At Christmas time, should the Nativity story be interpreted as a tale of solidarity with illegal immigrants?

God and his son are both white. Prove otherwise or STFU and GTFO.
Excerpts from the bible suggest otherwise. Looks like God is chrysolite & bronze... not white. Seems God was a anything but white.

Ezekiel 43:2 and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.
Daniel 10:6 His body was like chrysolite, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.

Was Jesus real? I keep getting him mixed up with the Trix rabbit, because they are both fake!
I think Jesus was a real man. Was he the Son of God? Well isn't everyone Gods children? Moreover... what Jesus did in those times was challenge the Pharisees and Religious beliefs at the time and for the most part liberated many people from ancient orthodox religious ways and in doing so he was killed for it.

So to me, he's significant that he changed the way people portrayed God but for that, I feel no need to worship him. IMO... he was just a man like Martin Luther King who was influential & persuasive enough to change the way people think about an incorrect "establishment" and was killed for doing so.

No need to site law... It was clear that during Roman Empire, there were borders and Roman Soldiers fought against Barbarians and other surrounding empires. So it's blatantly obvious that Jesus was illegally entering territory with no permission from the Roman Empire or other Empires at all.

Take a look at where he and his disciples preached. They crossed many borders.

Don't try to interject our immigration laws that were created 2000+ later by the USA into ancient times.

That's so stupid and at a pathetic rebuke by you.

Exactly, genius- no laws were broken. It's one thing to have borders, it's another to have laws against crossing them. Clearly it's YOU projecting present laws into a 2000 year old scenario.

Rico, you wet back piece of chit, you have YET to answer my question. If you illegal leeches are so valuable, then why does the government of Mexico tell you to move to the US? Wouldn't they want such hard-working, family-oriented assets to stay on Mexico to work on its space program, teach in their universities and design their computers? The answer of course is that real Mexicans hate you scum. You are garbage to them. Look at Mexican soap operas. Do any of the people on those shows look like you subhuman illegal aliens? Mexico has thrown its trash over the fence into the US. Answer the question, you walking turd. You greasy slime sucker.

I don't have to believe that God is a spirit. Ever hear of freedom of religion? I recommend that if you want to pretend to be an Americans... you start acting like one and respect the 1st amendment to the US Constitution.

I don't need some fake Indian telling me what I have to believe.

First of all, Mexico has never told their Citizens to move to the USA illegally so i'll have to stop you there based on the fact that the content of your rhetoric is a fabrication of your own ignorance.

But hey... Jesus was an illegal alien and you worship an illegal alien. Pretty funny!!!!

And aren't you glad they did? Imagine Mexico with an larger population at that time... wait... we see that today with the influx of illegal aliens from Latin America today!!!

It makes you wonder how the Mexican-American war would have turned out had the Spanish not dented the Mexican population just 20 years prior. Just think about it, Mexico didn't even have enough time to breed a sizable army....
