For years liberals have tried to make the Christmas story about a homeless couple. Jesse Jackson was the first to turn Joseph and Mary into a “homeless couple” when he claimed that Christmas “is not about Santa Claus and ‘Jingle Bells’ and fruit cake and eggnog,” of which all Christians would agree, but about “a homeless couple.”
He repeated his “homeless couple” theme at the 1992 Democratic Convention.
Hillary Clinton, in comments critical of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s homeless policies, claimed that “Christmas celebrates ‘the birth of a homeless child.’”
Like seasonal clockwork, there are some who are trying to make Jesus, Mary, and Joseph into a refugee family.
The first item I saw was this:
“If only we had a seasonally appropriate story about Middle Eastern people seeking refuge being turned away by the heartless.”
