A Southern California church is exploiting its own God to show disputes to President Trump’s immigration policies.
On Saturday, Dec. 7, a staggering photo was posted on Facebook by a senior minister at Claremont United Methodist Church, east of Los Angeles, in which the church is putting Jesus, Mary, and Joseph inside three chain link cells topped with razor wire. The purpose, as the minister, Karen Clark Ristine, said, was to depict the Holy Family as a family separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The statement also said that after fleeing a tyrant king, Jesus, Mary, and Joseph became “the most well-known refugee family in the world.”
“What if this family sought refuge in our country today?” the church said. “Imagine Joseph and Mary separated at the border and Jesus no older than 2 taken from his mother and placed behind the fences of a Border Patrol detention center.”
Inside the church, the family is reunited in another nativity scene, Ristine said.
Just false doctrine, we must say.
Remember that in July 2016, Human Rights Watch condemned the Obama administration for 18 migrants who died while in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, claiming that seven or more of the 18 that died were the result of the agency’s “substandard” and “inappropriate” care for migrants at detention centers. The detainees who died then were between 24 and 49 years old, Daily Caller reported.
Just one question: Where was this church when Obama was doing it?
