God directed him to the stables where the animals were waiting, while still in his mother’s belly.
If God controlled everything, then God could have made way at the Inn. But God didn’t according to legend.
Most people aren’t all that religious. They’re part of a community where there’s safety in numbers – everybody knows who you are even if they don’t know you personally.
So what was the significance of Jesus being born among the animals in the stables?
Come on, Jesus, the most powerful influence over humans on the planet for over two thousand years already, not rich even or powerfully connected, and there’s no significance beyond it just happened that way? No plan you mean?
There must be a significance, other than the obvious ‘no rooms left for vagrants’ or maybe they had money. What were they? On the lam? From what? Running from those who would stone a pregnant woman with no husband? And what would those authorities do to those who housed such people? I don’t know. I didn’t live back then. This is now.
The animals are my mission – to help raise and complete that which was purposely lost over time – since Jesus’ people left them out of their book based on their perceived lack of worthiness.
Now that’s a glaring prejudice toward all beings who God supposedly created, then optically paired in a manger scene with God’s supposed only human son as obviously worthy of something other than torture and slaughter.
Well, the books say God’s only son, which means God had more than one daughter, maybe half the human race.
Going back, it seems also according to legend, that a star shined bright in the sky, making way for three wise men (no women here; sounds like a union) whose purpose it was to give gifts to the newborn.
Any room in the Inn for the wiseguys? Well, you can do as the Jews do and accept without questioning the facts or motives of God.
Now there’s a dictatorship that needs undoing – especially when a religion is based in part on the consumption of God’s greatest creations being eaten alive and expelled down the shitter as a sign of respecting whom?
The Christians who more than any religion speak of a morality above all others have of course Jesus as their figurehead and money motivating tool to separate the rich from the poor. Another glaring prejudice.
The other animals don’t much matter in their lives, except to exploit for the purpose of attaining wealth.
What did you do, make a deal with your devil to separate yourselves from all other animals and make yourselves their God? Their Keeper?
God made you in God’s image? Not in the image of any other animal? In whose image did God make all the other animals?
So the animals in the stable were put there by your design, and the three wiseguys stayed in the Inn after the Innkeeper denied a pregnant woman a room?
Those wiseguys were so generous that they refused to give up their room for her? But brought her gifts and displayed them in front of all the other animals?
It doesn’t matter who stayed in the Inn. Jesus was born among the other animals and that’s where the star led the wiseguys – to the stables.
Or maybe the star led them to the Inn. When they arrived there was no room for any wiseguys wanting to barter, so they were also directed to the stables for shelter from the brewing sand storm.
What is the significance of all that?
One animal kingdom under God? And in that kingdom humans shall reign supreme?
We’ve got some prejudicial issues here. The wiseguys were humans too.
Maybe it’s humans with money reign supreme, unless they anger other humans with money, then they go to jail.
No room in the inn for non-paying customers, pregnant, bearing gifts or not.
Whichever way you slant it, Jesus was born among the animals and Christians decided to omit them except for a cameo appearance in their stories, since they wanted to exploit them for profit.
Jesus isn’t here; he can’t stop us.
