Holy Refugees

"That Makes Us Refugees, Right?" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

When Mary and Joseph fled to protect the life of their son,  Jesus, they became refugees. Unless I am sadly mistaken that makes Jesus a refugee.

How is it then that so many Evangelical Christians worship a refugee on Sunday, but despise refugees the rest of the week? Am I missing something here? Or, is there a true disconnect with what so many of us profess and what we really believe?
