The Episcopalian Christ Church Cathedral in Indiana, Indianapolis, put the display up on Monday night, saying the Biblical family were refugees too.

The church said it was in response to the US justice department's separation of migrant children from their parents.

7. And make sure that all ways of reuniting the Christ family are lost in the bureaucracy.

I'm sure ICE would not like these people speaking some furrin (Aramaic) language with swarthy skin tones.

8. Whohoo for sanity and humanity,

Wish the thief in charge had even one drop of humanity or compassion, but he certainly does not.

11. Reminder to all Sado Christians:Jesus,Mary & Joseph were asylum seekers fleeing violence

In their consummate cruelty, Repug "Christians" all seem to have ignored that fact.

12. This church has an interesting history.

It's the oldest church in the county and the oldest building on Monument Circle. It's very pretty and nestled on a small plot of ground surrounded by high rises. Thanks for posting erronis.

13. Indiana, 'eh? Very un-Pence-ish.

A very good reminder. The Holy Family indeed were refugees.
