Protesting Nativity Jesus in a Cage

The entire border issue is one big mess that President Trump has tried to clean up, but the Democrats keep messing up the changes. The Democrats have made it their mission to oppose everything that the president does for America.

They have become so anti-American that they have lost sight of what it means to be one. And now liberals are beginning to get bold and speak out about things that they do not have a firm grasp on. Such is the case for one church in the liberal state of California.

This church has decided to take a symbolic portrait of Jesus’ birth and turn it into political divisive work. The Claremont United Methodist Church has decided that it would be a good idea to take figures of Jesus and His parents and put them in cages.

Their purpose is to protest the separation of families at the border. Their reason for doing so is so that families are kept together while they seek entrance into the country.

The church has failed to understand what is truly going on at the border. Many of the so-called families are people that are not related who are claiming to be family members. Their goal is to enter the country as a fake family, and then they will split and disappear into the population never to be heard from again.

The nativity is making a statement but not the one that the church is hoping for. There is a better way to protest things than to take what many consider to be holy and turn it into a joke.

In one cage is Joseph and in another is Mary with Jesus in the middle. The cages are bared-wired up. The statement that is posted by the church is “What if this family sought refuge in our country today?”

This statement leaves a lot of unanswered questions and shows that the leadership of the church has failed to see the true picture of what is happening at the border. This sad church has effectively jumped into bed with the Democrats that are protesting the actions that President Trump has done to secure the southern border.

Claremont United Methodist Church fails to realize that the majority of the people wanting into the country come in illegally. They could have come the legal way but decided not to do it because they truly do not want to be an American citizen.

Many true families are admitted to the country than what is being reported on by the media. This is where the church has failed to see the big picture. They have bought into the lie that every family that comes to the border is split up.

The only families that are being split up are the fake ones. But the Democrats are telling everyone that they are true families when they are not.

The bad choice to use a nativity set to get their point across will only spark hatred against the church. They will quickly see that they made the wrong decision as people will refuse to be a part of a place that desecrates the holy portraits that many displays around the country as symbols of their faith in Christ. Christmas time is a time to celebrate the Savior. It is not time to make a political statement.

The church has stated that “Imagine Joseph and Mary separated at the border and Jesus no older than two taken from his mother and placed behind the fences of a Border Patrol detention center as more than 5,500 children have been the past three years.

In the Claremont United Methodist Church nativity scene this Christmas, the Holy Family takes the place of the thousands of nameless families separated at our borders.” The part that the church is missing is that they only reason Joseph took his family away from Israel at the time was that Herod decreed that all the little boys under the age two were to be killed. This has nothing to do with immigration as the church is promoting.
