Pope Francis urged the world’s 1.3-billion Catholics not to ignore the plight of migrants who are “driven from their land” because of leaders willing to shed “innocent blood”. The Pope compared them with Joseph and Mary but failed to mention that Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem to register for a census under a Roman government decree. They were not refugees. Mary did not leave Nazareth until King Herod issued a decree to kill all the newborn male children because he heard that the Messiah had been born and he wanted to exterminate competition for power. The family left to escape Herod and went to Egypt temporarily, which was also part of the Roman empire. The family returned to Nazareth when it was safe. -GEG
