Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Mod: Trump has put America into a morally inferior position to King Herod and the Romans on the race issue? That was not easy to do. And yes, this is Claremont, California.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages (Raw Story link): MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook. The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

“The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world,” she wrote. “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death.”

She went on to ask what would likely happen to the Holy Family if they sought refuge in the United States today.

“Imagine Joseph and Mary separated at the border and Jesus no older than two taken from his mother and placed behind the fences of a Border Patrol detention center as more than 5,500 children have been the past three years,” she continued. “Jesus grew up to teach us kindness and mercy and a radical welcome of all people.”

She cited Matthew 25:35, which quotes Jesus expressing his gratitude for those who fed him when he was hungry and welcomed him in, even though he was a stranger. It’s not something generally upheld by Evangelical Christians supporting President Donald Trump.

“In the Claremont United Methodist Church nativity scene this Christmas, the Holy Family takes the place of the thousands of nameless families separated at our borders,” said the senior minister.

  3. Editorial boards of Los Angeles Times and Boston Globe call for Trump's impeachment

    The editorial boards at two of America's top newspapers have called for President Trump's impeachment in recent days.

    "Impeach the president," read the editorial in Friday's edition of The Boston Globe.

    And the Los Angeles Times published its editorial board's conclusion on Saturday: "We've seen enough. Trump should be impeached."

    Editorial boards -- groups of opinion writers -- typically operate separately from the newsroom and often reflect the views of the newspaper's ownership.

  4. Trump couldn't care because he has no religion whatsoever. He doesn't even know what that scene was all about.
