Rogue Christianity

I saw this one on the Aussie Conservative blog. It’s an interesting article about the attempt to depict the Holy Family as refugees. I’d like to note that though you could argue perhaps that they were refugees for a while, you cannot argue that the Holy Family was a refugee family throughout all of Jesus’s childhood as, if anyone remembers from the Bible, when Jesus is twelve, there is an important scene where Jesus gets lost in the temple–which is in Jerusalem. This, among other passages in the Bible, indicates that at some point, Jesus and his parents return from the land of Egypt, and to return to your land would mean that you are no longer a refugee. Enjoy!
