Barack Obama tried to use the Bible to jab at opponents of his amnesty decree for illegal aliens. It didn’t exactly go as planned.
Obama tried to take advantage of the Christmas season to use a“good book” reference to sell that very unpopular amnesty for more than 5 million illegal aliens, during a town hall speech in in Nashville Tuesday.
First, Obama tried to use the story of Mary and Joseph finding “no room at the inn” to imply they were just like illegal aliens, according to Breitbart.
Twitter users didn’t take long to educate the Reverend Obama:
Hey, Obama ! Mary and Joseph weren't #illegalaliens that jumped the border and expected free benefits they didn't earn or deserve.

As Joe Saunders pointed out:
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.
Then Obama tried to bash amnesty opponents by citing the old adage from the “good book” that “people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones:”
There’s only one problem…
Pretty sure the Bible has nothing about throwing stones in glass houses. But please correct me if I’m wrong. https://t.co/jpz8KFctfq

You’re not wrong, Charlie. It’s not in there. Anywhere. Houses didn’t even use glass windows until the 17th Century.
@charliespiering Geez. Obama found throwing stones/glass houses phrase in the Bible? Which Bible is that?

Perhaps Obama should stick with a “holy book” he actually knows.
