God? Can God be proven from a blank sheet of paper? It is due out soon and will be a radical change to the spiritual concepts held today. Like Is hell a justifiable place of eternal suffering? Is there a hell? What it is like? Isn’t it pouring it on by God allowing eternal separation from him? Is hell a lake of fire? and Much much more. Just relax an discuss instead of going into a tirade. Good day!

    No, Mary And Joseph were actively being hunted by a tyrannical (politician) King.
    I say we take the refuges and export the democrats to Syria every last American killing one of them.
    Democrats are the terrorists and support terrorism here and around the world!
    Take your blue helmets and stick them up ……

  17. Bob says:

    Just like the Demoncrats to srew up this story too . . . the way I recall it is . . .

    At that time, Caesar Augustus decreed that a census be taken, and every person in the entire Roman world had to go to his own town to register. Joseph, being of the line of David, was required to go to Bethlehem to register with Mary. While in Bethlehem, Mary gave birth to Jesus. Probably due to the census, the inn was too crowded, and Mary gave birth in a crude stable. She wrapped the baby in cloths and placed him in a manger.

    That means they were going to the place of Josephs birth and in no way were they refugees . . . before they tell us whats in the bible they should at least read it.

    1. Wayne says:

      totally agree with Bob…

      The fact that Dems compare them shows a basic and grave misundertanding of the two descendents of the Adamic bloodline.

      The purpose they went to Bethlehem was taxation, Jewish, hated by Romans, and carpenters, not nomadic. They were humble, completely unlike the whining migrants now rejecting free food and demanding TVs, and finally, they were carrying the Son of God, through whom salvation would come…and I have yet to see a single Arab come close to that model.

      Not one Christian advocates beheading religious opponents, yet all we hear from our President is how peaceful Muslims are. The reality gives lie to the empty words from the Admin.

      Refugees? Joseph or Mary? Hardly!

    2. Norman says:

      There was no such census in Jesus’ day. And no law would have required everyone to travel to the place of his birth in order to be counted. The Romans were not stupid; nor would our own government expect us all to get registered for new taxes in the place of our birth, even if we probably are more stupid than the Romans.

    3. Robert says:

      right, and they weren’t looking for free housing, food stamps and more.

  18. Jaime says:

    What made Mary and Joseph get on a donkey late in her pregnancy, and travel to Bethlehem? A government seeking to take a census to tax residents in their place of birth. Fortunately, they were allowed to return to Nazareth later after escaping to Egypt to avoid a government intent on killing babies.

  19. Teresa says:

    Joseph and Mary were Jewish and they came to Bethlehem for the Roman Census. They performed no threat and they were in their own land. The Syrians are terrorists and they mus die. Obama, the Muslim trained anti Semite, is using this analogy to fuck with people’s heads during the holiday season..
