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!

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.
