Refugee?

I have been reading and listening to some of the most inane and absolutely stupid comments about Jesus and his human parents, Jesus Son of God by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin named Mary and with a human man as his step father. I hear that it is a good thing there was no fence or wall in Egypt otherwise Jesus would have died. Then there is the comment that Jesus and his parents were refugee’s.

Here is the reality of the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, his parents were forced to go to Bethlehem by a decree of the Ceasar (ruler of the empire) that said everyone was to go to their ancestral home to be registered (a census), and then pay their taxes. Sorry, no refugee status there, they were going to Bethlehem because Joseph was of the house of David, whose home town before becoming King was Bethlehem.

2 years give or take a month or so, Joseph and Mary and Jesus are now living in Bethlehem, and Joseph is probably working as a carpenter on one of the many projects that King Herod had going on at the time. Sages from the East come to Jerusalem and stop at the palace asking where the King of the Jews who was born could be found. The King asks his wise men and religious leaders the question and they say, in Bethlehem. Herod sends them on their way, tell me when you have found the child that I too may go to worship him. They journey to Bethlehem and the star leads them to the house where the family is living. They give gifts, gold, frankincense and Myrrh all very good gifts, both frankincense and myrrh were worth a great deal of local currency.

God warns the men from the East to go another route back home, and then tells Joseph to take Mary and Jesus and flee to Egypt, because Herod wants to kill Jesus. That gold that they got would help them along the way and feed and cloth them until Joseph finds work in Egypt. Just for the assistance of the poor uneducated Demonrats, again, not refugees, no wall because Egypt was a part of the Roman Empire, they were not entering the country illegally they were able to pay their way as recognized citizens of the Roman Empire.

It is a shame that these people want to politicize the birth narrative of Jesus and his family, they have such a hatred of Donald Trump and the Republican party that they will do anything to put them down. Trying to make Joseph, Mary and Jesus into modern day refugee’s is just a typical cheap shot, but even worse it is trying to say that God was powerless in the face of the situation. I listened to Rep. Gutierrez as he almost screamed that it was a good thing there was no wall in Egypt or Jesus would have died. That statement said that God did not know what God was about, and that this man knew the truth. The Holy Family would have been slaughtered if there had been a wall. What total nonsense, I am glad that he at least will not be back in the House come the new year.

Their hatred of our President has blinded them to the foolishness they are practicing. What do you think? Are these folks really unhinged?



The Constitution says No Religious Test

I am not happy with the idea that we are now going to have a religious test for the GOP nominee. I remember when Jack Kennedy ran for President and all the flack that brought to us. He was a Roman Catholic so he was going to place us under the control of the Pope. Drivel, and this latest stuff about Romney is also Drivel. If we are really Christian people, then we are to live by grace, we are to act in Love and yet here we are judging a man not by his heart, but his religion.
Now I will say that I am a United Methodist, and our Church has declared that Mormon’s are not Christians, if a Mormon wanted to join our church they would have to be baptized. However, our founders the men who wrote the Constitution were smarter than we are. They realized that our nation was founded on the premise that we were free to practice our religion, as long as it did not hurt others, or cause a riotous situation in our towns and cities. Mormon’s are a peaceful group of folks, unlike some religious groups, they will come to your door and ask if you would like to speak with them about religion, if you say no that is the end of the conversation.
So my fellow Republicans, when are you going to wake up and smell the coffee, whether you are evangelical, Roman Catholic, Episcopal or atheist, you are free to believe as you will, why is it that Mitt Romney is not?
This is probably going to be our candidate for President, I for one will back him to the hilt, and his faith will not be a problem for me. I will also say that I was a Perry supporter and when Perry left the race, I became a Newt supporter. I am now ready to give Mitt my full support, how about you, if you are a Republican and want to defeat the Democrats in November, you better make up your mind very quickly.



Congress shall make no law

respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. That is the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. It does not say that the States cannot make any law respecting religion,it says only that the Congress cannot do so. This had to do with the idea that nations in Europe had their own State Churches, in Britain it is the Anglican Church, in Germany the Lutheran, in France the Roman Catholic. The history of the State Church was a bloody one.

It led to changes in Church power over the centuries, it also led to corruption in some cases, and to death for those who did not toe the line. In Britain you will find that Rome was dominant until Henry the 8th, who decided it was better for the Church to home grown and subject to the crown instead of to God or Rome. So the Church of England was born, but others who came after Henry would change it back to Rome. Then came war to restablish Anglicanism, meanwhile Scotland became Presbyterian, and well they were punished. The United States did not want this to happen, so the First Amendment was passed to stop the Federal Government for declaring a Federal Church.

This did not stop the States however from having State Churches, in New England it was The Congregational Church, one of my ancestors was a Congregational minister and University professor. Harvard, Yale, Notre Dame, and other schools of higher learning were not started by the Governent, they were started by Churches. Schools were begun by Churches across this great land so that people could learn to read and write.

It was even legal to be an Atheist, this nation was founded on Religious freedom, yet today, we are rapidly losing that freedom. It stems from the mistaken belief that there is a Wall of Separation, between Church and State. This was a one sentence part of a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to a Baptist group promising them that they had the freedom to be Baptist because the Federal Government could not and would not pass a law against them. He did not mean for it to become the law of the land that no one anywhere could publicly support their faith by public display.

I cannot believe that our judicial system has become so corrupt as to deny the clear wording of this First Amendment right of the people to freely speak openly about Jesus Christ. It is time to redress this particular grievance. It is time to return to the truth of the Constitution, you are free to be a witch, and I am free to be a Christian, while someone else can believe in nothing if they want to do so. Do not continue to infringe on the rights of Christians in this nation.
