On Sunday, Al Sharpton told his 522,000 Twitter followers that Jesus Christ was a refugee who fled to Egypt, the Daily Caller reported. Naturally, that didn’t sit too well with a number of people.
“Before you head to church today,” he wrote, “remember to thank God for his son, Jesus a refugee who fled to Egypt.”
Before you head to church today, remember to thank God for his son, Jesus a refugee who fled to Egypt.

Some reminded Sharpton that Jesus wasn’t a “refugee” and his parents weren’t fleeing to Egypt:
@Wargs77 @jccolange @StephenKing umm, his parents weren't refugees. They traveled to pay their taxes. Please Al

Forgetting that Joseph was returning to pay his taxes(unlike you) & that God told him where to go! Speaking of going….

One person asked Sharpton:
Have you even opened a Bible in your entire life?

I bet Jesus didn't owe $4 million dollars in back taxes to Nazareth either.

One person reminded Sharpton of the real reason one should thank God for His Son:
