Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Thinks Jesus Was in Bethlehem as Refugee

Usually when we cover someone butchering the Scriptural narrative to push Marxist ideology it’s Timothy Keller. This time around it’s another New York liberal, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez, the congresswoman-elect for New York’s congressional district has apparently picked up on cues from Christian liberals like Keller, Russell Moore, and the other leftist evangelicals who insist that Jesus was an illegal immigrant and refugee despite Egypt being a part of the Roman Empire.

Russell Moore made the claim that Jesus was an illegal immigrant back in 2013. Since then, liberals have been repeating that absurd claim (video below).

In this video, Moore skirted around the “undocumented” part, which he had said and continued to say until the discernment blogs eviscerated him on this point.

However, Ocasio-Cortez apparently didn’t catch that Jesus wasn’t born as a “refugee,” but was born in Bethlehem because of an intrusive registration as a part of the oppressive tax system of a centralized and overbearing government, not because of the threat from Herod. That threat would lead to Jesus’ family’s departure to Egypt until months later.

Ocasio-Cortez said on her Twitter

Jesus was not some kind of anchor baby.

God made man in his image. It’s not right that we should make God in our image, let alone the image of a welfare-seeking illegal immigrant and undocumented Democrat in swaddling clothes.
