Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Illinois, appears to be a mini me modern-day Herod– and his apparent duplicity about mass genocide of babies is astonishing.
Similar to former Speaker Nancy Pelosi comparing Baby Jesus to Baby Moses, now Gutierrez argues that President Trump’s immigration policies would have “killed Jesus.”
Let’s get a few things straight.
No– baby Jesus is not comparable to the illegal migrants reportedly being trafficked by globalists.
No– the biblical story of Jesus’s birth, which Christians celebrate at Christmas and year round, has nothing to do with the Border Wall. (By the way, the Roman Empire built walls– many of which are still standing today.)
The Illinois Democrat used the entirety of his time at the House Judiciary Committee hearing to trash Department of Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen, calling her a “remorseless” liar for repeatedly claiming that the department does not have a family separation policy. (It did under President Obama.)
“It is repugnant to me and astonishing to me that during Christmas, a time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ — a Jesus Christ who had to flee for his life with Mary and Joseph,” Gutiérrez said. “Thank God there wasn’t a wall that stopped him from seeking refuge in Egypt.”
“Thank God that wall wasn’t there and thank God there wasn’t an administration like this or he would have, too, perished on the 28th, on the Day of Innocents when [King] Herod ordered the murder of every child under 2 years of age,” he continued. “Shame on everybody that separates children and allows them to stay at the other side of the border fearing death, fearing hunger, fearing sickness. Shame on us for wearing our badge of Christianity during Christmas and allow the secretary to come here and lie.”
This is coming from a man who advocates that federal dollars be used to kill babies just as King Herod ordered? The Romans killed living babies using a knife or sword or crushed their heads with stones. The Clintons, Obamas, and Democrats, like Gutierrez, have publicly supported the practice of partial-birth abortion– killing a living baby that is partially born.
Gutierrez votes for the use of federal tax dollars to fund Planned Parenthood, which has reportedly openly violated federal law by “donating” baby body party to research organizations that in turn donate money to Planned Parenthood.If anything– using Gutierrez’s logic– Trump’s policies are exactly what would have saved Jesus because he opposes abortion.
Jesus traveled from Bethlehem to Egypt to avoid mass genocide– the very policy Democrats enforce–by funding mass murder of babies who are living just like Jesus was. If Gutierrez’s policies were carried out Jesus would have been killed long before Herod’s decree– because his mother was a low-income, unmarried teenager. Jesus, would have been a burden to society, an unplanned, unwanted pregnancy, according to the standards expressed by Planned Parenthood.
If Planned Parenthood existed in the first century (and outside of God’s plan for the world) there could have been no baby Jesus, no Christmas, and no Christianity, because unwed mothers like Mary would have been encouraged to kill their child.
But God, not globalists, is in power. God ordained Mary to have a son, whose name and purpose was known before he was born: Jesus, the Christ child, was named “Immanuel,” meaning “God with us.”
In the New Testament book of Matthew, Jesus’s disciple explains how Jesus’s flight to Egypt was a fulfillment of biblical prophecy– “Out of Egypt I called my son.” (Hos. 11:1)
Jesus’s flight to Egypt had absolutely nothing to do with government policies– other than that Herod’s policy was part of God’s plan.
Despite the ongoing murders committed by Planned Parenthood and politicians like Gutierrez who support it, God is in control of history. Even before Jesus was later killed by the Romans, he said Jesus would need to die in order to fulfill prophesy. (Matt. 26:53) Even his death, and later his resurrection and ascension, was all under God’s control.
Gutierrez was politically exploiting the birth of Jesus for his own political agenda. His comments are so far removed from the truth that if they weren’t dangerous, they would be comical.
His antics appear to be a sham– to use Christmas as a way to promote abortionist policies.
