Catholic Media Invokes Christmas Imagery To Manipulate Refugee Policy
In the attempt to play on Christian sympathies at Christmas time, the National Catholic Register has posted a story titled, “No Room At The Inn, Why So Few Syrian Refugees Come To America”.
Firstly, the only ones that can be blamed for that are those that formulate the admissions policy.
Most Americans aren't held in much higher esteem by the secret society elites that run the upper echelons of the State Department and related agencies than the refugees applying for entrance.
It is doubtful your State Department gives a hoot what you think.
If the agency had it's way, those that run the place would probably like nothing better than to implement Prince Philip's proposal of systematic depopulation in the most diplomatic way possible where you would end up thanking them for doing you a favor in terminating your existence.
Secondly, Roman authorities ordered the swarms of whom Mary and Joseph ranked to report to their ancestral lands.
The United States did not compel the dispossessed to flock here only to slam the door in their face.
There is not a constitutional obligation to let them in.
Thirdly, enough with badmouthing what transpired at the inn after all these centuries.
How do we not know that the beds there weren't filled by other pregnant women also on the verge of giving birth or perhaps even elderly in nearly as much agony as Mary might have been?
Even if Mary had made a fuss that she was carrying the Redeemer, without angelic intervention to verify, why ought she have necessarily been believed in the first place?
