[Ed. – Apparently we have indeed become a nation of idiots. Obviously, a message that speaks from a Christian perspective about Jesus Christ and Christmas is not referring to anyone — not even He Who Shall Not Be Named — as a newer King. Perhaps the wording was a tad infelicitous, but it is quite literally idiotic to get your nose out of joint over it.]
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus released a three-paragraph statement on the holiday, but it was the first paragraph that drew critics’ attention.
“Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.”
The message kicked off a heated debate on social media over whether the reference to a “new King” was about President-elect Donald Trump.
