Bill Lockwood: Was Jesus a “Refugee?” 0 (0)

As reported by CNN, a Methodist church in California is displaying a nativity scene depicting Jesus, Mary and Joseph as refugees in cages to “draw attention to the conditions faced by migrants seeking asylum in the United States.” The Claremont United Methodist Church, which is about 30 miles east of Los Angeles, “posted the photo on its website showing the three held in separate cages topped with barbed wire. The baby Jesus is wrapped in a silver foil blanket.” The “lead pastor” Karen Clark Ristine told CNN that “we thought about the most famous refugee family in the world.”

The United Methodist Church, ever ready to warp biblical narratives into liberal political messages, has displayed a stunning ignorance of the Bible. As Gary DeMar observes, “Leftists have little regard for the Bible unless it can be used to scold Christians for judging righteously … and to support socialism based on a passage about voluntary giving (Acts 2:42-45; 4:32-35).”

As I wrote in a former article, there are several biblical considerations that need be made. (1) God Himself established borders of nations. Read Acts 17:26. (2) God demanded that Old Testament Israel respect the borders of other nations. God gave Mt. Seir to Esau and his descendants for a “possession.” Therefore, Israel, when coming out of Egypt, was not to cross it (Deuteronomy. 2:5). The same regarded Israel’s respect of Moab’s borders.

(3) Once settled in Canaan, the Israelites were sternly warned to “drive the Canaanites out.” The stated reason for this was to preserve the culture of Israel (Numbers. 33:51,52). (4) Even Abraham was deported once it was discovered that he lied to border agents. Read Genesis 12. (5) Regarding Jesus and the holy family, as DeMar notes, they were living within the confines of the Roman Empire. Egypt was part of the Roman Empire at the time of Jesus’ birth. Their escape from Bethlehem was only to another Roman Province. (6) Another command given to Joseph and Mary was that they were to return to their homeland after the death of Herod (Matthew. 2:20). DeMar asks, “How many refugees return to their home nations after entering the United States?”

Obama Forces Muslim Colonization in the U.S.A.

Few gauged the depths to which President Obama would go to “fundamentally transform” America. Bent on eradicating the last vestiges of western culture the president continues to press his radical agenda over top of any patriotic or Constitutional hurdle. One methodology is by means of a UN “repatriation program” by which he is colonizing Syrian refugees into American cities. The US State Department right now is on fast track to resettle up to 100,000 foreign Muslims on US soil.

Fargo, North Dakota, for example. The city registers just over 110,000 population. It is bracing right now for a major influx of mid-Eastern Muslims—refugees that the UN has slated for America. One of the organizations that facilitates this for the State Department in North Dakota is Lutheran Social Services (LSS).
Jessica Thomasson, its CEO explains that this year has seen about 10% increase in the number of refugees—most of which will need publicly funded housing, furnishings and assistance. Burdening our already unconstitutional welfare program with more dependents seems to be the goal.

As reported by Leo Hohmann (WorldNetDaily), hundreds of residents in Fargo and Cass County, North Dakota have become active and signed petitions to stop this settlement are the latest to get active.
According to Hohmann, “LSS, a subsidiary of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, one of the nine resettlement agencies or VOLAGs, has been funneling U.N.-selected refugees into Midwestern states areas like the Dakotas and Minnesota for years. Since 2002 the small cities of Fargo and West Fargo have received 3,647 refugees from more than two dozen Third World countries including 1,397 refugees from Bhutan, 670 from Somalia, 567 from Iraq, 209 from Liberia, 196 from Democratic Republic of Congo, and the balance from Iraq, Afghanistan, Russia, Cambodia, Chad, Columbia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Burundi, Burma and Bosnia, according to government databases.”

Not only does this ensure a different culture in North Dakota, but is potentially dangerous since our own FBI director James Comey confessed to the Homeland Security Committee of the U.S. House that it is “impossible” to screen out the “lone wolves” and operatives that already operate in the US and are being actively recruited by ISIS and other jihadist groups. But what is that to President Obama? He has already all-but-erased our southern border. Adding hundreds of thousands of “unvetted” Muslim refugees will add another potential ticking time-bomb into America. And, we know these Syrian Muslims are NOT screened because in April one of the FBI’s own counter-terrorism experts complained that “screening” was impossible when they come from “war-torn countries” such as Syria and Somalia since the American military has little presence there. Recruiting Ground for ISIS?

All of this also means that the potential pool of ISIS killers is growing right here in the states. Obama’s own DOJ federal attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger admitted publicly in April that the recruiting of terrorists to join the ISIS jihadist army in Syria poses a significant problem in the United States amongst Muslim refugee communities.

If Americans wish to preserve any semblance of western culture with its base in Christian axioms, it is critical to stop Obama’s revamp of our nation. To this end US Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, has introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (HR 3314), which would require an “immediate suspension [of the US] refugee resettlement program, until the Government Accountability Office (GAO) completes a thorough examination of its costs on federal, state and local governments.”

The citizens of Fargo, ND will be among those who would be thankful to halt this refugee program. For, after bringing a petition of over 2,500 signatures the LSS and Jessica Thomasson to cease and desist being a conduit for this federal assault on our nation, the LSS thumbed their nose at the citizenry. They will continue to work for Obama and not the local residents.
