Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) said Tuesday that “Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on” during a discussion about the refugees expected to come to the United States and how the course of the conversation might change as the holiday season approaches.
Babin sat down for a radio interview with Brietbart News’ Stephen Bannon, who asked the congressman to comment on the anti-refugee “haters.”
“What they’re going to bring up over the holiday season is, ‘Mary and Joseph were refugees. Mary and Joseph when they went into Egypt were refugees,’” Bannon said.
In response, Babin brought up the terror attacks in Paris which left at least 129 people dead.
“Well, Steve, I would just say this,” Babin responded. “Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on them, and these folks do. You can see it in technicolor in Paris.”
