In honor of International Migrants Day yesterday, everyone’s favorite SJW pope sent out this tweet:
Jesus knows well the pain of not being welcomed. May our hearts not be closed as were the houses in Bethlehem. #Internationalmigrantsday

Isn’t Pope Francis supposed to know about this stuff? As pope, isn’t the Bible kind of in his wheelhouse?
They weren't migrants!

Mary and Joseph weren't immigrants. They were traveling to another part of the Roman Empire for an ordered census — totally legal.

Joseph and Mary weren’t migrants in Bethlehem. They were returning to Joseph’s hometown to be counted and taxed as Roman subjects. https://t.co/yr6ZnoZoE2

They were not immigrants or illegal immigrants. They were returning to Jospeh’s hometown to be counted and be taxed.

Um… Joseph & Mary we’re returning for a census. I don’t see the connection here.

They were going there for the census, not migrating there. They didn't have a place to stay because the inn was full. Bethlehem was not a big town so that inn probably filled quickly. This was all part of Our Lord's plan.

Swing and a miss, Pontifex.
Always glad to see the Pope being well versed on the Bible… 🤦🏼♀️

I would have thought he would know the scriptures better or at least be more informed.
