A Jewish mother's take on the freakout over Syrian refugees and general seasonal hypocrisy

From Lauren's email to me:

The combination of rightwing freakouts over Syrian refugees and Starbucks cups prompted me to ask, "Where's The Judeo In Judeo-Christian?" (yes, I know, sometimes my mind can be a scary place to be!)

From the song:

"Seems the right wing's ramping up its base hypocrisies
With their current freakout over Syrian refugees
Of course this time of year you wonder how they'd view the danger
From a certain brown-skinned family who was staying in a manger.
We're not a Christian country, that's a real historic fact
Besides there's nothing 'Christian' in the way these nutjobs act"
