Obama Religious Affairs Adviser: 'Jesus Was an Illegal Alien'

Writings sounded more like a presenting a glowing Barack Obama campaign press release than a political story when they announced the hiring of Obama's new religious affairs adviser: Shaun Casey, who teaches religion and politics at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., has been hired by the Obama campaign to focus on outreach to evangelical voters.

"The Theologian: Shaun Casey
For a Christian ethicist, Shaun Casey crosses a lot of lines.
Raised in a small Kentucky town, he spent much of his adult life at Harvard University, where he earned degrees in divinity and public administration, as well as a doctorate of theology in religion and society."

"Another Harvard operative,Most are lawyers but this one a theologian !"

"A member and former minister of the conservative Churches of Christ, Casey, 49, now teaches Christian ethics at Wesley Theological Seminary, a Methodist school in Washington, D.C.
"I bring a perspective where I've been knocking around in some interesting and strange corners in this country," Casey said. "

"Churches of Christ Doctrine"
"In keeping with their history, Churches of Christ claim the New Testament as their sole rule of faith and practice in deciding matters of doctrine and ecclesiastical structure. Although they view the Old Testament as divinely inspired and historically accurate, they do not see its laws as binding under the New Covenant in Christ (unless they are repeated in the New Testament). They believe that the New Testament demonstrates how a person may become a Christian, thus a part of the universal church of Christ, and how a church should be collectively organized and carry out its scriptural purposes."

I am convinced Matthew included the flight to Egypt by Jesus and his family to show that Jesus' own story was part of the ancient story of Israel. They, too, fled to Egypt, suffered persecution, were redeemed by God, and then were empowered to live lives in solidarity with sojourners and aliens wherever they encountered them. Likewise disciples of Jesus throughout history pick up the same ministry of solidarity with displaced people. Jesus was an illegal alien

Jesus was born in Bethlehem, which would make him a citizen IF their laws were the same as ours. Of course, nothing can be illegal unless there is a law to break...and Jesus never broke any.

Do you suppose Egypt had laws about immigration? :D The bible can be selectively quoted to make all kinds of points that don't exist, but that one is really ridiculous.

As He was/is the Son of God-wouldn't that give Him pretty much a universal passport/citizenship? :confused:

They had borders and guards to check people out .I they weren't at war with the country you say you came from and obviously poor they would more or less leave you alone.

People with the agenda to weaken America have been misquoting and obviously misinterpreting the bible for many years just to justify their positions.The title of the op should show their motive,to equate Jesus to anyone Illegally crossing the border to enter America.

I don't think most people would have a problem with illegal aliens that go back home in a few years, anyway. :D

Really? Because I'm convinced the events around the flight into Egypt happened in order to fulfill a half dozen Old Testament prophecies concerning the Son of God. Of course, I'm not impeded by a theology degree from Wesley, either. :rolleyes:
