CNN guest priest pummeled for ‘embarrassingly wrong’ take on Jesus as a new Christmas narrative emerges

A priest’s Christmas morning take on Jesus Christ as a “Palestinian Jew” was panned for “embarrassingly wrong” forced parallels that seemingly scapegoat Israel.

If it weren’t already clear, CNN is not short for Catholic News Network, and Father Edward Beck’s appearance Monday proved “Clown News Network” would be a more apt description. As laity and clergy alike have been forced to contend with globalism’s perceived tainting of the faith via Pope Francis’ recent declaration on the blessing of same-sex couples and the targeted removal of cardinals and bishops for “speaking the Truth of…Catholic faith,” Beck only added to the “woke-ification” of the church with some revisionist history.

“I think the message of Christmas is that God enters into it with us and we’re not alone in it. What I’m so struck by is that the story of Christmas is about a Palestinian Jew — how often do you find those words put together?” asked Beck of Poppy Harlow.

“A Palestinian Jew born into a time when his country was occupied, right? They can’t find a place for her to even give birth, his mother. They’re homeless. They eventually have to flee as refugees into Egypt, no less. I mean, you can’t make up the parallels to our current world situation right now,” continued the priest forcing an ill-fitting round peg through a square hole.

“And so in some way, that is who we believed God becomes, born into that situation and yet, that very man, Jesus, says love one another, love your enemies,” remarked Beck. “There is hope. There is light in the darkness. I’m attesting to that. So somehow that God enters that experience of suffering and that struggles and is actually born into it, that is what is so miraculous about this celebration for me.”

Along with many quoting scripture in response to the priests recounting of the nativity story to highlight “When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea,” Beck was lambasted on social media as a “pandering hypocrite,” “manipulative [clown]” and in need of being defrocked by Pope Francis for “literally making up the parallel that Jesus was Palestinian live on air.”

New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz slammed Beck as “embarrassingly wrong” in his latest venture in politicized priesthood having been a prominent Pfizer peddler during COVID declaring ahead of Christmas 2021, “Yep. I said it. I don’t think unvaccinated people should be gathering in churches for Christmas Eve / Day Masses. ‘Love thy neighbor,’ says the Savior.”

His take on Jesus Christ as a “Palestinian Jew” came as Christianity Today contended “He was Asian” and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) pumped out a similar Gospel rewrite on Christmas Eve where she said, “He was part of a targeted population being indiscriminately killed to protect an unjust leader’s power. Mary and Joseph, displaced by violence and forced to flee, became refugees in Egypt with a newborn waiting to one day return home.”

“Thousands of years later, right-wing forces are violently occupying Bethlehem as similar stories unfold for today’s Palestinians, so much so that the Christian community in Bethlehem has cancelled this year’s Christmas Eve celebrations out of both safety and respect,” the congresswoman added with her own highly politicized take.

Beck would go on to block certain people on social media for calling attention to his “Palestinian Jew” take, but that didn’t stop users like actor Matthew Marsden from calling him out and reminding that much of the problem comes from within the hierarchy of the Vatican.

“I am a Catholic father of nine, and I am so sick of these liberal Priests. Can we just enjoy Christmas without you pushing a political agenda? No point in tagging [Cardinal Timothy] Dolan,” Marsden told Samwawal Foundations founder Avi Kaner. “The Bishops won’t do a thing.”
