The Nativity

In Uncategorized on December 8, 2007 at 5:25 pm

Would you Adam & Eve it; or more appropriately, would you Mary & Joseph it? If I recall, Mary & Joseph had to go to Bethlehem, in Judea, to register their names in a census. That’s the gist of it anyway. The only reason they could not find accommodation for the night, was because they arrived late and all the rooms were taken. Simple as that.

Could anyone tell me then what that has to do with asylum seekers entering Britain illegally and then being turned away from these shores. Nothing? I would agree; unfortunately the BBC do not.

Iain Dale has referred to an article from The Spectator which reports ‘the BBC making a new version of the Nativity, with Jesus and Mary as asylum seekers turned away by Britain.’

Just like Iain, I will let you draw your own conclusions, however I would like to ask one question: Is this a dig at Christianity or do the BBC think everyone who tries to enter Britain should be allowed to stay indefinitely? I can’t make my mind up.

  1. On a similar-ish theme check out what the BBC had to say about Ralph Vaufhan Williams. It’s in the Observer.

  3. Any country that lets border control and immigration get out of control will pay a heavy price. Australia was a bit heavy handed, but it did serve to deter illegal immigration. The UK seems a bit too liberal in this area. There will always be more people who would like to come than a country can afford to support. You also have to get a balance of immigrants so that it is not all negative and that immigrants who the country wants can contribute.
