(Mt 2:7-8):
Then Herod called the magi secretly and ascertained from them the time of the star’s appearance.

He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search diligently for the child. When you have found him, bring me word, that I too may go and do him homage.”

Herod essentially professes to be a Christian when it suits his ends, which is to give cover to his intention to murder the innocent child. Failing that, he is fine with mass murder of the Holy Innocents.

In modern times we see the same general behavior in those professing Christianity but support abortion.
