Democrats have a perpetual Thud-Hate relationship with Christianity. Mainly party members enjoy scorching Christians politically and deriding the faithful whenever possible.
The other times leftists will try appropriating the religion to forward their own political agenda, and in so doing manage to expose their ignorance and intolerance in one swipe. It reveals so much when they move from calling the religion ”intolerant” and then pivot to declare the so-called ”hateful” religion makes their own case.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg attempted to work that secondary angle on Christmas Day, delivering a Tweet with a holiday message that was slightly less than heartfelt.
Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee.
No matter where or how we celebrate, merry Christmas.

Not unlike the claims of the impeachment being a ”solemn” event for the Democrats (just don’t mind the rallies they staged, the joyous videos they recorded, and the cheering they made in the House chambers) this is an attempt to show reverence on the holiday AND to deliver a political narrative. It was a monumental failure.
This would be the same as If Mayor Pete approached a Nativity display and after bowing in prayer he then planted a ”Vote Buttigieg” yard sign inside the manger.

Not really – they weren't refugees, they had to travel to Joseph's hometown under government mandate, evidence that government has been a pain in their citizen's backsides for quite awhile now.
Merry Christmas! 🎄

You can always count on the Democrats who lecture politically on the Bible will fail in spectacular fashion when it comes to Biblical content.
Pretty sure that Nazareth and Bethlehem were and are still in the same country. Would be like a refugee from Peoria ending up in Rockford for the census.

They traveled to a different Roman Province. Herod couldn't touch them outside his own province. Not Refugees any more than a family moving from NY to NC to escape the oppressive State government.

Jesus’ parents came to Bethlehem as subjects of Rome who were literally following the law to migrate. Not many other ways to convince a very pregnant mother to travel hundreds of miles besides an emperor’s edict. Other than that, great tweet.

Look, Mayor Pete knows his audience—and by that I mean he knows that they don’t know much at all.

Total mistranslating the Gospel and who Jesus is but Satan also tried to use the “Word” against Jesus. Light will conquer the darkness Pete. You are not fooling “us.”

Summed — up.
The inability to refrain from signaling and messaging while pretending to deliver a solemn religious message is a constant trait of the Dems. Here was someone attempting to help.

It is just so easy, and yet impossible for them to execute, all at once.
