Obama mangles Bible verses, uses Mary and Joseph finding ‘no room at the inn’ as illegal immigration analogy!

Determined to use the Christmas story and a “good book” reference to sell his executive action on immigration, President Obama managed to skew one and screw up the other during a town hall speech in in Nashville Tuesday.

And Twitter users pounced.

At one point, Obama tried to use the story of Mary and Joseph finding “no room at the inn” as an analogy for illegal immigrants, according to Breitbart.

But it didn’t take long to point out the flaw there.

Actually, they were the very opposite of illegal aliens. According to the story in Luke, they were traveling to Bethlehem, in their native land, because of a law, not in spite of one. The president also seems to think the old adage about “people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” comes from the Bible too.  

He’s not wrong. Glass houses are pretty rare in the 21st century. There were zero back then.  

Even the devil can try to quote scripture.
