Making Joseph and Mary into representatives of modern refugees violates history, minimizes the suffering of the present, and misrepresents the suffering of the past. #AnachronismIsNeverTruth
It might make you feel better to think that Joseph and Mary should have been treated better and that, concomitantly, so should modern refugees. But you violate truth by misrepresentation.
Of course refugees should be treated better, humanely. But turning ancient travelers into refugees accomplishes absolutely NOTHING.
