MSNBC Host FAIL: Jesus was born to a unwed single mom and a doting step-father

Defending the single parent families, MSNBC Melissa Harris-Perry used Jesus as an example and said that even He was born to an “unwed mom with a doting step-father”:

To compare Mary and Joseph having Jesus to a single mother in this day and age is ludicrous and it shows how stupid this host is to even make the comparison. But even the comparison is wrong on all counts and makes clear she knows little of the birth of Jesus.



First of all, let’s not forget we’re talking about the Immaculate Conception. That’s part of the miracle of Christ’s birth, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit. She wasn’t just sleeping around with Joseph and just happened to get pregnant because she forgot to take her birth control pill. And when Mary realized she was with child, she and Joseph did get married after an angel convinced Joseph that this was a divine conception by the Holy Spirit, and it was before she gave birth:

Matthew 1:24, 25, “Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.”

So Mary wasn’t ‘unwed’ nor was she a single mom. Nor was Joseph a ‘step-father’. He was the earthly father of Jesus, just as Mary was the earthly mother of Jesus.

Ugh. Total and complete MSNBC fail.

Perhaps this ugly public display of ignorance about our precious Jesus is a good thing as it highlights the need for Christians everywhere to make sure they are studying the word so that they can teach others. Christians must not stand idly by and allow society to pass on false doctrine.

Another maladjusted misanthrope. No doubt the very qualifications necessary to be a talking head on stupid TV. Here’s what the Lord said about the Virgin birth: “Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: ‘Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!’” – Luke 2: 10-14 Even Linus got it right. Only a complete butt-wipe would change one of the most awe-inspiring accounts in the Bible to something dirty.… Read more »

Obama supporters have changed the Nation motto from “In God We Trust” to “Ignorance Is Bliss”. Perfect example here.
Strip away all the distractions and hype, and it’s quite clear that this all comes down to good vs evil, which is to say Holy God vs Satan. You know, just EXACTLY as the Bible said it would.

I only meant it to be slightly sarcastic. Libs have been insisting for decades that they have the ‘right’ to shack-up and raise children without the burden of bothering to marry. It’s only the Homosexual community, which has always had the ‘right to shack-up and raise children, that now seem to feel they need access to the ‘word’ marriage. And that’s what it’s all about. Access to the word, not the instution.

This is one of the more ridiculous things I’ve heard a liberal say and there are many. As you pointed out, my first thought was Joseph and Mary were married before Jesus was born so she was not an unwed mother. Jesus not only had a loving stepfather, he also had the devotion and love of his Heavenly Father.

Aww – she should’ve mentioned that Mary and Joseph also were ‘migrants’ … /sarc

I wonder why all these socialists/atheists are so fond of using the Bible to support their arguments. Why do they not use the quran to explain that yes, pedophile relationships can be very fulfilling? Something odd there, isn’t it.

It is also astonishing that they don’t use Mary’s Song, the ‘Magnificat’ – perhaps they are too scared about being deposed, seeing that they are the powerful now? Or perhaps there is far too much praise and glory to Our Creator in that song – that must make them very uncomfortable indeed!

While I am on Archbishop Fulton Sheen here, this quote fits what you just said:

Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals

Pretty well sums up what you said about their fear of being deposed now that they have the power.

Matthew 1:18: ‘Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit; and her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit; she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”

Just saying.

These pompous liberals like to pretend like they know the Bible and the life and teachings of Jesus so well to assuage their filthy ideology. I’m glad you pointed out that Mary was wed at the time of Christ’s born. I thought every child knew the story of Joseph traveling with his pregnant wife when she experience birth pangs. Throughout Mary’s pregnancy, she was wed.

The Immaculate Conception does not refer to Jesus being conceived by God. It is not the same thing as the Virgin Birth.

Furthermore, you can’t really “sleep around” with your husband (or any single partner for that matter). I think that’s normally called “being married.”

Using Jesus Holy Name to make a political point is pretty low. Perhaps this foolish young woman has forgotten that she too will one day stand before the Throne of God for judgement.

Good points RS. Mary did not lie “in the flesh” to get pregnant. The Creator of all things planted the seed that created His Son in the flesh of Mary.

I suppose that liberal so called Christians would buy into this kind of crap.
