House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled down on her comments that Americans should view the flood of children crossing the border while claiming refugee status just like baby Jesus.


Yo I thought 'religion' was bad Pelosi ?

Here is some epic cognitive dissonance coming from Pelosi !

She, and others like here absolutely blew a gasket about the Scotus ruling, and now she using using religion to justify that apparently we aren't the worlds policeman, but we are the worlds kindergarten!.

Hey Pelosi ?

In case you haven't been watching the news lately quite a few people don't look too highly on religion in this country.

And they don't look too highly on 'Moses' homeland.

When logic,reason has failed whip out ye ole emotion card to make your 'argument'.

I guess we have 10-30 million 'immaculately' conceived people in this country.

And if that is the case then Moses, and Jesus aren't very 'special'.

I liked Moses for a guy who never existed.

God only gave us 10 laws to follow. Centuries later of men playing god we have thousands of superfluous laws.

Because the first 10 already covers pretty much everything.

I think she is implying that what were doing on the border isn't christian. It infidelity goes against what Jesus taught.

Wouldn't Moses be a refugee twice, once to Egypt and once for Caanan?

In case people missed it calling people who don't get in line and knock on this houses door, and ask for permission to come in like everyone else.

Is no longer called 'illegal' that is not PC.

Now they are being called 'refugee'.

Dear neo96,

That's not her only problem. It seems as though there is a traditional, but misleading, translation of that verse made especially clear by her reference to Moses.


“And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not do him wrong.” Leviticus 19:33

That’s the most common translation. It also happens to be misleading. The word used in Hebrew is “Ger”.

Ger does not mean stranger. It means resident. One who lives there. You can see that’s true because the same verse uses a variation of the word twice, as is common in the Bible.

Phonetically the second, third and fourth words are, Yogur Itha Ger which are translated as “a stranger sojourn with thee”. Yogur and Ger are variations of the same word. Translating one as “sojourn” and the other as “stranger” is clearly wrong.

A consistent translation is “If a sojourner sojourns with you”. Sojourner is not quite right either, but it captures some variations of the term. Within Jewish tradition, the most common usage is Ger Toshav, or Resident Alien. Ger, without any elaboration, is used to refer to converts. (Within Jewish tradition, that verse is generally held to be referring to converts.)

Of course that’s just part of the picture. The full context in the next refers to “for ye were sojourners in the land of Egypt”.

The Jews had entered Egypt with the permission of Pharaoh. They were then abused once they had been legally living there for a long time. They were resident aliens temporarily living in Egypt.

And they said unto Pharaoh: ‘To sojourn in the land are we come; for there is no pasture for thy servants’ flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan. Now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.’

Genesis 47:4

The word used for sojourn, again is Logur.

The Bible is not stating that you have to accommodate people who invade your country. It is stating that once you do take in people and they act in good faith, you have to treat them decently. You can’t act like Pharaoh and turn them into slaves or prevent them from leaving. (Emphasis added)

Going by the great Pelosi track record of saying stupid things I'm pretty sure she has the emotion card permanently stapled to her forehead. You know, just so she doesn't forget her lines.

Here's an idea, let's have the House pass a bill that if Moses or Jesus show up at the border we automatically give them refuge status. Everyone else can get in line with the honorable immigrants applying for entry according to our laws.

Actually no there isn't simply because it doesn't say that in the Constitution. The Hobby Lobby case proved that. After all and always remember in politics religion is only bad when it goes against what you want.

No neo they are called refugees cause some of them really are!
Not all of them, but there is people escaping the violence and indiscriminate killings in central america.
People are still getting deported, the laws are being upheld but their are loop holes and of course people are going to take advantage of them.
Why do you ever go after congress for not doing anything about the loopholes? Why do they not have bill's stacked up on obamas desk about this?
Well I guess johhny boy would have to actually vote on something for that to happen.

Yeah since the Hobby Lobby ruling, and her comments following it.

She doesn't think too much of religion.

That old psychopath will use whatever she can to try to make a point. One day religion might be bad, the next it's the best thing since she can use it as a point.

All politicians do this, but old psycho Pelosi takes the cake.

Yeah well it does say it here"



The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, Pub. L. No. 103-141, 107 Stat. 1488 (November 16, 1993), codified at 42 U.S.C. § 2000bb through 42 U.S.C. § 2000bb-4 (also known as RFRA), is a 1993 United States federal law aimed at preventing laws that substantially burden a person's free exercise of religion


en.wikipedia.org...

And the people who passed this blew a gasket about HL.

Then compared 'refugees' to Jesus!

My Gawd! Even blue-all-the-way-through democrats are praying that this woman will shut up.

(Pun not-intended)

Can she open her yap without saying something cringe worthy? There has to be a script.
