Responding to Idiocy: RNC spokesman defends Christmas message after backlash from ignoramuses on social media including top aide to John Kasich

The Bible teaches not to get into an argument with a fool otherwise people won't be able to tell the difference as to who is the real fool. 
Unfortunately, an RNC spokesman has to get into an argument with Biblically illiterate morons on social media over a Christmas message sent by the RNC,

Fox News reports a Republican National Committee official lashed out at critics after part of a Christmas statement it made Sunday sparked outrage on social media.
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.
John Weaver, a top aide to Ohio Gov. John Kasich, was among those who tweeted their displeasure with the statement.

RNC spokesman and future Trump press secretary Sean Spicer defended the message, telling CNN the reference didn’t have anything to do with Trump and “Christ is the King in the Christian faith.”
Spicer later said that it was “sad & disappointing you are politicizing such a holy day.”

There is nothing about this paragraph that remotely compares Donald Trump to Jesus Christ.  Only someone looking to attack Trump with a convoluted mind would even attempt such a charge.  So I can easily excuse idiots on social media for being Biblically illiterate and not understanding that paragraph is totally about Jesus Christ as the new King, full stop!  Christmas is the celebration of His birth as Christ the Savior, Kings of Kings, and Lord of Lords.  However, I would think a top aide to John Kasich, John Weaver, would be familiar with this.  Sad to say he's just as ignorant as the masses on social media.
