    Ooooh--just stoped my fundy relatives in their tracks!
    * SMACK! * They were sitting around the living room after dinner (we just had our family Christmas dinner for ones who couldn't be here Christmas day), and the subject of illegal immigrants came up. They were complaining that illegals were here getting government "handouts," and the rest of the usual RW crap. I finally got tired of it, and very innocently asked, "Wasn't Jesus once an illegal immigrant?"

    They changed the subject mighty fast!

    I can see this scene clearly.

    Lastlib says "Wasn't Jesus once an illegal immigrant?"

    "Fundy relatives" look at each other, roll their eyes and think, "There she goes again with all the liberal crap. She doesn't even know (and probably doesn't care to know) that Jesus was NEVER an ILLEGAL immigrant. Immigrant yes, Illegal, NO. We love her so let's talk about something that won't give her fits.

    Lastlib: (Jumping up and down) I WON, I WON, they changed the subject when I shamed them. They know I'm right. Yahooooo. Aren't I good.

    3. I can certainly understand the stunned silence, blank stares and dropping jaws

    on the part of your fundy relatives.

    It may not have been for the reason you think it was though.
    LOL.

    16. You didn't need "permission" to travel in those days...

    Egypt and Judea were both part of the Roman Empire. People traveled between the provinces regularly.
    Wow. Some truth on DU.

    An illegal immigrant???

    Jesus was born in Judea and lived in Judea.

    He didn't sneak into Rome and demand free stuff from the Empire.

    He wasn't a Roman, he wasn't Egyptian, or a German; he was a Jew living in his own homeland.

    Another Moonbat re-writes history, and comes no where near the truth.

    Egypt was a Roman province.

    Judea was a Roman province.

    Judea had a Roman Governor (at that time Pontius Pilate, who relieved Gratus).

    Mary and Joseph returned to Nazareth as part of the Roman Census ordered by Caesar Augustus (see Res Gestae Divi Augusti)

    Jesus was born in Nazareth, the son of Judean citizens in their own homeland.

    Liberal screws it up. Again.

    Jesus was obviously a socialist liberal. He gave out free healthcare. (Healing.)

    I always thought that Jesus was a muddy little child who got the kitchen floor dirty. Otherwise, why would my mother look at me and say, "Jesus Christ, where have you been playing?"
